Over My Dead Body

Published by: Headline

Judges’ Comments
Dr. Miriam Price is dead. Murdered, to be precise. But her killer staged the scene so her death looks set to be ruled an overdose, leaving her just a few days to expose her killer so she isn’t left in Limbo for the next fifty years. Sarcastic and scathing, Miriam and her curmudgeonly nemesis, Winnie team up to figure out exactly what happened. Evans proves herself a master storyteller in this compulsively snort-out-loud cosy crime. What sets it apart is the humanity between the lines of this twisty tale. Caustic and cute, this is comedy gold that’s full of heart (and heartache).
