Simon and Schuster
There’s no one better equipped than the tart-tongued Maxine Taylor to hold court on the star-studded red carpet. But when Halsey Hamilton—young, fabulous, and fresh out of rehab—stumbles up to the mic, slurs a few cryptic words, and drops dead at the hem of Max’s stunning Michael Kors gown, Max must embark on an undercover twelve-step investigation and find Halsey’s killer in this smart, bracingly funny, and über-stylish mystery.

An enjoyable book, well-written by the two co-authors. The plot is fun and the investigation of the mystery takes the reader behind the scenes, as it were, of the entertainment industry. We see what the business will do to make money off an entertainer and we get to see the inside of a rehabilitation facility for the rich and famous -- all of it with humor, although not the Joan Rivers timing from her live performances.

You don't see the killer coming. And you will be impressed again by Joan Rivers' intelligence.

This was a Madeline Bean Culinary Mystery written by Joan Rivers and Jerrilyn Farmer. I was glad to see another Mad Bean mystery, but this one wasn't a good as the others
