From Publishers Weekly Starred Review. Murder's afoot at Dead on Arrival, a crime writers' conference held at Edinburgh's Dalmorton Castle, in Malliet's superior second cozy featuring Det. Chief Insp. Arthur St. Just (after 2008's Death of a Cozy Writer). The same evening that Kimberlee Kalder, queen of the 'chick lit' genre, accepts an award for best debut novel from her publisher, Lord Easterbrook of Deadly Dagger Press, her broken body is found in the castle dungeon. St. Just, who's visiting from Cambridge, and the local DCI learn that not all were thrilled by catty Kimberlee's megaseller, Dying for a Latte. Suspects include Kimberlee's literary agent, who's worried another agent wants to steal her star client, a flamboyant publicist and various jealous authors. Malliet's satirical take on the mystery scene is spot-on. Adding spice is the inspector's new romantic interest, writer and criminologist Portia De'Ath, with whom the love-starved widower becomes deliciously smitten. (Apr.)

From School Library Journal In his second outing after the Malice Domestic Award-winning Death of a Cozy Writer, DCI St. Just is sent to a mystery writers' convention in a Scottish castle to give a talk on his most interesting cases. The gathering is also going to present an award to best-selling author Kimberlee Kalder, who shows herself to be self-absorbed, rude, and a flirt. Of course, the drawbridge is up when the murderer strikes, and we are treated to an old-fashioned Agatha Christie-style mystery in which all the suspects are gathered under one roof. Lots of humor and a bit of "guess who this writer is" make this one a good choice for readers who enjoy intelligent cozies and traditional mysteries.
