Saturday, May 20, 4 p.m. - Tammy Kaehler at Mystery Ink
Orange County Launch Party
for her new Kate Reilly mystery,
KISS THE BRICKS.
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.
