About this title
"A SMART AND SHOCKING THRILLER."--The Minnesota DailyWhen Cordelia Thorn ventures to Summer Green, Wisconsin, for a reunion with some old college friends, she finds trouble in paradise. Twenty-plus years have definitely changed things. Soap opera star Diana has become an alcoholic. Curt and Annie's marriage is falling apart. Orson is hostile and surly. And Theo, the most passionate of them all, suddenly dies--of an apparent heart attack.Alarmed, Cordelia sends for her old friend Jane Lawless to do some quiet snooping. Together they follow their hunches--into the not-so-carefree past and back to the troubled present, where they find a single match could blow up all their lives . . . . "Cordelia and Jane are at their wise-cracking, risk-taking best as they tail suspects, stake out a sleazy motel, and burn rubber in a high-speed chase. As in all of Hart's well-written, fast-paced novels, motives abound, clues appear and disappear, and suspects seem alternately harmless and menacing . . . . A SMALL SACRIFICE is another entertaining addition to Hart's collection."--Lambda Book Report"Hart tells the story of this fateful reunion with deep compassion, strong psychological insight, bravura wit, and a clever plot."--Alfred Hitchcock Mystery MagazineFrom the Publisher:
One of my favorite memories of working with Ellen Hart was near the end of her 1995 book tour for the paperback of A KILLING CURE. Her exhaustive tour ended in New York. After the final book signing, Ellen, her editor, and I (her publicist) all joined for a celebratory dinner. And we had extra reason to celebrate because only one week earlier Ellen had been in Chicago to receive her first Lambda Literary Award for A SMALL SACRIFICE. She was deservedly thrilled.
I asked her some random question concerning the award and the next thing I know she's rooting inside her handbag and pulls out the actual award. It wouldn't be so startling if the plaque didn't weigh several pounds and resemble a beautiful, oversized ashtray. For over a week (and while constantly traveling) she had kept her precious prize -- no matter how heavy or inconvenient -- close to her side. Her joy was truly genuine and infectious and I'm so glad to have shared that sweet moment.
--Patrick Price, Senior Publicist
