Gil and Claire Hunt, each married for the second time, both believe they've found the best of everything in each other. Determined to begin their lives anew and spend every possible minute together, they leave their respective residences and move to St. Louis. Gil owns and manages a secondhand bookstore. Claire is the host of a popular home shopping mall. Life is simple. But when three women are horribly murdered while watching tapes of Claire's show, Claire and Gil's quiet lives take a turn for the worst. Immediately the police are suspicious of Claire, convinced that she and her tapes are somehow linked to the murders. And so the nightmare begins....Can Gil and Claire prove Claire's innocence while protecting themselves and others from this television-crazed maniac?

Written by two critically acclaimed mystery authors, Murder is the Deal of the Day is a tight-knit bundle of suspense, emotion, and surprise.

Randisi's 2011 novel for Perfect Crime, The End of Brooklyn, won plaudits in a Booklist starred review as "dark, brooding and thoroughly compelling." The six-volume Miles Jacoby series, reissued in 2012, brought back the prize-fighter PI in novels as infused with the harmonies of New York as a Canarsie cab driver. "If [it] moved any faster you'd have to nail it down to read it," said Elmore Leonard of the first Jacoby book. Described by Booklist as "the last of the pulp writers," Randisi has published in the western, mystery, horror, science fiction and men's adventure genres, and he has been honored by the Private Eye Writers of America with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
