A beautiful legislative aide is found stabbed to death in California’s Capitol building. Maren Kane, a lobbyist for a fledgling Sacramento-based toy company, is in the midst of a legislative fight that could make or break her career. She hasn’t time for a coffee break, let alone involvement in a murder investigation. But when police arrest Maren’s colleague for the crime, she’s certain they have the wrong man. The cops suspect a crime of passion—love gone wrong. Maren disagrees, firmly believing that in the capital money and power drive all things tragic and scandalous, while sex and love are little more than window-dressing. Piecing together clues from the disparate worlds of politics, high finance, and Hollywood, Maren feels close to uncovering the killer’s identity. But will she be able to prove her theory—and free her friend—before she becomes the next victim?
Describing One Murder More as “crisp and entertaining,” John Lescroart says that Kris Calvin “”sets herself apart as a writer to watch.” Robert Dugoni calls the book “an irresistible political thriller that reminds (him) of House of Cards.” Criminal Element thinks it “a standout amongst political mysteries.”
In other words: get your fanny to Green Apple Books on Wednesday, September 23rd for an evening of chills & thrills with Kris Calvin.
