While author Elaine Viets currently lives in Florida, the St. Louis native visits often and more often than not, her stories involve a St. Louis connection.
For many years Viets was columnist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
A few months ago, St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh visited with Viets to talk about the latest book in her Josie Marcus Mystery Shopper series.
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.
