"Why Didn't I Think of This" Department

Elaine Viets writes mystery novels. Her hook is that she--and her novels' protogonist--take a different dead end job for each one. She sold "bustiers to bimbos" for Shop Till You Drop and was a telemarketer for Dying To Call You.

I figured, maybe the hook is cool but the writing will suck. But there's a sample chapter and it's a lot of fun, so I'll definitely check it out.

Also sounds like yet another great idea for one of my many possible "When I retire and write mystery novels" scenarios. Except Elaine Viets is already doing it.

H/T Hey, There's a Dead Guy in the Living Room.
