Sobre este título:

Sinopsis: #1 in both Amazon's Historical Mystery and General Humorous categories. In 1942, no one had heard of a female shamus, not even in New York City,until now. Meet Persephone 'Percy' Cole, a newly inaugurated privateinvestigator with a penchant for Marlene Dietrich suits, pistachio nuts, and men's fedoras. Halloween finds her backstage during the previews of the latest Broadway production of Shakespeare's Macbeth, where there'sdouble, double, toil and trouble. When an actor falls from the overheadcatwalk and breaks his neck, it's only the latest in a series ofcatastrophes fueling the lore surrounding Macbeth and its supernaturalpower since the play's creation in 1606. Armed only with her noodle and a WWI German Mauser pistol, Percy is not sure which is worse, havingsomeone try to kill her or being foisted into the role of Witch NumberTwo. Is the centuries-old curse coming true or is a killer out to strike terror into the cast and crew of the Scottish play? Percy intends to strike back before anyone else dies.

From the Author: Persephone 'Percy' Cole came about after the research I did on the early nineteen-forties for my stand-alone circus noir mystery, Death of a Clown. I didn't want all of that information to go to waste! Earlier in the year, I was challenged to write a mystery series with a protagonist who wasn't an ideal beauty, i.e. the perfect figure and face. I created Persephone (Percy) Cole, who at 5'11" and a full-figured gal, answered the criteria. Little did I know that in using a character who was often physically bigger and stronger than most men during that time, I was offering up a woman who was quite comfortable in being a female Sam Spade. Taking place in lower Manhattan at the beginning of World War Two, the series is a lot of fun to write and certainly keeps me on my toes. Any products, sayings, things like that I think might have been around at that time, I need to do research on. Sometimes the answers are surprising. I love that part. And the readers seem to be enjoying the Percy Cole Vintage series, too! I love that even more.

Descripción Wives of Bath Press, 2017. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Persephone Percy Cole joins the ranks of other gumshoes such as Sam Spade, Lew Archer, and Phillip Marlowe. This five-foot eleven, full-figured gal has the same hard-boiled, take-no-prisoners attitude, but with a difference. She s a shamus with a wicked sense of humor and the mother of an eight-year old son. Halloween, 1942, finds Percy Cole backstage during the previews of the latest Broadway production of Shakespeare s Macbeth. There s double, double, toil and trouble when an actor falls from an overhead catwalk and breaks his neck. Only the latest in a series of catastrophes, his death serves to further fuel the lore and superstition surrounding the Scottish play and its supernatural force since the play s creation in 1606. With a shortage of man power due to the war overseas, the desperate producer takes a chance on the female PI to save the show from closing. But everyone has their secrets, from the director on down to the lowliest spear thrower. One more murder and a near death scene for Percy, and she s not sure which is worse - that someone is trying to kill her or being foisted into the role of Witch Number Two. Armed with her noodle and a WWI German Mauser, Persephone Cole will make things right, because that s what lady dicks do. Nº de ref. de la librería APC9780988408654
