Saturday, May 20, 4 p.m. - Tammy Kaehler at Mystery Ink
Orange County Launch Party

for her new Kate Reilly mystery,  


After the first practice session for the legendary Indianapolis 500 motor race, Kate Reilly is stunned to discover she was the fastest driver- -but she's  more surprised to learn she wasn't the  first woman  to top the speed charts in the race 106-year  history. That feat was accomplished in 1987 by PJ  Rodriguez--who shocked everyone  by committing  suicide ten days later.
 When the press, bloggers, and social media go crazy  over the connection, Kate  loses her identity--  suddenly everyone's comparing Kate and PJ, calling  Kate  PJ, and wondering if Kate will kill herself, too.  Except that PJ's family claim PJ  murdered, and  they want Kate's help finding her killer and restoring  her. Thirty years after the fact.
