We’re so excited to have the exclusive scoop on the fabulous cover for the second book in the Nichelle Clarke Headlines in Heels Mysteries, BURIED LEADS (Oct. 15, 2013, Henery Press). Take a look at the art and read the back cover copy.
When an Armani-clad corpse turns up in the woods, crime reporter Nichelle Clarke smells a scoop. A little digging, and Nichelle uncovers a web of corruption that stretches all the way to Washington, D.C. Politics. Murder. And a dead lobbyist. It’s everything Nichelle’s ever dreamed of.
The cops are playing it close, the feds even closer, and Nichelle’s afraid her boss will assign the story to the political desk any day. Richmond’s new ATF SuperCop makes an arrest before she can say “Louboutin,” but Nichelle’s gut says he’s got the wrong guy.
Her sexy Mafia boss friend warns her off the case, her TV rival is hot on her designer heels, an ambitious copy editor wants her beat, and victims are piling up faster than she can track them down. As Nichelle zeroes in on the truth, it’ll take some fancy footwork to nab this headline before the killer nabs her.
Praise for the Headlines in Heels mysteries:
“I loved this book, Nichelle is such a strong character, able to stand up to herself no matter what. The interaction between Bob, her boss, and Nichelle is awesome and you can see how much they care for each other. My favorite part of the book was a fight scene, not going to ruin it for you, that you just have to read.” – Cozy Mystery Book Reviews
“Author LynDee Walker sure knows her way around a plot twist. She kept me turning pages late into the night, following the rollercoaster adventures of her fashionably feisty heroine—crime reporter and designer shoe fanatic Nichelle Clarke. FRONT PAGE FATALITY is smart, funny, and loaded with surprises. A terrific debut mystery.” – Laura Levine, Author of the Jaine Austen Mystery Series
“FRONT PAGE FATALITY is delightful, with engaging characters, a crackling good mystery, and of course, high, high heels. LynDee Walker writes with wit and intelligence and the confidence of a newsroom insider. What fun!” – Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity-Award winning author of Dating Dead Men and Keeper of the Moon
“Walker’s years in a newsroom obviously have paid off: Her pacing is expert, her knowledge of police and court procedure evident, and her dialogue natural…Tight, fast-paced and funny, Front Page Fatality immediately draws the reader in, provides plenty of twists, and keeps its audience guessing up to the end.” – Style Weekly
“Fast, funny, [and] action-packed.” – The Virginian-Pilot
