Greg Garrison is a happy guy today. Riding in his flashy convertible he’s showing off to the world that he’s become a success in the movie business. These are Greg’s last moments on this earth.
Detective Millard Whitney is asked by a friend of his, the CEO of a film production company, to investigate. Millard immediately finds that Greg Garrison made many enemies on his way to the top. Certain directors, producers, and actors all had a stake in seeing Garrison gone from the scene. But there are also suspects from Garrison’s personal life: infidelity and humiliation can be strong motives for murder. Even as a child, Greg harmed the people closest to him. 
Thrown into the mix are also a terrorist link and some local gang bangers. But the cause of Greg Garrison’s death might be what happens to us all when we’re young. Fantasy, played out, has consequences in the real world.
For this case, Millard himself becomes more personally involved when a lady he cares about is drawn into the net. The key to the case seems to lie in Greg Garrison’s past, but when he swims into these deeper waters, Millard become caught in a maelstrom that he wasn’t prepared for. Should the past remain buried, or will it be Millard who’s finally buried?
Millard begins to know, even halfway through this case, that if a film were made of his investigation, it would be called, “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” The problem the detective finds is that he’s having great difficulty separating one from the other. And he’d better do it quickly, or the new title for the movie will be, “The Quick and the Dead,” with Millard quickly dead.

Judy Fitzwater's comic mystery tour de force, originally published by Ballantine Books, is finally available in electronic format.

Jennifer Marsh is a mystery writer with a stack of eight unpublished manuscripts and rejection letters to match filling her closet. She's sure that if she can just get famous for something, someone will have to publish her books. Why not murder?

She'll find a target so mean that she'd actually be doing the world a favor by bumping him or her off. And she knows just the person:
Penney Richmond, a high-powered literary agent who's made it her job to ruin people's lives. All Jennifer has to do is frame herself, do the deed, and come out with an iron-clad alibi, and she'll be well on her way to getting a three book deal. So what if she chickens out at the last minute? A vegetarian good girl who rescued a greyhound could never actually kill someone. But when Penney is found murdered and the police think Jennifer did it, she’d better find the real murderer before she goes away... for life.

Along with her eccentric writer's group, spunky old ladies with a nose for sleuthing, her neurotic greyhound, and a sexy, sarcastic reporter named Sam, Jennifer embarks on a journey filled with danger, deception, and disguises that could leave her Dying to Get Published..

"The French call this time l'heure bleu – The Blue Hour. The time between dawn and sunrise when the sun is below the horizon, and the world is awash with a hazy blue shadowed hue that suspends us between the accepted divisions of light and dark. It should have been beautiful. For me, it was now only beautifully deadly..."

Take one decidedly anti-social alcoholic female British ex-cop with an attitude - Alex Churchill...

Add a tough, no-nonsense enigmatic American Private Eye who isn't quite all he appears - Gideon Wade...

Enmesh them in a dark and deadly web of international intrigue engineered by a shadowy criminal organisation for whom human life is just another commodity to be cynically traded for power and profit...

Then dive for cover as fists fly, blood spills and all hell breaks loose!
