Editorial Reviews


"Carrie is a clever, slightly neurotic heroine whose personal life is in disarray--the kind of heroine Susan Isaacs might put in a mystery....Fortunately, the detective on the case, Ted Brodsky, finds Carrie's inept assistance charming and together the two make a fine team."
- Publishers Weekly

"Nancy Tesler is author of one of the most original and brilliant series featuring an amateur female detective..."Pink Balloons and Other Deadly Things" is surely one of the best first novels to feature a female detective in recent years...This is a novel of real quality. Scarcely anywhere in the whole genre of female detective fiction will you find a better depiction of the emotion of jealousy, the breakup of a marriage, and the tentative growth of new affection. Into the familiar format Nancy injects powerfully felt emotion and characters who are true to life. Best of all, underlying the serious account of Carrie's troubles is a deep humor--a sense of cosmic irony which ultimately gives the novel its meaning... in a packed and competitive field, it is way out front."                                                    
- Female

From the Publisher

Carrie Carlin is trying to juggle single life in the suburbs, two frisky children, and a full-time career. Through it all she's got to stand by while her estranged husband flaunts his new, young, gorgeous fiancee, Erica. When Erica turns up dead, Carrie--the jealous ex-wife-- becomes a prime suspect. But with the help of the fine Detective Ted Brodsky, Carrie will uncover the truth--and prevail!
