Charlie Greene, the L.A. literary agent who bumbled into a murder investigation in Murder at Moot Point, tries once again to outwit police. When fellow workers become suspects in the murder of their universally unloved office receptionist, no one has an ironclad alibi, so Greene balances her own hectic schedule, an unpredictable teenager, and a tenacious homicide detective in order to help them out. Before she discovers the receptionist's "hold" on the murderer, further murder and mayhem occur. Humorous, inviting, and Hollywood hectic, this book is written in crisp, likable prose.

From Publishers Weekly: "This semi-supernatural mystery, an uneven work that doesn't live up to its best moments, marks the return of L.A. literary agent Charlie Green. On a day that begins with highway gridlock, a missed appointment and an argument with her acid-tongued teenage daughter, Libby, Charlie also faces the mysterious disappearance of waspish office secretary Gloria Tuschman. Gloria is discovered sprawled out in nearby bushes--dead. Charlie, who tested her sleuthing skills in Murder at Moot Point , is brought in on the case by Gloria herself, whose voice seems to call from the Great Beyond: "Charlie, I'm in the trash can. Help me." Lt. David Dalrymple of the Beverly Hills PD also hopes for her help while Charlie learns that several co-workers have reason to rejoice in Gloria's death. Then, visiting Montana author Mary Ann Leffler also vanishes, leaving Charlie to hunt for more clues in this world and the next. Millhiser is perhaps too successful at making the work of a Hollywood literary agent seem mundane; as for other realms, those unearthly messages, rather than being portentous, are just transparent plot-expediting gimmicks."

Gloria, the secretary at the office where Charlie Green works, keeps telling her that she's psychic, and Gloria should know because Gloria is a witch. And when Gloria ends up dead, her spirit asks Charlie for help in solving her death. But Charlie doesn't believe she's psychic, so when the boss asks her to investigate she decides to do so using logic. Even when she finds herself telling the police where they can find the body of a second dead woman, she still doesn't believe she has any psychic ability.
