LUSH LIFE Artie Deemer and his celebrity dog Jellyroll, the heroes of Dallas Murphy's triumphant, Edgar Award nominated mystery Lover Man, are back in a rollicking sequel. "A wild, winsome new adventure...sparkling from the very first pitch." Kirkus Reviews Artie falls hard for sexy pool player Crystal Spivey, whose sleazy ex-husband Trammel Weems abruptly topples off his fishing boat and disappears, along with $14 million of his company's assets. Soon Artie and Crystal find themselves at the center of a deadly caper involving crooked corporations, CIA spooks, and Mafia bankers. They'll be lucky if their romance can survive...if they aren't killed first. "Murphy joins the ranks of authors like Carl Hiaasen and Donald Westlake, writers who can roll suspense and comedy into the same package and leave you wanting more." Albuquerque Journal "Lively entertainment cover to cover....Murphy delivers crisp, clear prose, and original comedy at the hair-raising pace of a Domino's delivery car." Tulsa World.
