Murder in Prime Time!

Buck Stevens, the fading star of TV's weekly Stone: Private Eye, appears to be everyone's hometown hero--a fountain of folk wisdom and hearty bonhomie. In actuality, he treads the thin line between dirty old man and statutory rapist.

After Amy Westin, Buck's young (and chillingly ambitious) costar, refuses to continue as his tootsie, Buck starts to make advances to the latest addition to the Stone crew: private investigator Dutch O'Brien, who has been hired to ensure the show's authenticity. Dutch very cagily repels Buck's advances. That night, at her home, Dutch receives a heavy box from an unknown source. Inside is a flowered hatbox scented with roses. Inside that, wrapped in pink tissue, is Amy Westin's severed head.

And beneath the decapitated head is a plastic-wrapped note stating: You're next.

BUCK NAKED is a fast, funny, sexy send-up of Hollywood that turns the conventions of the mystery novel on their ears. In the crowded world of private eyes, Demeter O'Brien is a true original--wry, insightful, impulsive, romantic.
--Susan Dunlap

Raymond Chandler meets Dorothy Parker in Joyce Burditt's fabulous detective-heroine, Demeter Dutch O'Brien... BUCK NAKED is extraordinarily entertaining.
--Marcy Carsey, Producer of Roseanne, Cybill,  and Grace Under Fire.



The sample chapters of this book that were available seem to have gone off the web. Probably the book is getting so old that they don't keep it on line.

* You may want a copy of this book in the form of a planar cellulose information retrieval system, i.e. a printed book. They make good gifts, and are more familiar to most of us than electronic copies. But finding a printed copy of a book is sometimes difficult. This section is intended to give you some help by making it easy to use the more common ways of searching.

1 The first column consists of links to the home pages of the biggest suppliers of books by mail: Amazon and Barnes & Noble. These two suppliers have mostly new books, and their new book inventory probably has an overlap of something like 90%, but this does not mean that they both have exactly the same price. Both of them also list used books from outside suppliers, and the used book inventories are usually quite different. ABE Books is a loose grouping of some 17,000 independent bookstores that list their inventory in a common database - most of these are used books that vary from just issued best sellers to rare and antique books.

From all three home pages you can do searches, look at comments, check prices of both new and used copies, look at various formats such as hardback, paperback, eBook formats and much more.

2 The second column has links to Barnes & Noble and Amazon pages describing their new eBook Readers. These have become very popular lately as they allow the purchase of new books and textbooks at prices lower than the printed copies, and in a format that many people find attractive.

3 Clicking on the links in the third column sends you to the supplier along with the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of the book described on this page if we have been able to find that number. Note that an ISBN refers to a specific edition of a book. Thus a single book might have many ISBNs: Hardback edition, softback, large print, foreign language and so on. Usually the book listing on B & N or Amazon will have links to the other editions that are available.

4 Is our ISBN wrong, or perhaps missing all together. Help us out. Search on B&N and Amazon. If you find one, please let us know. Enter the thirteen (Barnes & Noble) or ten (Amazon) digit number (no dashes) in the boxes above and click on the Submit ISBN button. The numbers shown in the boxes are the numbers we have on file, or zero if we haven't found one.
