This was another great book by Donna Andrews, though perhaps not quite my favorite in the series.

Meg attends a fan convention “con” with her boyfriend Michael, part time actor and college Drama professor, for the cult TV show he’s on. While at the hotel, someone kills Tamalaine Wynncliffe-Jones, the show’s leading lady and executive producer, or the QB as the rest of the cast likes to call her (short for Queen Bi7c4, or as she likes to think Queen Bee). Of course, everyone is a suspect, and since Meg was the one to find the body, she uses her amateur sleuthing skills to dig up information and try to piece together the puzzle of who dunnit, since she feels the cops are continually looking in the wrong direction.

As usual, there’s a chuckle per chapter at least as Andrews seamlessly blends humor in with her mysteries, and you’re left guessing on the killer’s identity right up until the end. Though each book in this series can stand alone, reading the previous books gives you greater insight into each character. Highly recommended!
