Where to buy it


Unbound from stiff-upper-lip stagnation by sudden widowhood, Adelaide Simcoe has yielded to her creative impulses Ñ and the pull of the volatile avant-garde fugu gallery. But when a performance art piece goes horribly wrong at the opening of Adelaide's first group show, she sets out to find who hated the gallery's mercurial co-founder enough to engineer such a horrible death.

Editorial Reviews

"An entertaining marriage of classic whodunnit and a spoof of world-class urban pretentiousness."

Books in Canada

"Kramer's eccentric ensemble of characters and his amphetamine-driven style steal the show... It's not often we get to see alternative art culture portrayed from the inside with such comfortable authority and easy humour."


"Ten Little Indians meets Valley of the Dolls."
