"An impossible-to-put-down Harvey Wallbanger of a mystery. With a smart, funny protagonist who's learning to own her power as a woman, Send in the Clowns is one boss read." - newsie Ellen Byron, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of Plantation Shudders and Body on the Bayou

Haunted houses are scary enough without knife-wielding clowns. Especially murderous knife-wielding clowns.

So thinks Ellison Russell, single mother, artist, and reluctant sleuth. Now death wears a red nose and Ellison is up to the blood-stained collar of her new trench coat in costumes, caffeine, and possible killers.

Who stabbed Brooks Harney? And why? Money? Jealousy? Drugs? With Mother meddling, her father furious, and her date dragged downtown for questioning, turns out Ellison's only confidante is Mr. Coffee.

Excerpt from Date with a Book review:

"My first book in this series, even though it's book #4. Immediately I was hooked, and maybe a little freaked out with the clowns, but also not feeling like I had started in the middle of the story. I am amazed when authors can write a stand alone, but part of a series, book. You are aware that you're missing parts of back story, but nothing of the main story. I'm excited to go back and catch up." Read full Review

Julie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders set in 1970s Kansas City, and her Bayou romances set in 1900s New Orleans. She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean–and she’s got an active imagination. Truth is–she’s an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.

Novenber 2 - Ellison Russell interview.

November 7 - "Send in the Clowns is a five-star read. Clever and, at times, comical, with strikingly defined characters who practically walk off the pages into reality. Reading Julie Mulhern feels more like watching a movie, so vividly does she craft a scene. An excellent entry in the Country Club Murders series – one that has left this reader clamoring for more."--Newsie Girl With Book Lungs review

Stephen Colbert offers Stephen Sondheim an explanation of where the clowns are.
