The Prequel to SHOPPING CART ANNIE
When Inez Buchanan’s beloved neighbor dies, family and friends believe it was a heart attack. Six months later Gaelen’s grown daughters think differently. They suspect their father was murdered and attempt to get a reluctant Inez involved. But after two police are killed, terrorists become suspects, and one of Gaelen’s daughters goes missing, Inez dives into the investigation using intuition and keen observation.
With the help of her former student, Inez is no longer a reclusive, retired African American schoolteacher, but an amateur sleuth, who grabs the attention of brazen international spies and the CIA.

The next installment in the award-winning Anna Blanc Mystery series is coming to bookstores July 16th, 2019.
Los Angeles, 1908. Anna Blanc is a former so-so socialite, a flailing police matron, and a killer detective.
Ex-heiress, Anna Blanc, is precariously employed by the Los Angeles Police Department, reforming delinquent children and minding lady jailbirds. What she really wants is to hunt criminals and be alone with Detective Joe Singer–both no-nos that could get her fired. On a lover’s tryst in Griffith Park, Anna and Joe discover the body of a young gambler. Anna can’t resist. She’s on the case.
With a murder to solve and her police matron duties piling up, a young girl shows up at Central Station claiming to have been raped by a man from Mars. The men at the station scoff, but Anna is willing to investigate. Meanwhile, Anna begins getting strange floral arrangements from an unknown admirer. Following the petals leads her to another crime–one close to home. Suddenly pitted against Joe, Anna must examine her loyalties and solve the crimes, even if it means losing the man she loves.
A wild romp through turn-of-the-century Los Angeles . . . Anna Blanc is a blast!
–Amy Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of GIRL WAITS WITH GUN.
