FICTION / Mystery & Detective / Women Sleuths
From the cocreator of Deadpool and author of Suburban Dicks comes a diabolically funny murder mystery that features two unlikely sleuths investigating a murder that reveals the dark underbelly of suburban marriage.

After mother of five and former FBI profiler Andie Stern solved a murder—and unraveled a decades-old conspiracy—in her New Jersey town, both her husband and the West Windsor police hoped that she would set aside crime-fighting and go back to carpools, changing diapers, and  lunches with her group of mom-friends, who she secretly calls The Cellulitists. Even so, Andie can’t help but get involved when the husband of Queen Bee Molly Goode is found dead. Though all signs point to natural causes, Andie begins to dig into the case and soon risks more than just the clique’s wrath, because what she discovers might hit shockingly close to home.



Meanwhile, journalist Kenny Lee is enjoying a rehabilitated image after his success as Andie’s sidekick. But when an anonymous phone call tips him off that Molly Goode killed her husband, he’s soon drawn back into the thicket of suburban scandals, uncovering secrets, affairs, and a huge sum of money. Hellbent on justice and hoping not to kill each other in the process, Andie and Kenny dust off their suburban sleuthing caps once again.     



Story Locale: Suburban New Jersey

Series Overview: The second in a series featuring former FBI profiler Andie Stern and disgraced journalist Kenneth Lee.

STRONG PRAISE FOR SERIES: The hardcover of Suburban Dicks, Fabian Nicieza’s debut, has received fantastic early praise: it’s a finalist for the Edgar Award for Best First Novel, has two starred trade reviews, and has blurbs from heavy-hitters such as Lisa Gardner and Brad Meltzer.



WELL-CONNECTED AUTHOR: Nicieza is a well-known comic book author and editor, known for his work on Marvel titles such as X-Men, X-Force, and Deadpool

UNFORGETTABLE PROTAGONISTS RETURN: Foul-mouthed and sharp as a whip, Andie Stern returns with a bang in this novel. Her snark and detective skills, as well as her hilarious dynamic with Kenneth Lee, are on full display as she investigates her vicious, shallow, suburban friends. 

RISING POPULARITY OF DARKLY QUIRKY STORIES: With the success of novels like My Sister the Serial Killer and television shows like Dead to Me, it is clear that consumers are drawn to content that blends humor and crime. 

PAPERBACK TIE-IN: The trade paperback edition of Suburban Dicks (June 2022) will feature a teaser from this new novel.

Nicieza has made a successful leap to crime fiction (Suburban Dicks, 2021). His latest is a satirical suburban mystery that offers a brilliant blend of searing social commentary, acerbic wit, and heart wrenching tragedy…. This is an outstanding domestic thriller that effectively combines suburban comedy with a surprise-filled plot."
