Rosemary Herbert is the Boston Herald’s former book review editor. She is the Edgar Award-nominated editor-in-chief of the Oxford Companion to Crime and Mystery Writing, co-editor with Tony Hillerman of A New Omnibus of Crime, and editor of several other mystery anthologies. She also writes the weekly “Notes from the Deep End” column for the Bangor Daily News.

Her debut novel features Liz Higgins, a reporter on Boston’s scrappy tabloid newspaper, the Beantown Banner. Liz chafes at being assigned only light features and community news—reporting that receives at best front-page teasers pointing to articles buried deep in the paper. She vows to change that when young Veronica Johansson begs her to help her find her devoted mother who has gone missing from her suburban home.
