All the Whys of Delilah's Demise

About this ebook

A twist-filled mystery thriller set in a near-future Seattle.


Scottie, a rocky year into adulthood, is skidding toward the bottom spot on New Seattle’s popularity sorting -- the People List. When a brand finally comes her way, it’s a calamitous one: Scottie is blamed for the death of the longtime #1, a charismatic stage actress named Delilah.


Scottie is convinced someone murdered Delilah. She’ll have to prove it alone, her only confidante her AI chip, Cece. The clock is ticking. The People List will update in a week and last place brings a one-way trip into the frozen wasteland outside the town gates.


The sensible move: work on her brand. The risky move: pursue a killer.
