Cassie Ellis is a soon-to-be published author, days away from achieving her lifetime goal. But before she can celebrate, before she can even have her first book signing, she's brought in to Baltimore City Police Headquarters for questioning in connection to a real-life murder.
It seems she's the last person to see the victim alive, since she had just met with the former arsonist to conduct research for her next book.
When another of her subject matter experts is killed, Cassie decides to investigate things herself. Along the way, she finds out that murder in real life is different than murder on the page.
Available in e-book and paperback on Amazon.
Author Cassie Ellis wants to meet her boyfriend's father, even though he thinks it's a bad idea. For the past nine years, Detective James Whittaker avoided contact with his father after a city-wide scandal made the elder Whittaker retire from the Baltimore Police force in shame.
When Whittaker's father is suddenly accused of killing the very police officer that exposed his past crimes, Cassie risks her own reputation -- not to mention her life -- to solve the murder.
