    Hardcover Description:

    Harlem’s supersleuth Mali Anderson is back on the case in the fourth installment of Grace Edwards’s beautifully rendered and critically acclaimed Mali Anderson mystery series.

    All of the characters Edwards’s fans love are back. This time Mali and company take to the high seas for a brief trip aboard the QE2. When they return to Harlem, they discover that the singer in Dad’s jazz band has been murdered—her throat slit from ear to ear, and her shirtsleeve ripped to expose faded track marks. The girl’s father, also a member of Dad’s band, is devastated. Out of a sense of duty, responsibility, and loyalty to her father and his grieving friend, Mali sets out to find the murderer and slips in and out of the "three B’s" of Harlem—the beauty shops, barbershops, and bars—with her signature grace and grit.

    A spectacularly drawn Harlem—the good, the bad, and the ugly—comes vividly to life in Do or Die, which has all the charm and chutzpah Edwards’s fans have grown to expect. Readers will take delicious pleasure not only in Mali’s struggle to find the culprit before he strikes again; they will cheer her on as she fights for her jaw-droppingly gorgeous (and sensitive) man, Tad Honeywell, when he becomes the target of a sexpot’s advances.
