From the national bestselling author of Murderers Prefer Blondes. All Paige Turner wants for Christmas is to make it through the season alive. New York City in 1954 can be bad for a girl’s health, especially if she’s a staff writer for a pulp mystery magazine who can’t help getting a little too involved in her work. Not that she’s looking for trouble this time; Detective Dan Street, her new love, has forbidden her from ever making like Sam Spade again. But what’s a girl to do when her late husband’s army buddy turns up with a tale like something out of Daring Detective magazine? His sister murdered. A stash of diamonds to die for hidden in a box of oatmeal. The mystery is a Christmas present Paige can’t resist opening. But with the killer hot on her trail, Paige faces the chilling possibility that this Christmas might be her last. “Paige Turner is the liveliest, most charming detective to emerge in crime fiction in a long time. . . . She is irresistible, a force of nature.”—Ann Waldron, author of The Princeton Murders “1950s New York City comes alive. . . . This is great writing by a fresh talent.”—Nelson DeMille “Prepare to be utterly charmed by the irrepressible Paige Turner.”—Dorothy Cannell

In the spring of 1886, a locomotive disappears from a siding near Marshall, Texas. When a thorough search fails to reveal any trace of it, the Division Manager of the Texas & Louisiana Railway decides to seek assistance from Tennyson Pierce, A Dallas attorney with a reputation for solving unusual crimes. Pierce is accompanied on the journey to East Texas by his new friend, Dr. Jarvis Weston, setting the stage for a tangled investigation that eventually stretches from the financial centers of New York City and Philadelphia to the casinos of western Louisiana. Along the way, Weston proves his worth by uncovering some key evidence concerning a conspiracy to establish a rail monopoly in Texas. However, it is the incisive deductions of Pierce that finally expose the true motive for the theft and lead to a daring confrontation on a remote stretch of track deep within the Piney Woods.

Life has taken a funny turn for Siri Paiboun. After years in obscurity, his country needs him. He is to be their only coroner. Because he's the only doctor left. It's not as flattering as it could be, and when one of the leaders' wives turns up in his hot, shabby, smelly morgue, and he's expected to solve her murder, things take a turn for the worse. He has no experience, training or equipment to speak of, and his only hope are his two trusty assistants - neither of whom know anything either - and his own mental resources. As if this weren't enough, the tortured bodies of several soldiers start floating to the surface of a lake and this second case is even more politically charged than his first. Only Siri's wit, charm and sense of the ridiculous will get him through this...
