When zillionairess Zelda Zoransky throws a party, she means business. Assistant extraordinaire, Deidre “Foxtrot” Lancaster knows she’s in for a night when anything can―and will―happen. The evening’s festivities include a high-stakes game between two escape artists locked in a bitter rivalry.


The magic turns tragic when one of the escape artists ends up dead. This is no disappearing act―it’s murder. The suspects include a scientist with a 3D printer, a psychedelically-impaired rock star, and a serpent-tongued ghost with ties to the Garden of Eden. Now it’s up to Foxtrot, Tango, and Whiskey to figure out which guest committed the crime before they reach they end of this deadly game of Clue. How will this tail end?

Deidre “Foxtrot” Lancaster works for Zelda Zoransky, making sure the zillionaire’s guests are happy and things run smoothly. Sometimes, Foxtrot and her animals, Tango the cat, and Whisky, the shapeshifting phantom dog, have to do more, like solved a murder when a naked man, who is also rival escape artist Lockley Hades, is found dead in her latest contraption. Even more so, when Maxine’s assistant, Summer Coyne, is found dead in the refrigeration trailer parked in the parking lot of Zoransky’s mansion. Suspects are the guests and employees, plus two Thunderbirds, one of whom is Foxtrot’s boyfriend. The murdered Hades is a huge shape-shifting snake race that is enemies of the Thunderbirds. Deidre has her hands full.

With animals, both living and the dead, a mystery, and even some romance, this light paranormal mystery novel makes a good light beach read. Although I wonder how Foxtrot and her boyfriend got together or when he found out he was a Thunderbird. I did not need to read books 1-4 to understand and enjoy this book.

I gave PURRFECTLY DEAD: A Whiskey, Tango & Foxtrot Mystery 4 (mystery-solving ghost) sheep.

About the Author:
Dixie Lyle (Don DeBrandt) author of A Taste Fur Murder and To Die Fur from the Whiskey, Tango and Foxtrot Mysteries from St. Martin's Books, loves animals, mysteries, books, reading, words, bad puns (are there any other kind?) and once had a torrid summer romance with an entire library. Did I mention the books? Oh, and definitely doesn’t believe in the supernatural. Nope, not me. Hey, what was that sound? Where’s that spooky green glow coming from? Oh, hello, didn’t see you standing there in the corner, what with you being all see-through and everything. Want a cup of tea? Moan once for yes, twice for no.

Allegations that Dixie Lyle has a goofy sense of humor are entirely unfounded, and should be forwarded to the unfounded and unlost department.
