Izzy Spellman is 28, single and works for Spellman Investigations, a family-run private detective agency. She might have a chequered past littered with romantic mistakes - but at least she's good at her job. Invading people's privacy comes naturally. To the whole family. To be a Spellman is to snoop on a Spellman; tail a Spellman; dig up dirt on, blackmail and wiretap a Spellman. But when Izzy's parents hire her 14-year-old sister to discover the identity of her new boyfriend, Izzy decides she wants out. Before they'll let her go, her parents ask her to solve one last case - a 15-year-old, ice-cold, missing person, impossible-to-solve case. But when a disappearance occurs far closer to home, Izzy's Impossible Case becomes the most important of her life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Addictively entertaining." -- "Glamour"
"A fun and irreverent debut."-- "Entertainment Weekly"
"Truly the funniest book I've read in years."-- Susan Elizabeth Phillips
"Isabel Spellman...the love child of Dirty Harry and Harriet the Spy." -- "People"
"Irresistible.... Starts out funny and does not let up." -- "St. Louis Post-Dispatch"
"Fast-paced, irreverent, and very funny, "The Spellman Files" is like "Harriet the Spy" for grown-ups."-- Curtis Sittenfeld, author of "The Man of My Dreams" and "Prep"
"She's part Bridget Jones, part Columbo. Lisa Lutz's resilient P.I. Isabel Spellman emerges as a thoroughly unusual heroine in her delightful, droll debut novel." -- "USA Today"
"A spirited, funny debut...a rush of humor and chaos...casual, swift, and hip...A fresh story that works real issues through an offbeat premise."-- "Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
"Hilarious. My enjoyment of "The Spellman Files" was only slightly undercut by my irritation that I hadn't written it myself. The funniest book I've read in years!"-- Lauren Weisberger, author of "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Everyone Worth Knowing"
""The Spellman Files" is hilarious, outrageous, and hip. Izzy Spellman, P.I., is a total original, with a voice so fresh and real, you want more, more, more. At long last, we know what Nancy Drew would have been like had she come from a family of lovable crackpots. Lisa Lutz has created a delicious comedy with skill and truth. I loved it."-- Adriana Trigiani, author of "Lucia, Lucia" and "Big Stone Gap"
