"Robin Hudson's life is getting complicated. Her estranged husband's girlfriend is not only younger, prettier, and more successful - she's pregnant. Robin's job - on the trash crew for the prestigious All News Network - is rocky, too. She can't seem to keep from making on-the-air faux pas. Now her loathsome boss wants her to investigate a sperm bank. Her elderly next door neighbor vilifies her and assaults her, under the delusion that she is a call girl. A blackmailer tries to shake her down. And her disdainful cat, Louise Bryant, refuses to eat unless Robin stir fries her food. Just a normal day for a single, urban professional female." "Then this spunky and appealing but "slightly rumpled, third string reporter in Rita Hayworth's body" finds herself accused of murder. She thinks her apartment may have been burglarized because it seems tidier than when she left it. Robin wants to trust charming supervising producer Eric Slansky but is afraid that the super-handsome, super-amorous Super Prod may be the murderer." "This is a fast-paced, funny mystery featuring a sleuth who is a television newswoman."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Winner of the Crime Writers of Canada's Arthur Ellis Award for best first mystery novel: Called "flat-out funny" and "audacious" by Publishers Weekly, this is the first novel in Sparkle Hayter's comic mystery series featuring sexy, irreverent TV reporter and amateur sleuth Robin Hudson
Meet Robin Hudson. Dumped by her husband, she's been demoted to third-string reporter at New York's All News Network. Her downstairs neighbor thinks she's a hooker. Louise Bryant, her finicky cat, refuses to chow down on anything but stir-fry. Now Robin's being blackmailed by a late-night caller who knows her childhood nickname and other personal stuff, like whom she gave her virginity to. What could be worse?
Being the prime suspect in the bludgeoning death of her mystery caller—that's what. In life, he was a PI who had the skinny on everyone. Now, while Robin is undercover investigating a suspicious sperm bank, she must also find the killer and clear her name. In her downtime, she's amusing herself with her hot new boy toy, who may not be Mr. Right but could be Mr. Close Enough. When someone else is murdered, Robin races to break the story before she makes headlines again—as the next victim.
The Robin Hudson Mystery series is a winner of the Sherlock Award for Best Comic Detective.
