One of America's most beloved mystery writers, Carolyn G.
Hart, the Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Award-winning
author, returns to her original mystery
features Annie Darling, owner of the Death on Demand
Bookstore, and her husband, Max, with Mint Julep
Normally, Annie Laurence Darling would be
eagerly awaiting her trip to Head Island, where this year's
Dixie Book Festival is being held. But this year Annie has
agreed to be the author liaison to five authors honored with
the much-coveted Dixie Book Festival Medallions, and she
fears she is going to have her hands full juggling murderous
egos. What Annie doesn't count on is the untimely death of
ambitious Mint Julep Press publisher Kenneth Hazlitt.
Hazlitt arrives at the Festival peddling a proposal for
Song of the South, a trashy romanÂ Â clef that
details the indiscretions of some famous Southern authors at
a writers' conference--writers who more than resemble the
Dixie Festival Medallion winners. When Hazlitt drops dead
after drinking a hit of bourbon from his private stock, the
evidence points to Annie--the fatal glass is imprinted with
her fingerprints. As more and more evidence points her way,
Annie and Max must act fast to catch a wily killer...before
the police throw the book at Annie!
