From the author of the popular Amelia Peabody, Egyptian anthropologist/sleuth series, another twisty-plotted novel.
Jacqueline Kirby is a college librarian with a mordant wit and an inveterate penchant for getting into trouble. Amid the pink and purple prose of a romance writers' convention, she sticks her nose into bloody, red murder. But her prying ways may get her into as much trouble as the bodice-rippers' heroines.
A fun read!

From back cover: ---Is murder tax-deductible?
Jacqueline Kirby decided to get away from the weather and doldrums at Coldwater College in Nebraska. A trip to New York would be ideal and since she is the assistant head librarian at the college, she can take the trip as a tax-deductible professional expense: She will attend the converntion of the Historical Romance Writers of the World.
The visit is everything that Jacqueline thought it would be and more. Much more. First, Dubretta Duberstein, the scandal columnist, dies under mysterious circumstances. She DID have a bad heart, of course, but... Then, one of the most popular of the writers at the convention, Valerie Valentine, asks Jacqueline for help. Someone, it seems, is threatening to kill the novelist.
