A BookPage Most Anticipated Mystery & Suspense book of 2022!

Last Call at the Nightingale is a sexy, fun romp through the Jazz Age. With a well-plotted mystery and applause-worthy female characters, readers will soak up this spellbinding read.--Michelle Gable, New York Times bestselling author of A Paris Apartment and The Bookseller's Secret

This sharply paced, queer murder mystery, set in 1920s New York City, offers equal amounts of atmosphere, danger, and crime-solving. Independent-minded and sometimes foolishly fearless, Vivian is a multi-faceted protagonist who immerses readers into this stunning tale. Schellman is at the top of her craft and delivers a murder mystery with clever twists and turns and memorable personalities.--Denny S. Bryce, Bestselling Author of Wild Women and the Blues

Katharine Schellman deftly evokes one of my favorite eras, the Jazz Age of 1920's Manhattan. Complete with speakeasies, mobsters, and an unflappable flapper as its heroine, this is a book that should be savored with a glass of bootleg gin in one hand and a 78 of Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five on the gramophone.--Allison Montclair, author of The Right Sort of Man

Secrets and suspects abound as Vivian Kelly finds herself ensnared in a murder mystery at The Nightingale, a New York speakeasy, in this exciting and evocative series debut. Brimming with Jazz Age atmosphere, suspense, and a cast of engaging characters, Last Call at the Nightingale wonderfully captures both the decadence and the struggles of the Roaring Twenties, and Vivian is smart and gutsy, a character you'll root for. I'm already looking forward to her next adventure!--Ashley Weaver, author of the Amory Ames and Electra McDonnell series

Original, bold, and sexy, Katharine Schellman's Jazz Age New York isn't like anything you've read before. Beautifully paced, packed with evocative detail, this delicious mystery takes you to the Nightingale, a club where people can be who they really are, but everyone has secrets. Every character is memorable, from the sharp, vivacious heroine Vivian Kelly to the mysterious and alluring Honor Huxley. Dirty doings among New York's elite, family drama, and more than one love story make for a fantastic start to a great new series.--Mariah Fredericks, author of the Jane Prescott series
