Publisher's Summary

Ella Broden is living a double life.
By day, Ella works as a buttoned-up attorney on some of the city's most grueling cases. By night, she pursues her passion for singing in the darkest clubs of Manhattan.
No one knows her secret, not even Charlotte, the younger sister she practically raised. But it seems she's not the only one in the family with something to hide. When Charlotte announces she's sold her first novel, Ella couldn't be more thrilled...until she gets a call that her sister's gone missing.
Ella starts investigating with the help of Detective Gabriel Velasquez, an old flame in the NYPD, and what she finds is shocking. If art imitates life, then her sister's novel may contain details of her real-life affairs. And any one of her lovers could be involved in her disappearance.
Desperate to bring Charlotte home, Ella works through her list of suspects, matching fictitious characters with flesh-and-blood men. But will it be too late to save the sister she only thought she knew?

Oddly Mixed Up Writing Hurts Book

The first half or so of 'Dead Certain' grabbed me. But then Adam Mitzner poked his POV into other people's heads and I reeeeely wish he hadn't. Perhaps if his deadline wasn't so pressing, or an urge to show-boat some writing pyrotechnics didn't divert his good sense... Well maybe this could have continued its journey toward 5 stardom. Instead the suspense went flaccid. And for some reason the editors allowed him to insert a totally mystical chapter written in the POV of a ghost!

Can't recommend this thing even though Mitzner's written some fine books. And even though Erin Bennett does a fine job of trying to save all of this scrambled stuff.

Save your credit for something better, maybe by Mitzner.
