Although insurance investigator DD McGil has always had her choice of lovers, she?s been spectacularly unlucky in love. Now one of DD?s former flames, Hemingway expert David Barnes, claims to have recovered the legendary stories and poems that Hemingway?s first wife lost while on a train to Switzerland in 1922. Barnes plans to auction them off for millions, but controversy rages. Are they truly the lost Hemingway works or are they forgeries? Found? Or stolen? DD?s quest to prove the manuscripts genuine puts her on the trail of a killer. The hunter quickly becomes the hunted when someone tries to stop her?dead.



"Hunting for Hemingway is that rare combination: a clever puzzle steeped in literary history told by an appealing protagonist. With her crisp prose and wry sense of humor, Diane Madsen is a refreshing -- and welcome -- addition to Chicago crime fiction."
Libby Fischer Hellmann, author of the Ellie Foreman and Georgia Davis mysteries

"Smart and witty, Hunting for Hemingway is a great read. I hope to spend more time with insurance investigator DD McGil in future books."
Barbara D'Amato

"A fast-paced literary mystery filled with twists, turns, blind-alleys--and murder."
Robert Goldsborough, author of the Snap Malek Mysteries

"Another fast read with quirky characters and due reverence for the Second City."
Kirkus Reviews

"The story is sexy and fun, a combination of not-too-gritty, hard-boiled detective novel and cozy mystery infused with neat little bits of Hemingway lore."

"Breezy and fast paced, this will appeal to fans of chick lit cozies and mysteries set in academia."
Library Journal
