Kay Powell, theatrical agent to non-human animals, is babysitting - that is, birdsitting - her client, a parrot named Barney, on the set of his new TV show, Dead City. When the show's charismatic star is shot in his trailer between scenes, the only eyewitness to the crime is - you guessed it - Barney. And even though Kay keeps explaining that even a "talking" parrot doesn't actually converse with people, the investigators insist on interrogating the bird for information he clearly can't communicate. Suspects accumulate like birdseed, and before long it's clear the killer believes Barney might actually be able to supply useful evidence. Even Barney can't fly away from this one.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A second sharp outing for Copperman's pitch-perfect heroine."--Kirkus Reviews

"Charming...animal lovers and cozy readers should savor this romp through the world of animal acting and television production."--Publishers Weekly

"Funny cozy mystery with a cover I'm in love with."--Book Riot

Praise for Dog Dish of Doom

"Admirers of old comedy sketches and anyone looking for a laugh-out-loud mystery should pick up this series launch by Copperman."--Library Journal (starred)

"Readers will root for Kay to be more than pals with Sam Gibson, proprietor of Cool Beans coffee house--and, of course, to keep Bruno as more than a client. [Filled with] resilient, warm, funny supporting players."--Publishers Weekly

"The wry, feisty heroine is a welcome addition to Copperman's troupe."--Kirkus Review

"Well-drawn characters, including a heroine who talks directly to the reader, and effectively framed with details of the theater enhance this humorous cozy."--Booklist

"E.J. Copperman - I've said this before, and I'll say it again - is one of the best cozy writers working at the moment... Great first in a series, and I'm looking forward to more."--Aunt Agatha's

"The author gives Kay a voice that is a believable mixture of exasperation and vulnerability, and her attitude towards show business is equal parts fondness and despair... Copperman has the makings of a successful series, one that could break out and find a wider audience than just "cozy" readers."--Criminal Element

"Kay's narrative voice is very good, and her parents are delightful (El has a great response early on when Kay says "Mom, I don't think you're getting exactly what I'm risking here;"Jay is constantly playing a part). This is probably going to get tagged as a "cozy," and maybe it is. But it's also pretty tough underneath. I think you'll enjoy this installment; I know I'm already looking forward to #2."--Words & Music

"Readers can always count on getting a good mystery, great characters, and a lot of laughs as they turn the pages. The only disappointment is in finding out how it ends, is that you're at the end of the book. Get them all and binge read. It will improve any bad day and make good days even better."--Kings River Life Magazine
