A future Seattle where popularity is everything. The mysterious death of the #1. And an elusive killer.
A rocky year into adulthood and lacking a personal brand, Scottie's skidding toward the bottom spot on New Seattle's popularity list--which brings a short ride out into the frozen wasteland that surrounds the town dome. When a brand finally comes her way, it's a calamitous one: Scottie is blamed for the death of the longtime #1, a charismatic stage actress named Delilah.
Aided by her "Watson," the companion her brain chip provides, Scottie scrambles to uncover the person who framed her--and who killed Delilah. Motives in the tight group of the town's social stars abound. What Scottie unearths will shake the very foundation of her world...and place her squarely in the crosshairs of a shadowy killer intent on clearing a path to #1.
A whodunit set in an all-too-possible future where brand is everything, ALL THE WHYS OF DELILAH'S DEMISE asks the ultimate question: How far are any of us willing to go to be liked?
