About this item

Ellie Haskell, the beloved heroine of The Thin Woman, is stuck on a reality TV set. And, as the "thoroughly entertaining series" (Cosmopolitan) from Agatha Award nominee Dorothy Cannell continues, this cast is dying for their fifteen minutes. A dark foggy night. A big spooky mansion. And a reality TV dating show? It's not exactly the scene Ellie Haskell expects to find while stranded near the Yorkshire moors with her husband, Ben, and their plucky housekeeper, Mrs. Malloy - who promptly signs up as a contestant when she learns that the bachelorettes are competing for the affections of Lord Belfry himself. Then again, maybe Ellie shouldn't be so surprised. Some women would kill to marry a lord . . . perhaps literally. Even before the shooting starts, one would-be bride is knocked out of the game by a fatal car wreck.
