About the Author:

Lisa Lutz is the author of The Spellman Files, a New York Times best-seller; Curse of the Spellmans, a national best-seller and nominee for both the Macavity and Edgar? Awards for Best Novel of 2008; and the critically acclaimed Revenge of the Spellmans. Although she attended UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, the University of Leeds in England, and San Francisco State University, she still does not have a bachelor's degree. Lisa spent most of the 1990s hopping through a string of low-paying odd jobs while writing and rewriting the screenplay Plan B, a mob comedy. After the film was made in 2000, she vowed she would never write another screenplay. A motion picture adaptation of The Spellman Files is in development with Paramount Pictures.

From AudioFile:

Ari Graynor narrates this debut novel, telling the story of 28-year-old Isabel Izzy Spellman, who is struggling to stay sane while working for her familys private detective agency. Its difficult to imagine a better fit than Graynor for recounting Izzys madcap adventures, romantic disasters, and attempts to locate her missing sister, whose unhealthy habit of recreational surveillance has gotten her in trouble more than once with the police. With normal behavior in her family including going through other peoples trash, snooping outside hotel rooms, trailing men in San Franciscos Tenderloin district, and doing background checks on all of her future ex-boyfriends, Izzys story is one funny adventure after another. Graynors aplomb, dynamism, and sassiness help make this first novel a laugh-out-loud treat. S.E.S.
