Dead Ex

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


From Agatha Award winning author, Wollie Shelley—the endearing, idiosyncratic heroine of Dating Dead Men and Dating Is Murder—returns in a funny murder mystery set in the world of television soaps.

When David Zetrakis, the producer of a popular soap opera, is found shot to death the day after Christmas, Wollie Shelley gets caught up in the murder investigation. Zetrakis was one of the many Mr. Wrongs in Wollie’s career as a serial dater. But it's her friend Joey, a hot-tempered celebrity who also dated Zetrakis and was fired from his show, who's emerged as the media’s prime suspect. Joey's not the only potential suspect though with the cast and crew of his show benefiting nicely from Zetrakis's bequests. As the dating correspondent on a talk show SoapDirt, where Wollie dines and dishes with the stars, she quickly discovers that the behind-the-scenes intrigues of television soaps are as highly charged as the on-screen drama.

When Wollie's not protecting Joey from predatory reporters, she’s helping her brother make the transition from a mental hospital to a halfway house, and also negotiating her relationship with Simon, her FBI boyfriend. Dead Ex is another full-out romp of a mystery sure to please.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 04, 2007 – Holy Hollywood! In actor-turned-author Kozak's witty third crime caper (after 2005's Dating Is Murder), wild Wollie Shelley must solve the cold-blooded murder of terminally ill David Zetrakis, producer of the popular TV soap At the End of the Day. Tall, unarmed and sometimes very dangerous if provoked, Wollie's an underemployed greeting card artist who starts moonlighting as the dating correspondent for the talk show SoapDirt. Getting the dirt on David's killer, however, proves to be a major challenge. Wollie and her best friend, fellow Day actress Joey Rafferty, had both dated David, and Joey becomes the LAPD's top suspect when it turns out David bequeathed her a valuable Gustav Klimt painting. Wollie's faith in her friend is further tested when Joey's husband dies in a suspicious surfing accident and Joey disappears. A Greek mythology twist and crackling insider insight into the fascinating soap opera world enhance this clever whodunit.
