Henderson writes traditional mysteries with a difference: Sam Jones, her charming, sexy ammeter sleuth, is an increasingly successful sculptress with a penchant for casual sex and recreational drugs. The books brim with humour and atmosphere, and in each instalment the London-based, twentysomething Sam is placed in a new environment. In Dead White Female the heroine experiences her first brush with the art market while trying to uncover the mysterious circumstances surrounding a friendís death. In Too Many Blondes, Jones herself becomes a suspect in a murder investigation after a body has been discovered in her local fitness centre, while in The black Rubber Dress one of Samís sculptures has been used as a murder weapon and she cannot resist finding the culprit. In Freeze My Margarita (out in June) the theatre fraternity receives the Henderson treatment.
