"A fabulously fun and fashionable new series! Ellen Byerrum tailors her debut mystery with a sharp murder plot, entertaining fashion commentary, and gutsy characters. I ll look forward to the next installment with reporter Lacey Smithsonian covering style and mayhem in Washington D.C." Nancy J. Cohen, Author of the Bad Hair Day Mysteries"Lacey Smithsonian skewers Washington with style in this new mystery series. Killer Hair is a shear delight." Elaine Viets, Author of Shop Till You Drop Cut-wrong hair mingles with cutthroat Washington, DC, in Ellen Byerrum s rippling debut. Peppered with girlfriends you d love to have, smoldering romance you can t resist, and Beltway insider insights you ve got to read (Pentagon pheromone rays?), Killer Hair adds a crazy twist to the concept of capital murder. Bubbles may have to visit. Sarah Strohmeyer, Agatha Award-winning author of Bubbles Ablaze Lacey Smithsonian is no fashionista she s a 40s starlet trapped in style-free DC, with a feminist agenda, a cadre of delightfully insane friends, and a knack for stumbling on corpses. Funny, fast and frighteningly accurate. Lacey slays and sashays thru Washington politics, scandal, and Fourth Estate slime, while uncovering whodunnit, and dunnit and dunnit again. Chloe Green, author of the Dallas O Connor fashion mysteries"
