**Book one in a new playful and trope-bending mystery series featuring a
queer, nameless amateur detective.**

**“Candas Jane Dorsey’s terrific mysteries are what would happen if Raymond
Chandler and Frank N. Furter collaborated on cozies and the heroine were a
pansexual private detective with heart, smarts, and a T-shirt saying MASCARA
IS THE NEW NOIR.” — Sarah Smith, author of the _New York Times_  Notable Book
_The Vanished Child_.**

Rescued from torpor and poverty by the need to help a good friend deal with
the murder of her beloved granddaughter, our downsized-social-worker
protagonist and her cat, Bunnywit, are jolted into a harsh, street-wise world
of sex, lies, and betrayal, to which they respond with irony, wit,
intelligence (except for the cat), and tenacity. With judicious use of the
Oxford comma, pop culture trivia, common mystery tropes, and a keen eye for
deceit, our protagonist swaggers through the mean streets of — yes, a Canadian
city! —  and discovers that what seems at first to be just a grotty little
street killing is actually the surface of a grandiose and glittering set of
criminal schemes.
