The early word is quite good on Denise Hamilton’s latest, Damage Control, a mystery about a spin doctor (do people still call them that?), Maggie Silver, who is hired to manage the PR crisis of Senator Henry Paxton, whose young lady aide has been offed, and who just so happens to be the father of Maggie’s estranged high school BFF. Estranged because something bad happened, a scandal-worthy tragedy that was buried on the beach—“surf noir,” Kirkus calls it. Kirkus also generally likes it, as does James Ellroy, and Publishers Weekly, and Library Journal, and Booklist, and some of our friends.
Denise will be at Vroman’s to discuss and sign this Wednesday. You may have read some of her other books.
