The “splendid genre-pushing” (People) Vera Kelly series returns in full force as our recently out-of-the-spy-game heroine finds herself traveling from Brooklyn to a sprawling countryside estate in the Caribbean in her first case as a private investigator.  When ex-CIA agent Vera Kelly loses her job and her girlfriend in a single day, she reluctantly goes into business as a private detective. Heartbroken and cash-strapped, she takes a case that dredges up dark memories and attracts dangerous characters from across the Cold War landscape. Before it’s over, she’ll chase a lost child through foster care and follow a trail of Dominican exiles to the Caribbean. Forever looking over her shoulder, she nearly misses what’s right in front of her: her own desire for home, connection, and a new romance at the local bar. In this exciting second installment in the Vera Kelly series, Rosalie Knecht challenges and deepens the Vera we love: a woman of sparkling wit, deep moral fiber, and martini-dry humor who knows how to follow a case even as she struggles to follow her heart.

Editorial Reviews

“Knecht brilliantly captures Vera’s emotions, and shines with keen observations of the varied settings. This winning literary page-turner gives a strong sense of a smart, queer, and complex person navigating an unfriendly world.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Knecht’s writing is evocative and spare, stylish and brooding…offering a refreshing spin on atmospheric noir with a compelling queer historical frame.” Booklist
“Author Knecht uses this second book to delve more into Vera’s personal life and history…Readers will be thrilled by Vera Kelly’s return. A worthy and welcome continuation of a subversive series.” Kirkus Reviews
“Vera bounces between the Big Apple and the Caribbean in search of answers, always staying one step ahead of the bad guys.,,Knecht’s stylish mystery is impossible to put down and just begging for a third installment.” BookPage
“With Vera Kelly, Rosalie Knecht has resurrected the detective novel for the twenty-first century. Sharp, self-possessed, and with a nuanced, meaningful knowledge of realities and histories well beyond her own, Vera’s take on who’s lying and why makes for riveting reading in every scene. I tore through this book. More Vera Kelly, please.” Idra Novey, author of Those Who Knew
“Rosalie Knecht is an audacious talent, and her latest novel a propulsive, subversive gem. Vera Kelly Is Not a Mystery reintroduces us to Vera, one of the most compelling and complex characters in modern fiction, and puts her to the task of unwinding an intriguing mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end.” Lauren Wilkinson, author of American Spy
