"ANOTHER FUNNY PHILLY PUZZLER . . . Notable for how comfortably it occupies the space between cozy and city-grit crime fiction."
When a reveling Pierrot is shot dead at the Mummers' Parade in Philadelphia, schoolteacher Amanda Pepper is first just a horrified spectator. But then the prime suspect--her friend and fellow teacher at Philly Prep--falsely claims to have been with her at the time of the murder. Amanda can no longer stay on the sidelines, as she plunges into the Mummers' tight-knit world, where no one seems willing to help her find a dangerous killer. . . .
"Entertaining . . . A fun read."

Amanda Pepper, the Philadelphia English teacher is a crack-up . . . always getting caught up in a crime. Whether she is in the classroom, on vacation, or just hanging out at home, she always finds time to solve a mystery. I like Roberts's characters (Amanda herself, her boyfriend C.K., her mother, and her friend Sasha) so much that I talked a local wholesale buyer into purchasing and distributing the Amanda Pepper series to a major retail store in Southern California. The sales results were great!
