We mystery readers read a diverse selection of books---Amateur Sleuth Mysteries, Suspense, Detective fiction, Historical fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance. The elements of good story-telling are the same throughout all the genres of fiction. And as mystery writers, we also get a LOT of different stories to tell. Today I'm highlighting the first book in my 3-book Molly Malone Mystery Suspense series----DEADLY POLITICS. Below, I've included the backcover description. I hope some of you give it a try. It's available in tradepaper and E-books, of course.
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.
