Many St. Louisans remember Elaine Viets from her time as a columnist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
In the 15 years since she left the city, she has become a prolific and New York Times best-selling author of mystery novels.
One of Viets’ series features St. Louis mystery shopper Josie Marcus. The series debuted in October 2005 with “Dying in Style.” “Murder Is a Piece of Cake" is her eighth adventure.
Host Don Marsh talked with Viets about her new book and experiences in St. Louis.
