The indomitable Cece Caruso is back in Susan Kandel’s Dial H For Hitchcock. The vintage clothes enthusiast, biographer of masters of mystery, and amateur sleuth who has flourished her skills in Christietown and I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason now tackles a murderous puzzle full of twists, turns, and mistaken identities worthy of maestro Hitchcock himself. Readers will be Spellbound by this latest investigation by sometime-detective Cece, whom reviewers have called, “Delightful” (Boston Globe) and “A hoot” (Denver Rocky Mountain News). True mystery fans would have to be Psycho to miss Dial H For Hitchcock.

Praise For Dial H for Hitchcock: A Cece Caruso Mystery (CeCe Caruso Mysteries #5)

“Alfred Hitchcock fans should love Kandel’s fifth Cece Caruso mystery, a terrific tribute that’s also wickedly funny . . . Kandel keeps the action tight all the way to a delightful denouement that Hitch no doubt would have appreciated.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[B]reezy, entertaining . . . Brisk prose, a pistol of a protagonist, and nice riffs on Hitch—both biographical and psychological.”
— Booklist

“[R]eal charmers . . . [a] clever series.”
— New York Times Book Review
