In her debut novel, Killable Hours, Pamela Eddy takes a wry look at murder, office politics and hubris among American lawyers in London. No one is more surprised than Amy Brown when she finds Daniel Blake, the boss from Hell, dead at his desk. Skeptical at the official verdict - a fatal reaction to nuts in a box of chocolates - Amy pursues a murderer by means that are decidedly not legal. She learns little in the way of clues but much about her fellow lawyers, and with the help of Polly Lawrence, an eccentric product safety expert with a mind like an encyclopedia and an office like the Home Shopping Network, more than she ever needed to know about chocolate. Together, they discover that some lawyers will do just about anything to get, and keep, a corner office.
