MURDER IN A-MINOR ~ JANIS THOMAS

Murder In A - Minor By Janis Thomas

( CATCHING A CUNNING KILLER )

Former detective Samantha Wedlock is having a bad year after botching a huge case with the New York PD. Sam flees to her childhood home of Southern California and escapes her demons with the internet and booze.

Her career is over, her instincts have taken a vay-cay, and her music-the songs she composes in her head to help her solve puzzles and the challenges of her life-has abandoned her. When her old flame, sexy Lieutenant Jack Hudson, shows up on her doorstep to ask for her help with the case of two murdered college coed, Sam refuses.

But she can’t resist the hunt, and soon becomes enmeshed in the investigation. The more involved she becomes the more she sees the case as a means of rediscovering the things she’s lost: her purpose, her drive, and her hope for the future.

With her music playing at full volume, Sam must re-sharpen her wits and learn to trust her instincts again in order to catch a cunning killer.

FOUR WORDS LEFT

The Note By Reggie Turk

One year ago Chellie Morris drove through a stop sign less than a mile from her house into the stampeding traffic of State Route 30. Nathan, her husband, arrived home after the accident to find a four word note on a bookshelf; not a suicide note, not a goodbye, not even a reminder for something he might forget, just four unexplainable words.

Too much alcohol and too little sleep have turned the last 365 days into a stagnant haze. Painful flashes from the last day, uneven rewinds of the past, and the haunting words of the note chaotically rumble and roll through his mind.
Four words only, four words left.
