A Molly Forrester Mystery (#3)
Sheryl J. Anderson

“This ‘Sleuth in the City’ stays on her toes as Anderson keeps the story lighthearted and fast-paced”—Publishers Weekly

“Elements of chick lit—the New York setting, the many brand names, lots of shopping, the emphasis on relationship problems—give the novel appeal beyond mystery fans. This third in a series is a quick, fun read.”—Booklist

It takes a special kind of best friend to realize that what you need most in your life is a murder investigation. Advice columnist Molly Forrester is still trying to break through as a journalist, and her best friends are completely—if a little ghoulishly—supportive. And when Manhattan advertising maverick Garth Henderson is murdered, she just might finally get that chance with this juicy assignment: an exclusive interview with Gwen Lincoln, the victim’s ex-wife and the prime suspect.

Was the murder a calculated business move, a crime of passion, or something more sinister? Is the killer lurking among the employees of the rival advertising firm Garth just purchased? Or among “The Harem,” his six beautiful, talented, and ruthlessly competitive creative directors? Or on the staff of fashion designer Emile Trebask, once Garth’s client and now Gwen’s business partner?

While racing to solve the ad world’s most notorious murder on deadline, Molly must also grapple with her manipulative editor, who always has her own angle on everything. To further complicate matters, one of her best friends may have either found true love or a relationship that will destroy her. And Molly’s own ex-boyfriend is circling the story, trying to get his own scoop—and get back into Molly’s good graces. Can Molly handle all these competing interests? Can her current boyfriend, NYPD homicide detective Kyle Edwards?

Never one to sidestep a challenge, in work or in love, Molly digs in her four-inch heels and presses forward. In Manhattan, you stand by your deal. Even if it kills you. Killer Deal is the dynamic third installment in Sheryl J. Anderson’s delightful Molly Forrester series.


“Reading to my oldest son at night, I often talk about the parts of the physical book. The dust jacket, the headband, and, yes, the endpapers. To me, publishers that care about books go to the extra effort to not just publish a book, but to physically build an attractive and quality book. Endpapers, in part, signify quality.”
