A Perfect Manhattan Murder

Author Tracy Kiely shares news of her recent release, A Perfect Manhattan Murder. This is the third installment in her Nic and Nigel Mystery series. Welcome, Tracy.

More about A Perfect Manhattan Murder:
Thrilled that their playwright friend’s Broadway debut was a rousing success, Nic and Nigel are trying to enjoy the A-list after-party with their pal Harper. Unfortunately, all the champagne and repartee in the world aren’t enough to overlook the churlish behavior of Harper’s theater-critic husband, Dan. Nic is shocked the next morning when she learns that Dan’s been murdered. Nigel thinks the world may be a better place without him.
Still, Harper is their friend and they’re intent on helping her any way they can. Invigorated by the thrill of the hunt and fortified by a flood of cocktails, catching the killer becomes the Martinis’ top priority…with their behemoth Bullmastiff Skippy along for the ride.
Includes cocktail recipes.

More about Tracy:
Tracy Kiely is a self-proclaimed Anglophile (a fact which distresses certain members of her Irish Catholic family). She grew up reading Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and watching Hitchcock movies. She fell in love with Austen’s wit, Christie’s clever plots, and Hitchcock’s recurrent theme of “the average man caught in extraordinary circumstances.”
After spending years of trying to find a proper job that would enable her to use her skills garnered as an English major, she decided to write a book. It would, of course, have to be a mystery; it would have to be funny; and it would have to feature an average person caught up in extraordinary circumstances. She began to wonder how the characters in Price and Prejudice might fit into a mystery. What, if after years of living with unbearably rude and condescending behavior, old Mrs. Jenkins up and strangled Lady Catherine? What if Charlotte snapped one day and poisoned Mr. Collins’ toast and jam? Skip ahead several years, and several different plot ideas, and you have her first mystery, Murder at Longbourn.
While she does not claim to be Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, or Hitchcock
(one big reason being that they’re all dead), she has tried to combine the elements of all three in her books.

      Hi, Robin.
      I think she’s a prolific mystery author and has several series out. This book, A Perfect Manhattan Murder, is the third in this series, I believe. Her other series are Jane Austen mysteries, which sounds pretty fun.
      Thanks for your comment.

      Hi, Peggy.
      Thank you so much for your comment. I wonder, do you listen to audiobooks? I ask because some of my books have been made into audiobooks, and I have free copies to give away. I would be delighted to give you a copy of my cozy mystery, Death Goes to the County Fair, and/or my sweet romance, A Beautiful Day in Alaska. Both are pretty tame, in terms of sexual content and violence.
      Thanks again for your comment.
      Best wishes,
