Fashion Victim (#1 in the Paige Tourneur Missing Husband Series) (A Paige Tourneur Mystery)

Fashion Victim is the first hilarious short novel in the Paige Tourneur Missing Husband Series by Lambda winner Greg (G.T.) Herren, author of the Chanse McLeod and Scotty Bradley series. (About 100 pages)

Devil Wears Prada meets Agatha Christie” –Megan Abbott, Edgar-winning author of Queenpin and Dare Me

To hear her buddy Chanse McLeod tell it, Paige Tourneur is rotund, cute as a button, a truly bad driver, and the best friend a gay P.I. could possibly have.

Now Paige gets a chance to tell it herself in her own witty and worldly-wise way. Please! Is that really her name? Seems like she has quite a past, and in Fashion Victim, it’s starting to haunt her.

Since his first novel, Greg Herren’s fans have been begging him to spin off their favorite character, the hard-drinking, hard-bitten, smart-mouthed red-headed reporter with the heart of gold and the unlikely name.

In her first solo outing, she’s long since left the Times-Picayune and has now landed a job at Crescent City Magazine, which sends her out to do a personality piece on bitchy fashion designer Marigny Mercereau. Only Marigny ends up dead fifteen minutes before her fifteen minutes of fame.

Twisting through Marigny’s creepy past, Paige is accompanied, as always, by best friend Chanse, her cop buddies Venus Casanova and Blaine Tujague, and (finally!) by the perfect man: her new boy friend, Blaine’s brother Ryan. So what happens when a woman meets the perfect man and her past comes calling?

Best-selling authors love Fashion Victim!

“A delicious, witty, deftly plotted mystery, Greg Herren’s Fashion Victim offers up a compulsively readable tale.” -Megan Abbott, Edgar-winning author of Queenpin and Dare Me

Witty, scandalous and dark-edged, Fashion Victim is a sparkling read.” –Lauren Henderson, author of the Tart Noir series.

“Set against the dark and vibrant backdrop of wondrous New Orleans, Herren’s wit and ingenuity make his mysteries a constant pleasure.” –Alex Marwood, The Wicked Girls (Penguin, 2013)

“Fashion Victim is a witty, engrossing slice of New Orleans life (and death). When a reporter sets out to profile a murdered designer, she must work around the post-Katrina reality of lost records and missing persons. Lucky for the reader, this means piecing together delicious bits of gossip and hints of hushed-up scandal. Wry observations about old money in the new New Orleans add extra sparkle to a plot full of lively characters and satisfying twists.” -–Lia Matera, author of the Willa Jansson and Laura Di Palma series

Fashion Victim is the first in a series of interconnected short novels in Paige’s Missing Husband Series. This spring: Watch for Dead Housewives of New Orleans!
