From Publishers Weekly

This semi-supernatural mystery, an uneven work that doesn't live up to its best moments, marks the return of L.A. literary agent Charlie Green. On a day that begins with highway gridlock, a missed appointment and an argument with her acid-tongued teenage daughter, Libby, Charlie also faces the mysterious disappearance of waspish office secretary Gloria Tuschman. Gloria is discovered sprawled out in nearby bushes--dead. Charlie, who tested her sleuthing skills in Murder at Moot Point , is brought in on the case by Gloria herself, whose voice seems to call from the Great Beyond: "Charlie, I'm in the trash can. Help me." Lt. David Dalrymple of the Beverly Hills PD also hopes for her help while Charlie learns that several co-workers have reason to rejoice in Gloria's death. Then, visiting Montana author Mary Ann Leffler also vanishes, leaving Charlie to hunt for more clues in this world and the next. Millhiser is perhaps too successful at making the work of a Hollywood literary agent seem mundane; as for other realms, those unearthly messages, rather than being portentous, are just transparent plot-expediting gimmicks.

From Library Journal

Charlie Greene, the L.A. literary agent who bumbled into a murder investigation in Murder at Moot Point ( LJ 10/1/92), tries once again to outwit police. When fellow workers become suspects in the murder of their universally unloved office receptionist, no one has an ironclad alibi, so Greene balances her own hectic schedule, an unpredictable teenager, and a tenacious homicide detective in order to help them out. Before she discovers the receptionist's "hold" on the murderer, further murder and mayhem occur. Humorous, inviting, and Hollywood hectic, this book is written in crisp, likable prose.

Format: Paperback
I've finished almost every book I've ever started reading, although every few years there's one that's so tedious that I can't make it through. I may hate `em, but I finish `em. I never imagined I'd not be able to finish a Marlys Millhiser book. I loved her earlier books and had been looking for more by her for years. This one is both boring and irritating, and I just can't continue with it. So far there's a plethora of characters without any personality who are gleeful that the only character with any personality has been murdered, and so far there's nothing to indicate why we're expected to hate the dead victim and sympathize with the brain-dead boors. I got to the part where the protagonist is disappointed that people are discussing the murder rather than her latest business deal, and where she casually plans on getting rid of her daughter's pet cat. (I can only suppose it had too much personality.) I don't know how it all turns out, only that I know as much about Charlie Greene as I can hack.

This was a good book...very entertaining. This series amazes me somewhat because I lived in Long Beach where Charlie lives and in L.A. a few years ago, and never met any characters quite like she has in her stories. I must have led a sheltered life. Or Marlys exaggerates somewhat. Whatever! This book kept my attention til the end.

Charlie Greene has perhaps the most annoying daughter in the mystery field. And I like her because she obviously loves this annoying brat. An interesting setting, good characters, humor, a murder and a soupcon of the paranormal. It doesn't get much better than this
