"A page-turner of a mystery.
A lovable sleuth. A real winner!"
"A Greek mythology twist and crackling insider insight into the fascinating soap opera world enhance this clever whodunit."
—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"Dead Ex is a wicked-smart, scalpel-sharp jewel of a book. Harley Jane Kozak brings an insider's eye to the denizens lurking in Hollywood, and skewers them with laugh-out-loud results. I loved it!"
"It's been much too long since Wollie Shelley's last appearance. But now she's back, and her newest adventure is just as entertaining as her first two....Quirky characters with witty dialog and snappy comebacks make the writing sparkle."
—Library Journal (Starred Review)
"Harley Jane Kozak has a voice like no other. Dead Ex is sassy, pert, and a mile a minute page turner filled with dry wit and a tongue-in-cheek look at Hollywood that could only be told through such an entertainer. Witty, unique, pure temptation and tons of fun. A seriously not to be missed book that stands all on its own. Fabulous!"
—Heather Graham, author of The Dead Room
"Harley Jane Kozak's Dead Ex is a delightful romp through the world of daytime TV. It's fast, sexy and genuinely funny. If there's a more likeable heroine than hers—she composes greeting cards while she's not solving crimes!—I haven't found her yet. Don't miss this story."
—T. Jefferson Parker, author of Storm Runners
