Three Bedrooms, Two Baths, One Very Dead Corpse
Location, location, location.
After a divorce from her husband and business partner, Alex, Amanda Thorne is determined to make it on her own in real estate--despite scorpions, 100-degree heat, and an encounter with a cactus en route to her first big listing. But when she finally arrives at the Mid-century modern manse, a lifeless body in the living room really spoils the ambiance.
With the reluctant cooperation of dishy Detective Ken Becker, Amanda sets out to unravel the truth. But after a fellow real estate agent is murdered, some pissed-off Black Widow spiders infest her car, and a body is found floating in her pool, it's clear someone wants Amanda's inquiring mind off the market--permanently.
""James's sparkling debut introduces an appealing new sleuth. . .Witty, accident-prone Amanda should attract fans of Laura Levine."" --Publishers Weekly
David James has not written any screenplays, has never received a Pulitzer, and is not a regular contributor to National Public Radio. He is currently working on his next Amanda Thorne mystery.
James's sparkling debut introduces an appealing new sleuth, dizzy Palms Springs, Calif., realtor Amanda Thorne. Still adjusting to single life after divorcing Alex, her super successful but decidedly gay husband, Amanda yearns to become Apex Realty's number one agent. Sadly, her first showing of a major listing is a total disaster when she discovers environmentalist Doc Winters fatally poisoned. As Amanda races to clear her name, Alex lends support and police detective Ken Becker offers welcome romantic distraction. Since Doc was against the development of land on the Chino Cone, a local landmark, Amanda suspects that pro-development realtor Mary Dodge might be guilty. The subsequent murders of another agent and Doc's girlfriend add a stressful twist, and Amanda figures there's more at stake than just closing a deal or saving the environment. Witty, accident-prone Amanda should attract fans of Rick Copp, Laura Levine, and R.T. Jordan. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
