Overview

"A very clever wordsmith."
--New York Times Book Review

"Ms. Arsenault...reveals strange truths beneath everyday surfaces."
--Wall Street Journal

Emily Arsenault's first two novels, Broken Teaglass ("a beautifully written, engaging mystery" --Dorothy Allison) and In Search of the Rose Notes, received resounding critical acclaim. With her third, Miss Me When I'm Gone, she firmly re-establishes her standing among Laura Lippman, Tana French, Jennifer McMahon, Megan Abbot, and the other major players in the literary mystery game. Arsenault enthralls with this story of what ensues in the shocking aftermath of the sudden, violent death of the successful author of a "honky-tonk Eat, Pray, Love," when an old college friend of the murdered woman comes across an unpublished manuscript--one which could possibly lead to the writer's killer. A former lexicographer, English teacher, children's librarian, and Peace Corps volunteer, Emily Arsenault has found her true calling as an author of twisting, intelligent, emotional, and exceptionally compelling mystery fiction.

Arsenault (The Broken Teaglass) offers a thoughtful reflection on country music, secrets, and relationships with her outstanding third mystery. Pregnant Jamie Madden, recently demoted “from health reporter to part-time night copy editor” at her budget-strapped newspaper, has been named the literary executor for her author friend, Gretchen Waters, who died from a fall down some stairs after giving a reading at a New Hampshire public library. Gretchen made her name with the bestselling Tammyland, a combination autobiography and study of the lives of country music stars such as Tammy Wynette, but she left behind an unfinished work with a darker tone. As Jamie looks into the manuscript, she finds information on the violent death of Gretchen’s biological mother, and wonders whether the author’s research into the past robbed her of a future. Arsenault’s lyrical, moving prose serves to make this more than just a compelling whodunit. (Aug.)
