Yay, thanks. Found it at Amazon and Kobo. Looks like Soho Press is publishing these also.

While looking for these I found three bargain books from Wakefield by Steve J. Spears, 1.95 each, at Amazon. Originally published in 2003, 2004, and 2005.

Murder at the Fortnight

Quote:
Mix Elmore Leonard with a pinch of Tarantino, a hint of farce and a dob of Agatha Christie and you've got 'Murder at The Fortnight'. Introducing Stella Pentangeli - Lady Showbiz Detective - and Investigator Ng - The Last Honest Cop. 'Murder at The Fortnight' is a darkly hilarious tale of murder, greed, fame and lust set squarely under the bright lights of the world of showbusiness. When celebs start dropping like flies at The Playwright's Fortnight, Stella and Ng must battle media hysteria and political backstabbing in their desperate search for a killer who keeps on killing. Who will be next? The dialogue is snappy, the characters outrageous, and the story gripping.

Steve J. Spears was a professional writer for thirty years. He is best known as the author of one of Australia's classic plays, 'The Elocution of Benjamin Franklin'. He has published stage plays, children's books and a collection of his essays, 'In Search of the Bodgie'. 'Murder at The Fortnight' is the first in his series of darkly comic whodunit novels under the collective title of 'The Pentangeli Papers'.
Murder By Manuscript.

Quote:
All internationally renowned 'lady showbiz detective' Stella Pentangeli wants, is to solve a simple literary riddle: did William Shakespeare belong to a blood-thirsty 17th century cult which resurrected dead people? All enigmatic and brilliant Investigator Ng wants, is to find out why a relentless monster is using Shakespeare's personal recipe to make 'resurrection soup' out of 21st Century citizens. As the body count mounts, all the serial killer wants is to add Stella and Ng to the menu. 'Murder by Manuscript' follows 'Murder at The Fortnight' as the 2nd volume of 'The Pentangeli Papers'.
Innocent Murder

Quote:
In 'Innocent Murder', Investigator Ng and Stella Pentangeli work different sides of the crime fence. Ng's case is one of triads, sex slavery and murder. Stella's case is a showbiz trifle - she must discover who is stealing plotlines from the hugely successful soap 'The Young and the Naked' and selling the information to a rival channel.
