“Unplug the phone and settle down for a fast and funny read."—New York
bestselling author Mary Jo Putney

While working as a singing waitress at Bella Stella’s in Little Italy, struggling actress Esther Diamond witnesses a mob hit. And right before getting whacked out, the victim tells her that he just saw his own doppio—a perfect double and a notorious portent of death.

Before long, more doppelgangers start haunting New York's mobsters, who are subsequently getting bumped off in mysterious ways. Meanwhile, Esther's new love-interest, Detective Connor Lopez, gets transferred to the NYPD's Organized Crime Control Bureau and is assigned to investigate these very same mob hits.

Determined to prevent the murder of more of her restaurant customers, slayings that would soon lead to a mob war, Esther tries to uncover the evil genius behind the deadly doppelgangsters. Along with Max, the 350-year-old sorcerer, and Lucky, an aging hit man, Esther delves deep into the world of wise guys in pursuit of a ruthlessly mystical murderer.

“A wonderful blend of comedy and surprising suspense. Ifyou haven't met Esther Diamond yet, then you're missing out on a lot of fun."—Linda Howard, New York Times bestselling author

"Fans of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series will appreciate this series' lively heroine and the appealing combination of humor, mystery, and romance." —Library Journal (starred review)

“Gleeful, clever... [Resnick] spins a witty, fast-paced mystery around her convincingly self-absorbed chorus-girl heroine." —Publishers Weekly

"An amusing urban fantasy starring a wonderful heroine surrounded by a horde of eccentrics, one straight cop, and one interfering matchmaking mom. The jocular story line is filled with a fast-paced frenzy from the first magical mugging until the last as Esther proves once again to be a reader's best friend with her misadventures in Manhattan mystical mayhem." —Midwest Book Review

"Dopplegangster is a joy from start to finish, with a sexy hero, a smart heroine (Does Laura Resnick write any other kind?), a fascinating plot, and a troop of supporting characters both lovable and otherwise. It's a wonderful blend of comedy and surprising suspense. If you haven't met Esther Diamond yet, then you're missing out on a lot of fun." —Linda Howard, New York Times Bestselling author
