All the Whys of Delilah's Demise

About this ebook

A twisty whodunit set in an all-too-possible future where brand is everything.

When New Seattle's most popular resident—charismatic Delilah—takes a tumble off her balcony, the blame for the seeming accident lands on nineteen-year-old Scottie. More interested in finding out who her parents were than in searching for a personal brand, Scottie's already scraping the bottom of the popularity list. This will send her down to last place—and that means a short ride out into the frozen wasteland outside New Seattle’s gates.

 While the town's social stars scuffle for the open spot at the top, Scottie, aided by her "Watson," the personal assistant her brain chip provides, scrambles to save herself and find the real culprit. What she unearths will shake the very foundation of her world...and place her squarely in the crosshairs of a shadowy killer intent on clearing a path to number one.
