After a late night on the town, police reporter Annie Seymour only wants to sleep. But a call from her editor drags her to a cold, wet New Haven street, where she’s soon staring at a murder victim who was a Yale student by day and a high-priced escort by night. Eager to get the scoop, Annie quickly links the girl’s death to a trail of vice and fraud that leads to the city’s highest levels. Then comes the real shocker: Annie’s mother is involved. Now with the help of a sexy private investigator, Annie must uncover the truth, even as she’s forced to cover a surreal herd of fiberglass cows grazing throughout the city. Out there is a killer story that can get Annie that elusive Pulitzer…or a mention in the next day’s obituary column.
Smoke, rubble and the body of an unidentified woman are all that remains of a favorite New Haven eatery. The restaurant’s owner, a man known as much for his perfect penne as he is for his hand in an illegal gambling operation, is missing. Crime reporter Annie Seymour can’t pass up a golden opportunity for the perfect story and the chance to pound the pavement she knew as a child. But for Annie, home is NOT where the heart is and a cold reception is all that greets her inquiring ways. To complicate matters, Annie’s father, who is a friend of the missing man, is suddenly underfoot. As Annie connects the dots that point to an elusive mob ring, she must confront the fact that she’s become an outsider in her own neighborhood — and that she may be its next victim.
Dead of the Day
A soggy April has hit New Haven, Connecticut-along with an unidentified body in the harbor. The strange fact that there were bee stings on the floater gives New Haven Herald police reporter Annie Seymour an intriguing excuse to put off her profile of the new police chief — a piece that becomes a lot more interesting when the subject is gunned down. But this is only the beginning of a killer expose — because as she connects the dots between the John Doe, the police chief, and the city’s struggling immigrant population, Annie’s drawing a line between herself and someone who doesn’t want her to learn the truth, or live to report it…
New Haven police reporter Annie Seymour has a talent for running into trouble. So it should come as no surprise when her co-worker’s bachelorette party at a local club quickly turns into a crime scene. What is surprising is that the dead club manager in the parking lot happens to be Annie’s ex-husband — and the bullet shells around his body match the gun she has in her car…
