Author Info
Linda Barnes
Linda Barnes first received critical praise in 1986, when she introduced her most popular crime solver, Carlotta Carlyle. A tall, guitar-playing, taxi-driving ex-cop and private investigator, Carlyle first appeared in a short story called "Bad Penny". Carlyle, like many of Barnes's characters, is known for her vivacious sense of humor and her wry, ironic outlook on life. Barnes graduated from Boston University with a B.F.A., taught theater in Massachusetts from 1971 to 1978, and married computer expert Richard Barnes. Among many awards she has received throughout her career, she won an Anthony Award for best short stories, and an American Mystery Award for best private eye novel.
From the Publisher
Annotation Career taxi driver, amateur volleyball player, and sometimes sleuth Carlotta Carlyle has her work cut out for her when an elderly client whose protests against her landlord have caused controversy is found dead in her apartment. The plot thickens when Carlotta's volleyball teammate Gwen is pegged for the killer and a big-time music executive claiming he is the victim's stepgrandson hires Carlotta to sift through the dead woman's papers. Carlotta must come up with a game plan before the killer spikes again.
Editors Note Carlotta Carlyle's newest case begins when the redheaded private detective helps burglar proof the apartment of an old woman, who is promptly murdered, plunging Carlotta into a murderous maelstrom of real-estate tycoons and entertainment big-shots. Reprint.
