Judith Flanders' A Bed of Scorpions
The second book in Flanders' mystery series (after A Murder of Magpies), about an editor at a publishing house, is more of the delightful same! The death here involves the owner of an art gallery, whose co-owner is an old friend (and long-ago ex) of the heroine. And of course the cop she's dating is the one in charge of the investigation! Things quickly go haywire, there are a ton of plausible red herrings, plus more inside scoop on the publishing world--it's all super fun and a great read, just the kind of mystery I like. Flanders is building up a cool little world here, and I definitely hope to see more of it. A/A-.
