Delilah Dickinson is finally looking forward to a nice, relaxing
time leading her literary travel agency’s latest tour at the
annual Tennessee Williams Literary Festival in New Orleans. After
all, a group of intelligent, low-key English professors can’t
be too much trouble, right?
Wrong, as it turns out. These academics don’t waste any
time showing their claws, especially when one of the professors
claims he can prove Williams didn’t even write CAT ON A HOT
TIN ROOF. But when the supposed real author --- Howard Burleson,
apparently once a very close friend of Tennessee’s --- turns
up dead, Delilah knows she’s got to get to the bottom of
things…even if the truth is as dirty as all them lies!
But, Lord --- the cast of suspects! Tamara Paige’s entire
academic career will be ruined if it turns out that Williams
wasn’t the actual playwright, and Delilah knows people have
killed for much less. And it appears that someone else in the tour
group is related to Burleson --- someone who surely wouldn’t
want the world to know that the supposed “author” based
the scathing play on his own proud Southern family.
So between finding a murderer and all the steamy affairs,
squabbling, and shouts of “Shut up! / No, you shut up!”
Delilah is beginning to feel like a certain cat stuck on a certain
roof. Plus there’s still a killer on the loose, and if she
doesn’t act quickly she just may find herself
starring…in her very own death scene.
