Death of a Producer

Please join me in congratulating Donna Daniel on the publication of her new mystery, Death of a Producer, book one in her Twenties LA Mystery series! I had the pleasure of helping Donna design the cover. Here's the book description:

On a battlefield or at a cocktail party, a dead body is the ultimate secret. Lights out. Finished forever. But not for those with eyes to see.

Fresh from serving as a nurse amid the carnage of the Great War, Marnie Frederickson sees what others don’t—hopes, apprehensions, the shadow under a smile.

Marnie has transformed herself into a crime reporter, committed to speaking for the voiceless. When a small-time producer is shot dead at a drinking party filled with Hollywood types, even her editor warns her to stop when the police close the case. But Los Angeles in 1920 isn’t just a sun-drenched paradise; it’s a hotbed of schemes and ambition. As Marnie sets out on her own and tracks down every hustling actor, every reluctant witness, other motives emerge. Is the wrong person accused? A seemingly open-and-shut case reveals a deeper, darker mystery, while her search obliges Marnie to relive the war memories she’s trying so urgently to leave behind.

Who will triumph in the end? War veteran Marnie, with her unique vision? Or a clever killer?

Death of a Producer is available now in ebook and print editions on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Donna's website for more information on all of her books.
