About the Author

Joan Hess was the author of the Claire Malloy Mysteries and the Arly Hanks Mysteries, formally known as the Maggody Mysteries. She was a winner of the American Mystery Award and the Agatha Award (for which she was nominated five times), a member of Sisters in Crime, and a former president of the American Crime Writers League. She died in November 2017, four months after the publication of The Painted Queen.

C.J. Critt is a much-admired audiobook performer who has appeared on and Off-Broadway, in stand-up comedy, solo performance, and poetry slams. She is a Cable Ace winner and staff writer for Radio Disney.


Delightful...A heady mix a deliciously eccentric cast of supporting characters...Manipulating everything with a practiced hand, Hess concludes the story in a manner worthy of Hercule Poirot in the classic Death on the Nile.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Humor, quirky characters, a rich mother-daughter relationship, and the fresh setting all add to this satisfying addition to Hess' long-running series.

-- "Booklist"

An eccentric international cast of characters is professionally dramatized by C. J. Critt...In this story only a few characters are who they purport to be, so listeners will enjoy puzzling out not only whodunit but the real identity of each masquerader. Critt makes listeners believe she is personally involved in the story and ratchets up the intensity as people are kidnapped and Claire investigates. Together Critt's evocative narration and talent for accents create a convincing listening experience. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.

This enjoyable mystery in Hess' long-running Claire Malloy series takes the reader along for the ride as Claire honeymoons in Egypt...A splendidly wicked honeymoon.
