Summary

Local hero and problem solver for hire, Kira Brightwell finds herself on the run. Again.

Her running shoes pound the crowded sidewalk. A trickle of sweat slithers down her back in the California heat. And the damp remains of scrambled egg spatter the front of her favorite Nine Inch Nails T-shirt.

The egg stain earns her a few looks from passers-by. That and her breakneck pace.

Kira’s quarry remains two blocks ahead of her. She needs to haul ass if she wants to catch him.

...Because when a bad guy messes with her favorite shirt, the case gets personal.

A stand-alone misadventure story from the Kira Brightwell Quick Cases mystery series by the author of the Mackenzie Quinn mysteries, Jacquelyn Smith.

(This adventure takes place between the Kira Brightwell novels Black and Blue and Low Blow.)
Available since: 06/04/2020.

    The neighborhood of Oleander Court is the poster child for suburban bliss. The residents compare lawns beautified by hired help. They monitor home values. They toss perfect furniture because they wanted tapioca, not beige. But when a string of murders rips through the neighborhood, suspicions abound as new secrets come to light. And as more and more bodies are taken away, it becomes clear that the killer is strategically selecting each and every victim, picking off the shallowest, most wasteful of the lot in spectacular fashion and leaving everyone in the neighborhood to wonder Who’s next? While most of their neighbors scatter like well-dressed cockroaches, a small group of the neighborhood ladies team up to solve their local mystery and restore their once-peaceful lives. But is this ragtag collection of amateur sleuths truly a united front? With reputations, freedom, and personal sanity on the line, the ladies must unmask the killer...even if the killer is among them.

    Until the council steps in.

    A tribute to the cartoonist known as “Michelangelo with a sense of humor,” the creator of the beloved comic strip Cul de Sac (Pat Oliphant, editorial cartoonist). 
     
    Richard Thompson is renowned among cartoonists as an “artist’s” cartoonist. Little known to all but those close to him is the extent of his art talent. This is the book that will enlighten the rest of us and delight us with the sheer beauty of his work. 
     
    Divided into six sections, each beginning with an introductory conversation between Thompson and six well-known peers, including Bill Watterson, the book will present Thompson’s illustration work, caricatures, and his creation, Richard’s Poor Almanack. Each section is highly illustrated, many works in color, most of them large and printed one-to-a-page. The diversity of work will help cast a wider net, well beyond Cul de Sac fans. 
     
    “Even working wordlessly, from his wheelchair, Thompson was, and is, the supreme comedian. And that comic timing is among the embarrassment of rich gifts on beautiful display in The Art of Richard Thompson . . . one of the most anticipated art-retrospective books of the year.” —The Washington Post 
     
    “A new collection of art, interviews and commentaries . . . a more complete portrait of a multi-talented artist whose career ended far too early.” —IndieWire
