Deliberate Cruelty: Truman Capote, the Millionaire's Wife, and the Murder of the Century by Roseanne Montillo
I'll have to create a Goodreads shelf labeled "Gossip" for this one. It's what Truman was known for, after all. I confess to a fascination with this man that's lasted most of my life. His writing was second to none. What might he have done in his last years if he'd been sober?

Coffee mugs with a map drawn by the most-talented Rhys Davies will be part of the promotion for the upcoming Max Tudor #8 from Hachette/Little Brown.
Here's a sample of the artwork Rhys did for the first Max Tudor, WICKED AUTUMN. Isn't it stunning?
The Twist of a Knife by Anthony Horowitz
I just got notice my eBook copy is available to me from my local library. Loved the other books and expect to love this one, too.
A word about library lending: People think authors don't get paid for a library borrow, and I've had readers apologize to me for getting my books from their local. But we DO get paid - and depending on the publisher, it can be a very nice side revenue stream for us.
So don't hesitate. Your favorite authors will get compensated! You may have to wait on the super popular books but you can generally find whatever you want at your library - or ask them to order it.

Mystery maven Aunt Agatha has published her 2022 favorites:
You wouldn't know it to look at me, but I love fashion, the crazier the better. I've never seen gloves like this and since they're not too crazy, I might have the nerve to wear them at some holiday party or other. From Tatler's upcoming January issue. By the way, early wishing you the merriest of holidays.
