"Translator-sleuth Cassandra Reilly takes off after new literary adventures around the globe! The Death of a Much-Travelled Woman gathers in one volume the exploits and mishaps of the globetrotting Cassandra Reilly. In these nine madcap investigations, Cassandra journeys to such varied locations as Helsinki, Hawaii, Vladivostock, Reykjavik, and the English countryside. The thefts, murders, and other crimes she's called on to help solve are engagingly literary, with more than a dash of satire aimed at publishers, editors, writers, and of course, translators. Goodhearted, witty, and rakishly unabashedly lesbian, Cassandra Reilly is a wonderful travelling companion for armchair or train compartment."
