Imagine. Flo Perlstein is found D.O.D.-Dead on Desk-the night of Pine View Elementary School's Science Fair. Who had a motive to strangle the fifth grade teacher? Everyone who knew her. Flo Perlstein was narcissistic, hypochondriacal and rude. She talked incessantly. She drove people crazy. Barbara Lawson was Flo's closest colleague-and not by choice. Intrigued by the role of amateur sleuth, Barbara gets drawn into the investigation of Flo's murder. She finds herself drawn to the handsome detective who leads the investigation. Her involvement causes conflict by challenging her image of herself and the boundaries of her marriage. Her involvement exposes her to a very different kind of show and tell. This particular game is far from innocent. It puts her life in danger. Dead Silent is contemporary fiction with a diverse and unique cast of characters. Humor and a hint of romance balance the tension created by a very unusual murder investigation.
