Last week, Severn House Publishers sent me the copy edits for False Front, the fifth book in the Lucinda Pierce series and St. Martin’s Press sent me the galleys for Her Deadly Web, my eleventh true crime book.   That means two new books  in the first part of 2012.


Severn House releases False Front in the UK on December 29, 2011. The USA release is set for April 1, 2012. In this thriller, Lieutenant Lucinda Pierce  encounters three deaths that appear to be suicides Sometimes, appearances can be deceiving.


Her Deadly Web makes its debut in the marketplace on January 3, 2012.  This true crime story is mind-boggling.  Nurse Raynella Dossett Leath claimed that her first husband, prosecutor Ed Dossett, died by cattle stampede.  Everyone ignored the apparent morphine overdose that actually took his life.


When her second husband, barber David Leath, died of a gunshot wound, she said he committed suicide.  There was one problem with that theory: the second shot was fatal.  David could not have fired the third shot through the mattress.


To add spice to the plot, there is an attempted murder, a love child, a secret city and two medical examiners going for their guns when confronted by police officers.
Both books are available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other book sellers.


Coming up this week: I am one of the interviewees on True Hollywood Story:Casey Anthony airing  on E! this Wednesday night at 10 pm Eastern/ 9 pm Central.

May you all have a fabulous week!
