Gutsy ghostwriter Roxy Parker is back, and this time it's personal.

Someone is killing best-selling authors—a science-fiction writer has been found violently slashed with an ‘X’, a gardening guru bludgeoned with his own shears, and an erotic novelist poisoned by a juicy, red apple. All the evidence points firmly at Roxy's beloved agent, Oliver, but she's not convinced. With the help of seductive newcomer, crime reporter David Lone, Roxy must hunt down the killer before another author meets their final sentence... Little does Roxy know, a ghostwriter is next on the hit list!
