Obituary writer Nellie Bly finds herself at the center of attention when the upstanding citizens of a posh Southern California beach town start turning up dead. Greed, betrayal, vengeance, gangsters and old Hollywood glamour make for great copy—if Nellie can stay alive long enough to meet her deadline.
“[A] witty debut . . . Brisk pacing and a cavalcade of colorful characters keep the action on a swift path to its literally wild denouement. Hopefully, Nellie will be back soon.” —Publishers Weekly
“Nellie Bly and the other characters in Pat Broderick's wonderful Dead on My Feet jump off the page and into your head. Haven't read this debut novel yet? Well, as Nellie's blustery landlord Dame Cavendish might say, do try to keep up, dear.” —John Cannon, editor at jcannonbooks.com
