Houdini and Dorothy Parker set a date for December

A new book teaming Houdini and Dorothy Parker will be released in December. You Might As Well Die by J.J. Murphy is the latest "Algonquin Round Table Mystery" and will feature Parker and Houdini puzzling out a crime with a spiritualist connection in 1920s New York.

When second-rate illustrator Ernie MacGuffin's artistic works triple in value following his apparent suicide off the Brooklyn Bridge, Dorothy Parker smells something fishy. Enlisting the help of magician and skeptic Harry Houdini, she goes to a séance held by MacGuffin's mistress, where Ernie's ghostly voice seems hauntingly real...

You Might As Well Die is due for release as a paperback from Signet on December 6, 2011 and can be pre-ordered now on
