“A lightning-paced, high-concept thriller . . . Astonishingly inventive, The Cutting Room stands out as one of the best mysteries of the year!”
—TESS GERRITSEN, author of The Sinner
"In 1984, writing under the pseudonym Margaret Tracy, Klavan won the Edgar Award for Best Paperback Original for Mrs. White. Now–two decades later and best known as the librettist for the Obie Award-winning musical Bed and Sofa–Klavan has produced this wry, whimsically romantic crime novel. Brimming with engaging tidbits of movie trivia, it is narrated in the self-effacing voice of its bumbling, endearing hero, Roy Milano, publisher of Trivial Man, a cultish movie trivia newsletter sold through bookstores and video outlets around the Big Apple. . . This tongue-in-cheek whodunit marks the long overdue second coming of a gifted novelist."
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A great bit of escapism for film and mystery buffs alike. . . Klavan’s touch is playful and deft."
