Overview

Esther Diamond’s year gets off to a rocky start when NYPD’s Detective Connor Lopez, who slept with her and then didn’t call, shuts down the Little Italy restaurant where Esther works between acting jobs and gets her arrested. Once she’s out of handcuffs, Esther takes a small role in a grad student’s film project in Chinatown—where her friend, semi-retired hit man Lucky Battistuzzi, is hiding out in a Chinese-Italian mortuary.

Esther and Lucky soon realize that something strange is going on in Chinatown, where mysterious gourmet fortune cookies are inflicting deadly mystical curses on the hapless victims who receive them as gifts—and before long, Esther learns that Detective Lopez is one of the recipients. As preparations heat up for the Chinese New Year, when the icy streets will be filled with costumed lion dancers, firecrackers, and dense crowds, Esther and Lucky summon the help of their friend Max, a semi-immortal mage, to help them save Chinatown and Lopez—though he doesn’t deserve it—from the menace of a maniacal murderer.

The Misfortune Cookie is the sixth installment of the acclaimed Esther Diamond series.

Praise

“Full of witty banter, mystery, clever characters, and a bit of magic and romance – I can’t get enough of these stories. And this latest adventure is no exception.” —SciFiChick

“It’s another entertaining romp mixed with supernatural mystery, and full of oddball characters and interesting places, this time with a definite Chinese flavor that adds to the fun.” —Locus

You have got to love Esther. She is such a fun character to read about. I always enjoy a good laugh and action at the same time, and Ms. Resnick always delivers.” —Night Owl Reviews
