Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this sequel to Zelvin's 2008 debut, Death Will Get You Sober, the psychotherapist author fails to match the empathetic portrait of her recovering alcoholic hero, reluctant sleuth Bruce Kohler, with a captivating whodunit. New Yorker Kohler, who's been sober for almost 10 months, gets dragged into a murder investigation after drug dealer Frankie Iacone is stabbed to death in the apartment of an alcoholic, Luz, whose sponsor is Kohler's best friend's girlfriend. Since the police regard Luz as the obvious suspect, Kohler and his pals decide to try to find the real killer. Their amateurish inquiries into Iacone's drug dealing soon land them in hot water. Zelvin does a good job depicting Kohler's internal struggles, especially his ambivalence toward his ex-wife, Laura Dare, who alternates between coming on to him and blowing him off while subjecting him to late-night phone calls threatening suicide. Still, some readers might wish for more psychological depth in the Dare sections. (Oct.)

Review

"Zelvin's story is good and her dialogue sparkles, but what's best is how she's created characters who are both over the top, and completely believable. Just like real people!"--SJ Rozan, Edgar award winner, author of The Shanghai Moon

“A heartbreaker of a novel. Through seamless prose and her lead series protagonist Bruce Kohler, Elizabeth Zelvin exposes the internal and external demons of recovering addicts and recovering lovers.  Much more than a mere whodunit, Death Will Help You Leave Him is a whydunit and the “whys” will haunt you long after the book is read.”--Naomi Hirahara, Edgar Award-winning author of the Mas Arai mystery series

“A wonderful book—authentic, compassionate, and tough.”--Barbara D’Amato, two-time Anthony and Agatha awards winner

"With humor and heart, Zelvin writes about the challenges of sobriety and the beat of New York City with impressive accuracy.  Death Will Help You Leave Him is a terrific read."--Alafair Burke, author of Angel's Tip

“Elizabeth Zelvin proves with this second outing that she is not only here to stay but is indeed the sober version of the Thin Man series. No higher praise than that—ask Nora or Nick. A wondrous read.”--Ken Bruen, Shamus award winner and Edgar finalist

“Zelvin’s second effort is even more addictive than her first.  Death will help you leave him, but it won’t stop you from turning the pages.”--Reed Farrel Coleman, two-time Shamus award-winning author of Soul Patch
