Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of A Cat in the Stacks mystery series, a novel about a single mom, wits, grits, double shifts...and murder!

A Trailer Park Mystery (#2)
Kountry Kitchen Southern cooking recipes included!
Wanda Nell Culpepper's juggling a lot of plates--two full-time jobs and riding hard on her rambunctious kids. But it looks like she's just landed a blue-plate special when one of her fellow waitresses winds up dead.

Fayette's death is no real surprise: Wanda knows she had the temper and morals of snake, along with very expensive taste in powerful men. She was also stepping out with Melvin Arbuckle, Wanda Nell's true-blue boss, so he's the one who's taking the heat. Still, something in the kitchen doesn't smell right...

Wanda Nell may be too busy to tackle another mystery, but no way will she let Melvin fry!

"Wanda Nell and her shotgun-toting buddy Mayrene are wonderful people to get to know. A down-home treat!" – #1 New York Times bestseller, Charlaine Harris

"FLAMINGO FATALE is the Southern cozy at its best." – Lane Wright, revewingtheevidence.com

"As down-home and appealing as fried green tomatoes, grits, and sweet tea. Heroine Wanda Nell Culpepper is a steel magnolia to cherish." – Carolyn Hart

About the Author

Miranda James is the pseudonym of Dean James, a seventh-generation Mississippian recently returned home after over thirty years in Texas. A mystery fan since the age of ten, he wrote his first novel at the ripe old age of twelve. The only copy of The Mystery of the Willow Key vanished years ago, but since it was highly derivative of the Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden mystery series, that’s probably a good thing.

Currently a librarian, Dean has published articles on topics in library science, the history of science/medicine, and mystery fiction. His first book, with fellow librarian Jean Swanson, was By a Woman’s Hand and won an Agatha Award. Dean and Jean collaborated on Killer Books and The Dick Francis Companion. In all he has co-authored or co-edited six works of mystery reference and one short story anthology.

He has published more than eighteen novels, writing under his own name, Jimmie Ruth Evans, and as Honor Hartman. He’s best known as Miranda James, for his New York Times bestselling Cat in the Stacks series, which features a librarian, Charlie Harris and his charming, partner-in-crime solving cat, Diesel. The books include Murder Past Due, Classified as Murder, File M for Murder, Out of Circulation, The Silence of the Library, Arsenic and Old Books, No Cats Allowed, Twelve Angry Librarians and the upcoming Claws for Concern.

Dean lives with two young cats, thousands of books, and thinks frequently about killing people – but only in the pages of fiction.
