21 Huntington Court

The sixth and final novel in the Hallie Marsh Mystery Series

by Merla Zellerbach

"Enjoyable...Credible characters and natural dialogue help speed the plot along."  Publisher's Weekly

Hallie Marsh: The heroine now of six novels became an accidental detective after breast cancer changed the course of her life. Surrounded by medical expertise and malfeasance, she has evolved novel by novel, as the mystery within begins to reflect the mystery without. Indeed, book by book, she realizes her calling: to do good. After all, charity is large, public, and blessed; crime is small, secret, and destructive...In Hallie’s society set, life may be seen as fragile, indulgent, and rewarding at the same time. The joy of the moment can reverse in an instant, as history may turn on a dime in her self-defining city...Here Hallie is on the scene reporting when murder intrudes on a high-end block party. She can only follow her focus and search for the killer, by sifting through the secrets of the A-list set she was born to.

This is a class act, a fashionable mystery, satisfying, suspenseful, and intelligent. Zellerbach writes about what she knows best, the high society heart of San Francisco. 21 Huntington Court is perhaps Zellerbach's best yet. The pacing is perfect. The possibilities many and natural. The feisty flirtations have a pleasant wit.

Highlights of Fashion History

by Gladys Perint Palmer

"It is a book that has already become a collectable." Diana Marian Murek

"To say Gladys Perint Palmer has an eye for fashion is an understatement."

“Gladys’s impudent and exuberant brush vividly nails the fashion zoo's excesses; she is our reincarnation of Toulouse-Lautrec.” Henry Steiner, Master Graphic Designer

“With Passion for Life, People and Style and a unique Sense of Humour, Gladys catches in Her beautiful drawings the Magic of the Fashion World.” Rosita Angela Margherita Missoni

“Gladys Palmer's work has always delighted me. She has a special eye for capturing the humour and whimsy as well as the beauty in fashion.” Issey Miyake

"The Insider's Eye - Gladys fascinates and intrigues (and) captures perfectly the soul of the representation, its grandeur and its whimsy...She is the Impressionist of our day." - Italian Vogue, September Issue

Perint Palmer treats her lucky subjects like exotic species with her sweeping ink strokes subtly extending necks, or exaggerating a posture, to create an air of (flattering) otherworldliness. " - Financial Times - An Autumn Best-Dressed Book

"Gladys Perint Palmer has mastered irreverent caricature in inks and washes. A fashion illustrator and commentator with a quick wit and an insider's eye, she’s been widely published. The rhythmic elegance of her art over the years is is best expressed in her take on history. Seizing and slaying selected moment, in which the great fashion makers of the world shine, Glady Perint Palmer unravels the weave of history to show us some of the more beautiful and revealing threads. The book is superbly designed by Rod Dyer, and contains a defining introduction by the editor, Elihu Blotnick, regarding the nature of art."  - Publisher's commentary
