Sheila Dunham is the, famously offensive host of America’s Next Superstar. Celebrity gossip columnists love her. The female contestants on her new reality television show? Not so much. On the first day of shooting, someone fires a gun at her…and misses her. But the woman arrested at the scene isn’t involved with the show—and no one knows how she even got past security.

The house where the show’s being filmed belongs to the family of Bennis Hannaford, wife of Gregor Demarkian. A former FBI profiler, Gregor has no interest in getting involved in all this Sheila-shooting nonsense. Besides, he has other important business to attend to: The Very Old Ladies in his Armenian-American neighborhood are concerned about a stranger seen at the home of Sophie Mgrdchian, a Very Old Recluse…who is soon found fighting for her last breath. Meanwhile, , the filming of America’s Next Superstar is once again interrupted by gunfire—and this time, it’s fatal. But the victim is not Sheila Dunham. Yet.

Praise for Wanting Sheila Dead

“Outstanding...Haddam has few peers at misdirection, and she celverly satirizes the reality show industry while continuing to add depth to her lead.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)  

“Haddam’s series characters are engaging as always, including Demarkian’s quirkly Armenian neighborhood, which has enough character to count as one.”—Charlotte News Observer  

“Her take on reality TV, its egos and backstage battles, is fresh and entertaining, and (as usual) the mystery is sharply plotted. Eventually Haddam may have to deal with the fact that Demarkian’s age will prevent him from continuing to solve crimes, but let’s hope that’s not for a while yet.”—Booklist

"Haddam gleefully satirizes reality TV and offers a well though out appreciation of Agatha Christie’s novels, which she lets Demarkian savor for the first time.”—Kirkus Reviews
