A dead body in the dumpster. A teen turned detective. Can Darcy Walker crack the case, or will she be the next victim?

Meet Darcy Walker: Fifteen years old. Practical joker. With an allergic reaction to schoolwork. In Darcy's world, the best parts of the day are lunch, staring at good butts, and when the final bell rings. But everything changes when she discovers a dead body near Valley High. It awakens her inner-sleuth, and she vows to catch the murderer.

Teaming up with an out of shape jock and the school bad boy to unravel the clues, Darcy soon realizes chasing the sins of a killer can come with a price. Danger spikes the deeper she digs as she uncovers a startling connection between the corpse, a fellow nerd, and a gang infiltrating the school. When a stalker begins to shadow her every move, threatening torture and death if she doesn't stand down, Darcy has a decision to make: concede defeat or go Mach-1 at the truth and pray she comes out alive.

Does finding purpose outweigh the danger, or will she be the next body found without a pulse?

About the Author

A. J. lives in Cincinnati with her husband, two feministic daughters, an ADD dog, a spoiled hamster, and an unapologetic and unrepentant addiction to Coca-Cola. She studied English, Journalism, and Political Science at Morehead State University and left the business world when her daughters were born. Her love for suspense and a good story was born from watching Mystery Science Theater with her sister during childhood. That and any B-movie with comedic undertones they could get their hands on.

When she's not riding that razor-thin line between creativity and insanity, she likes to read, watch too much cable TV, or cheer like a banshee at her daughters' sporting events. She's a huge hometown sports fan and bleeds all things Cincinnati Reds and Cincinnati Bengals.
