2 in 1: Good mystery & Literary NYC scene
No clue as I am mostly blind and can no longer read books in print format.
The launch party where the author arrives carried by four young men comes to mind. Also the slush pile meeting at the agency was brilliantly written. I can't really pick one scene as many stand out in my memory.
Jo, obviously. Tommy was probably second.
Humor and mystery set in literary Manhattan. However, this is an irrelevant question for a book review, is it not?
I would be most pleased to discover that Barbara Rogan will return with more mysteries involving the characters of this book. I so enjoyed the read. It is unusual to discover an American author who can write a cozy style mystery with wit and humor. Ms. Rogan accomplishes both.

The Story is decent but the reader...
