Spotlight on Molly Malone in DEADLY POLITICS

by Maggie Sefton

Today for our Cozy Chicks Spotlight Saturday, I’m going to spotlight the heroine from my political suspense series---Molly Malone.  I like to think of Molly as a lot like my heroine-sleuth in the Knitting Mysteries---Kelly Flynn, but twenty years older.  Plus, Molly has experienced a lot of trauma and turmoil in her old hometown----the political cauldron of Washington, DC. 

DEADLY POLITICS, the first in the Molly Malone Suspense  Series, was released in August 2012 in trade paperback and E-books from Midnight Ink Books.  It’s available in bookstores and online.   Please visit my website for reviews and an excerpt:

Welcome to Molly Malone’s world----

Politics is a blood sport in Washington, DC, and only the strongest survive.    Like the politicians she’s rubbed shoulders with for a lifetime, Molly Malone is smart and tough and savvy enough to stay out of trouble---most of the time.  However, trouble has a way of finding Molly.

Years ago, Molly Malone was driven from Washington, DC by political back-stabbing, scandals, and personal heartbreak.  But now, circumstances have forced her to start a new life in the one place she swore she’d never return to—the city that broke her heart---and face the ghosts and the enemies from her past.

As the daughter of a respected United States Senator and once the wife of a rising star young Congressman, Molly has seen it all in Washington politics
---the cynics, the sincere, and the schemers.  But the brutal murder of her Congressional staffer niece brings Molly up close with Washington’s darker side.  “The beautiful monuments and parks are deceiving.  Washington can be ugly.”  How ugly, Molly’s about to find out.  There are other schemers out there who may not have won elections, but are more powerful than the politicians they ensnare.
