Murder With a Twist
Scotch, soda, and a dash of Hammett
Visiting New York to attend a cousin’s birthday gala, Nic and Nigel Martini are looking forward to cocktails with old friends and a pampered stay at the Ritz. But when the birthday girl’s gold- digging cad of a husband goes missing, the Martini family worries that the social event of the season may turn into a story for the scandal sheets.
Nigel’s condescending aunt begs former detective Nic to find sleazy Leo, despite the fact that it would be better for everyone if he just stayed lost. Trailing a married bachelor with a penchant for trouble isn’t pretty; in fact it’s downright deadly. Assisted by Nigel and their newly adopted Bullmastiff, Nic must tangle with her old underworld connections if she hopes to hunt down the dirtiest Martini.
"Even teetotalers will enjoy these Martinis. Here’s hoping Kiely will treat readers to another round."
"Witty, droll, and hilariously spot on. All the smart and entertaining mystery of the iconic original—irresistibly updated in this sophisticated and cleverly imagined page turner."
