Description

Cape Cod! To Lydia Vivaldi, the seaside village of Quansett looks like sanctuary--until she learns her only friend here was killed last month. How could an ace Fix-It Chick fall off a ladder at a film shoot? Over lunch at Leo's Back End, Lydia’s probing sparks a flirtation with the filmmaker, but no answers. When Leo offers her the job of soup-chef, she grabs it--and soon realizes quite a few people in Quansett know more than they’re telling. Leo’s Wampanoag dessert chef had a fling with the dead girl. His gossipy head cook claims that wasn’t her only secret romance. But the police have closed the case, and the parents don’t want anyone tarnishing their daughter’s memory. Only Edgar Rowdey, famous author of creepy little books, shares Lydia's suspicions. Can this unlikely pair of sleuths find out what really happened before it happens again?

About the author

CJ Verburg is an award-winning playwright and director and the author of best-selling books including 5 international anthologies (Bedford/St. Martin’s). She wrote her first prize-winning play at 16 and her second, a full-length rock musical, in 1968. As a Cape Codder for 15+ years, she helped found the Provincetown Playwrights’ Lab and headed theater companies in Provincetown, Bourne, and Cotuit. Meanwhile, as a freelance science editor and writer, she worked on projects from Powers of Ten (Scientific American Library) to Ghosts in the Mind’s Machine (Norton). Her multimedia memoir Edward Gorey Plays Cape Cod, and her Edgar Rowdey Cape Cod mystery series (starting with Croaked and Zapped), grew out of her long collaboration on theatrical and other adventures with her neighbor and friend, the artist and author Edward Gorey. Verburg’s plays include The Whistling Pig, Lady Day in Love, and Spin, or Twilight of the Bohemians (winner of the Ashland New Plays Festival). Her Cory Goodwin mystery series (starting with Silent Night Violent Night and Another Number for the Road) stars the international journalist daughter of Rex Stout’s NY private eye Archie Goodwin.
