Jane O’Connor, New York Times bestselling author, editor, and creator of the Fancy Nancy books for children presents Almost True Confessions, a mystery for grown-ups starring Miranda "Rannie" Bookman whom we met in Dangerous Admissions.

What could be more fun for a freelance copyeditor than a juicy exposé about one of Manhattan’s most beloved society doyennes?

But when Rannie arrives at the east side apartment of reclusive author Ret Sullivan, she finds more than the final draft of the manuscript waiting for her: tied to the bed and strangled with an Hermès scarf is Ret’s half-naked body.

Was this merely a case of rough sex that got a little too rough, as the police believe? Or was Ret murdered because someone didn’t want her to meet her deadline?

Once again, the heroine of Jane O’Connor’s Dangerous Admissions proves that her mind is just as sharp as her blue  pencils in Almost True Confessions: Closet Sleuth Spills All, a mystery full of sly humor and romance.
