What Doesn't Kill You Prequel: An Ensemble Mystery

Book Cover: Act One

USA Best Book Award-Winning Series, Cross Genre Fiction

A fast-paced prequel mystery featuring all the kick ass What Doesn't Kill You female sleuths.

It's five years before Katie runs away to the islands, and this time her travels take her closer to home: back to her law school reunion. With Emily as her plus-one and Michele rounding out the party, their evening at a murder mystery dinner theater goes awry with weird former classmates, too many cocktails, and—oh yeah—a real murder onstage before the cast finishes Act One. Meanwhile, fallen-star Maggie loses out on her chance at redemption in the starring role when she shows up polluted, and Ava gleefully fills in, in more ways than one. Laura, on a stopover between races, attends on gifted tickets from a grateful horse owner, and has a ringside view to the circus. The women's paths crisscross and backtrack over each other in ways that will resonate for years to come, with each holding clues she doesn't know she has to the identity of the murderer, who is far too close to one of them for comfort.
