Mimi Goldman is back—on a missing-persons case that becomes the third page-turning Chautauqua mystery novel from award-winning New York Post headline writer Deb Pines.
This time, Mimi, a lovable Chautauquan Daily reporter, NYC expat and single mom, is asked to find Jenny Van Alstine, a beautiful feminist artist, who has disappeared from Chautauqua, an idyllic, summer, lakeside arts community.
Instead, Mimi finds a surprising number of Jenn-emies—haters, lovers and secret keepers—and one killer determined to stop Mimi before she stops them.
“A pleasant quick read with a likable heroine,” says Kirkus Reviews, adding: “The juxtaposition of murder against the tranquil setting of the institution works its magic once again.”
“Required reading,” says the New York Post.
“A fun, compelling mystery with interesting characters, surprising plot twists and an investigator to root for,” says a Goodreads reviewer.
About the Author
Deb Pines was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and grew up in Miami Beach, Fla. A newspaper reporter for two decades (for the New York Law Journal, Indianapolis Star and other papers), she’s now a copy editor for the New York Post. There she uses her word-nerd grammar skills to edit stories—and her snark and love for wordplay to write headlines.
Pines is also the author of three novels and a novelette in the Agatha Christie-like Mimi Goldman murder mystery series, including her 2013 top-selling debut IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH (about which the Jamestown Post-Journal wrote: “If you enjoy an old-fashioned whodunit, it’s perfect.”)
A mother of two grown kids and a Brown University grad, Pines is also a lover of show tunes, Scrabble, hiking, cooking and indoor cycling. She lives in New York City with her husband Dave.
