9780385342704: Hotel No Tell: A Novel (The Zephyr Books)

The smart and sassy detective Zephyr Zuckerman is now armed and undercover in a Greenwich Village hotel where mysteries—from garbage-grabbing guests to the reservation system—lurk around every corner.
 

Now working as a junior detective with the New York City Special Investigations Commission, Zephyr’s gone incognito as a concierge to find out who laundered a hundred grand off the hotel books—and why. But the discovery of a prone, flush-faced guest gasping for air in room 502 only hints at the sinister goings-on inside this funky establishment. While the rapid response of the fire department leads to a sweaty date with a smooth-talking, rock-climbing rescue worker, Zephyr finds herself even more hot and bothered by an attempted murder on her watch. Could the smart-mouthed Japanese yenta across the hall know more than she’s telling? How are cryptic phone calls from a mysterious corporation linked to the victim in 502?

Under pressure and overwhelmed, Zephyr soon finds that a concierge cover is no protection in a place where crime, like the city itself, never sleeps.

From the Author:

I purposely ended Super in the City -- the first in the Zephyr Zuckerman series -- with a natural direction for a sequel, though at the time I really didn't know much more than that I might draw on my experience - fifteen years ago - working for a New York City law enforcement agency.One of my favorite things about writing novels is getting to introduce dozens of quirky characters, giving quick cameos and thumbnail sketches. Most people are endlessly fascinating to me (even the dull ones! why are they so dull?), and on a New York City street, doubly so. There are these vibrant life forms everywhere you turn just begging to be used somewhere.So I thought, hey, an investigation agency would be a great setting for introducing lots of colorful characters - criminals, witnesses, law enforcement - but, oh right, we have ten different versions of Law and Order. Not original. But more than that, I realized I didn't want Zephyr or me stuck in an office. So I thought, well where else are there lots of different characters passing through?Hotels. Everyone's a little intrigued by hotel energy - there's something inherently exciting about them. The transience, the potential for secrets, identities left at home in favor of temporary, other identities. There's a glamour in even the plainest place, and a chemistry that's shifting daily. (Never mind that as a native, I've never spent a night in a New York City hotel.)Hope you enjoy your reunion with Zephyr as much as I did!
