Margin of Error, The Britt Montero Mysteries

A movie star comes to Miami—and mayhem ensues—in this crime thriller by an Edgar Award finalist: “[An] extremely likable heroine” (Publishers Weekly).

Crime reporter Britt Montero had to shoot a man to save her own life, and the memory of it is tormenting her. So when a major Hollywood actor strides into the newsroom, hoping to do research for the character he portrays, the seemingly cushy job is given to Britt in the hope that it will help her recover from her traumatic experience.

But the assignment turns out to be not so much fun: An obsessed madwoman stalks the star, and mysterious mishaps, accidents, and deaths push him and Britt closer together. Both are menaced by the stalker—or perhaps, by someone else who is determined to sabotage the film and murder its leading man . . .

“[An] irresistible series.” —Kirkus Reviews
