The Novel “I Didn’t Do It” Is Set at a Mystery Writers’ Conference

From a New York Times story by Sarah Weinman about crime novels”:

In my many years of attending crime and mystery writers’ conferences, the thought occurred to me — more than once — that they would make excellent settings for, well, murder. Jaime Lynn Hendricks takes this idea and runs with it in I DIDN’T DO IT, her third suspense novel and one that entertainingly lays bare all kinds of writerly insecurities.

After a star author, Kristin Bailey, is found dead in her hotel room during the Murderpalooza conference, the news spreads quickly among other attendees. Soon, an anonymous Twitter account called @MPaloozaNxt2Die begins following and threatening just four people, all Kristin’s publishing rivals.
