Vaadum, the kind of place where vacationers go by accident, has room for the survivors. Only someone has started picking them off too. Can they catch the killer before he kills them all?Killer Advice chronicles an adventure in the life of Misha, the hero of a novel which Rusch wrote under the pen name Kris DeLake, before he meets Rikki in Assassins in Love.Chosen as one of the best novellas of 2011 by the readers of Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine.“In Killer Advice, the rundown Vaadum Resort and Casino in an ass-end part of the galaxy finds itself suddenly filled with guests, the result of a fire on the ship on which they were traveling. Despite the lucrative prospects of paying guests, hotelier Hunsaker soon finds himself regretting his good fortune, when a guest turns up dead.…What unfolds is a gripping tale with enough whodunit characters to make Agatha Christie proud.”—Stainless Steel Droppings“[Killer Advice is] not the sort of mystery where readers are challenged to discover the killer…The story is in the characters, watching them react to the situation, rising to it and failing to. But it’s enough of a mystery to intrigue, with the outcome in doubt until the end. A good read.”—Locus“Killer Advice has a great cast of characters, a good story and lots of hooks for future tales at Vaadum Resort and Casino.”—Mixed Bag BooksKris DeLake is one of writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s many pen names.
