"Pick the Next Character" Contest

In addition to Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley and the usual cast of characters who sat around the Algonquin Round Table every day, many other famous people dropped by for lunch once in a while. William Faulkner was a special guest in MURDER YOUR DARLINGS. Harry Houdini appears in YOU MIGHT AS WELL DIE. And Arthur Conan Doyle will be the special guest in the third book in the series, A FRIENDLY GAME OF MURDER (2012).

The next special guest—as chosen by you, the readers!—will appear in the fourth book. (Contest is closed, but you can still vote.) Enter your e-mail address below to sign up for the occasional newsletter. (We won’t share your e-mail with anyone!)
