Praise for the Agatha Award-nominated Murder Your Darlings:

“Sparkles with a wit to match the original Algonquin Round Table. I devoured it, chuckling all the way.”—Rhys Bowen
“Dorothy Parker—satirist, poet, and one of the great wits of the twentieth century—is the feisty heroine of this delightful mystery…I loved it!” —Suspense Magazine
“A brilliant first novel … Murphy has courageously ventured into [Dorothy] Parker’s world, and does quite a creditable job … And the mystery ain’t bad either.” —Mystery Scene

 Praise for You Might as Well Die:
“Pure entertainment with some very funny scenes…Well researched and well written…Murphy [is] a talented and intelligent writer, whose fictional characters remain true to the spirits of their originals… You Might as Well Die and its predecessor, Murder Your Darlings, are bonbons for fans of the 1920s.” —Gumshoe Review

“[A] charming 1920s period piece…With a strong sense of time and place, fans will enjoy this engaging Americana as the superb twisting investigation enhances a feeling of being part of the Round Table.” —Genre Go Round Reviews
