Genre: Mystery
Format: Hard/Soft

Molly Forrester had always hoped opportunity would knock, not throw itself at her feet. She enjoys playing a "Dear Abby" type for Zeitgeist magazine, a Manhattan glossy "wedged on the newsstand somewhere between Marie Claire and Cosmo." But when she literally stumbles onto a crime—tripping over a colleague's body and ruining her new pair of Jimmy Choos—she sees the potential to sink her teeth—or heels—into some real news for a change.

After all, writing a column dealing with people's secrets should be good preparation for solving a murder. Especially since the victim was a notorious lady's man. Still, even an expert could use some help. So Molly enlists Cassady and Tricia, the best friends she always turns to for support, shoes, and the proper cocktail.

She might even take a cue from that cute homicide detective.... Or is he cozying up because he thinks Molly's a killer?

Sheryl J. Anderson delivers a wickedly funny, sexy, and suspenseful novel about one girl tackling a killer in the Big Apple. Compared to negotiating Manhattan's singles scene, solving one eensy teensy stabbing shouldn't be that big a deal.... Right?

"KILLER HEELS, Sheryl Anderson's hip debut mystery, sparkles like fine champagne, an intoxicating mix of wit, perception and insouciance and a wickedly clever but genuine depiction of single life in the City. KILLER HEELS will tap right to the top of the Best First lists."—Carolyn Hart, award-winning author of the Death on Demand mystery series

"This is a fun, "girls' night out" type of book that blends humor, craziness, and mystery.  For all of its light-hearted approach, this still had an interesting plot and decent suspense.  This is definitely a change-of-pace offering, and one that would appeal more to women, but if you want a little spicy fun in the mix, it's worth a try."—Gayle Wedgewood, Mystery News

"Anderson hook readers from the get-go....  Quirky yet believable characters enhance the novel....  Healthy doses of romance, humor, and mystery make for nonstop entertainment."—Sheri Melnick, RT Bookclub

"[A] hilarious, yet serious, series of escapades.... Should you care to laugh while you read a murder mystery this would be a number one choice, as you rollick along toward a surprising end."—Rendezvous

"The first installment in what looks to be a winning series is up beat, funny, and totally, refreshingly original. The investigation is fascinating.... The heroine is an original and her deep solid friendships...ring true and feel real. Sheryl Anderson provides a fabulous opening act."—Midwest Book Review
