Overview

Deirdre "Foxtrot" Lancaster returns-with her otherworldly animal companions Whiskey and Tango-to shine a light on the dark side of fame...

Foxtrot has seen a lot of strange things as assistant to billionaire Zelda Zoransky at her wacky mansion. And that includes her telepathic cat Tango and ectoplasmic pooch Whiskey. So it's no surprise to find a horde of zombies lurching across the lawn-even if they are just actors in a horror movie that's filming on the mansion grounds. The special effects look pretty convincing. But all that fake blood doesn't fool Whiskey, who quickly sniffs out the truth: one of those corpses is real...

A DEADLY TAIL

Before you can say, "Lights, camera, murder," Foxtrot and her furry partners-in-crime-solving are caught up in the drama of who-killed-who...and why. With a crazy cast of characters including a neurotic director, a star-hungry diva-even with an appearance by Lassie's ghost-it's bound to have one hell of a twist ending. But first, Foxtrot and her supernatural sidekicks have to find a killer amongst them-before the whole case is a wrap...in the next "Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot "novel from Dixie Lyle.
"A clever new series that deftly blends cozy mystery with the paranormal...original and witty."-Ali Brandon, author of the Black Cat Bookshop mysteries

Lyle's quirky fourth Whiskey, Tango, and Foxtrot mystery (after 2015's Marked Fur Murder) follows Deirdre "Foxtrot" Lancaster; her reincarnated cat, Tango; and Whiskey, an ectoplasmic, shape-shifting dog (who, like Tango, is telepathic), as they observe the odd goings-on at the Victorian mansion of wealthy Zelda Zoransky, Foxtrot's employer. A zombie film is being shot at the estate; when an unidentifiable body turns up and an explosion injures one of the stars, Foxtrot decides it is up to her to solve both the murder and the bombing. The vast and paranormally energized pet cemetery on the grounds, known as the Great Crossroads, also sees its own suspicious activity. An unknown cat almost identical to Tango shows up, as well as some deceased "actors," which include the ghosts of Lassie and Roy Rogers's horse Trigger, but no one can figure out why the ghosts have appeared and why they're sticking around. As the trio piece the clues together, Lyle's use of puns keeps readers laughing, intrigued, and entertained right up until the director calls "Cut!" Agent: Lucienne Diver, Knight Agency. (Feb.)
