Bookseller turned noir stylist Josh Cook presents his debut novel, An Exaggerated Murder. Kirkus Reviews gave the book a starred review, calling it, “A beautifully written postmodern novel of deduction that merrily, wittily blows up its genre’s conventions while at the same time re-energizing possibilities for the 21st-century detective story.”
