When we last saw Wendy Darling and Roger Jolley, they’d recovered twelve of the thirteen Egyptian icons stolen from the British Museum. Wendy, Miami Realtor and part-time Tomb Raider, is now in a frantic race against time and a murderer as she searches for the last Lost Boy hidden somewhere in London while a killer heat wave invades the city.

Books in the Fractured Fairy Tales by Silkstone series:
The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters
Wendy and the Lost Boys
London Broil
Snow White – coming in 2012

This book contains bonus chapters from:
The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters
Wendy and the Lost Boys

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Ah, another Silkstone classic. London Broil continues the saga of Wendy Darlin, real-estate broker turned adventurer. After surviving Wendy and the Lost Boys, our lovable heroine is pulled back into the action-packed fringes of antiques. Who’s on the up and up? Who’s in it for the money? Who just likes to steal priceless artifacts? Barbara Silkstone will keep you guessing while at the same time tickling your funny bone. If you read and liked Wendy or Alice, this MUST be added to your TBR list. If you haven’t read them, why not?

Yes, I think it’s clear to anyone reading Barbara Silkstone’s reviews that I’m a devoted fan. I asserted that Barbara out-did herself with Wendy and the Lost Boys…it was a real page turning, laugh a minute thrill. But little did I suspect she had a sequel lurking in that comic brain of hers. London Broil is just as funny and fast-paced as Wendy, and I was excited to find two of my favorite characters, Roger Jolley and Treanna popping back up again (and Wendy Darlin, of course). London Broil is a masterful ride through a London heat wave, with bad guys galore and a plot that keeps you guessing – and, as does every fine author, she leaves nary a loose end untied. Very satisfying. Lots and lots of fun!


London Broil was a laugh a minute. The characters came to life before my eyes with Silkstone’s sharp wit and vivid descriptions. If you enjoyed Wendy and the Lost Boys this is a must read you won’t regret it.

About The Author

Barbara Silkstone is the best-selling author of The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters ~ Wendy and the Lost Boys ~ London Broil ~ The Adventures of a Love Investigator, 527 Naked Men and One Woman.

Silkstone’s writing has been described as “perfectly paced and pitched – shades of Janet Evanovich and Carl Hiaasen without seeming remotely derivative. Fast moving action that shoots from the hip with bullet-proof characterization.” She has attended writing workshops with Stephen King, Robert B. Parker, P.D.James, and James Michener.

Wendy and the Lost Boys topped the charts in comedy, climbing over Tina Fey, Sophie Kinsella and Ellen DeGeneres. The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters has been a consistent best seller in comedy. Both Wendy and Alice have been in the top 20 Amazon comedies at the same time.

“I enjoy doing playful things with language, blending two distinct words to create a new word. If I’m laughing out loud when I’m writing, then I know I’ve hit the mark. I laugh so loud while I’m writing that the neighbors think I’m having wild parties. I’m not. I live in South Florida where I survive on buttered popcorn and Kentucky Fried Chicken… extra crispy.”
