"With a cast of characters that only a Hamptons insider could create and more curves than Accabonac Road, Randye Lordon's murderous tale will pull you in like the rip current off Sagg Main Beach."
- Helen A. Harrison, author of the Art of Murder mysteries
As the premiere concierge for the rich and famous in an exclusive Hamptons enclave, Mary Moody can arrange any event and solve any problem. But when a body is found dismembered on the beach, Mary is faced with a mystery outside her range of expertise: murder. As the bodies pile up, Mary can't help but wonder if she will be next. SHE'S DEAD, WHO CARES? will grab you from the start and keep you guessing. Lordon has created a perfectly pitched Whodunit that exposes the underbelly of one of the world's poshest playgrounds.

Randye Lordon. Gordian Knot, $19.99 trade paper (330p) ISBN 978-1- 63789-852-9 This entertaining series launch from Lordon (the Sydney Sloane mysteries) introduces Mary Moody, a “concierge to the rich and the richer” of the Hamptons. Mary uses her law degree, vast network of acquaintances, and sterling organizational skills to find creative solutions for her clients’ problems, such as arranging a clam bake for the Spielbergs (yes, those Spielbergs), snagging Celine Dion to perform on a yacht for a wedding, and breaking up a happy crowd of drunken revelers and getting their party venue neat and tidy before the unsuspecting homeowner’s return. When Corliss Blines, a powerful art rep and gallery owner whose life is based on the principle, “Screw others before they screw you,” disappears, the only person who seems to care is her renowned filmmaker friend, Diane Ajam, who hires Mary to find Corliss. Parts of the missing woman’s body turn up in the dunes, and other murders follow, with Mary becoming a target for the killer. Distinctive characters (both human and canine) match the twisty plot. Mary’s comic takes on her rich clients will leave readers eager for more. Agent: Henry Morrison, Trident Media. (Feb.) DETAILSshare
