About the Book

When Lorelei Levin – after grasshoppering among 3 universities and studying courses from fine art to film-making to criminalistics – finally graduates, she learns that her parents have sold the family home in Houston and gone on a world cruise. An uncle is delighted to take Lorelei in, but he lives in sleepy, small-town nowheresville. Determined to make the best of it, she applies for a job with the local bank and with all six of the downtown merchants, to no avail. When she spies an empty corner building, Lorelei’s ever-active mind envisions it as a perfect gallery to show-place her large metal sculptures. A window poster enlightens her that the lawyers who own the building will be singing that night in another small town nearby. With her uncle visiting in Dallas, Lorelei decides that a trio of singing, guitar-playing lawyers is a treat not to miss. With luck, they’ll be delighted to have an artist take over their empty building. She goes, she listens, she enjoys the show, and she recognizes a fellow student from her classes at Sam Houston State – he’s wearing a deputy sheriff badge. During intermission, she finds the lawyers are not entirely against her gallery idea. But minutes later, everything takes a spin. The singers are loading up to leave when gunshots ring out from the parking area – and Lorelei soon becomes caught up in a murder investigation. Small-town Texas, where everybody knows everybody – and one of those somebodies is a stone killer.

About the Author

A visual and literary creative, Chris Rogers began her journey as a novelist while living in Houston, Texas. It made perfect sense that her first heroin would also hail from the nation’s fourth largest city. Meanwhile, she began instructing other novelists in the art of mystery fiction at Rice University’s School of Continuing Studies. Then four suspense novels and numberous short stories later, plus a novelististic turn at science fiction and supernatural works, Rogers moved to a small resort town in central Texas. It seemed only natural that her next hero and heroine should do the same. As a nonfiction writer, Rogers has published articles in various magazines, including Writer’s Digest. After moving from Houston, she turned her fiction-writing course into a handbook for all writers – Goosing the Write Brain, a Storyteller’s Toolkit. People need stories, she believes, and have been recording them since they learned to carve characters on the walls of caves. Today, reading and writing fiction remains Rogers’ favorite pasttime.
