(A Maggie O’Malley Mystery)
by Kathleen Valenti
I love the way Valenti crafts her plots and her characters – smart, humorous, full of heart, and having the tendency to steal your breath.
~Reading Is My SuperPower
I really love the way Ms. Valenti tells a story. It’s not straight forward in your face. There are layers that need to be peeled and each little reveal moves the story along at just the right pace until everything tragically falls into place.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Maggie and Constantine are people I would like to hang out with in real life, and the action is almost non-stop. Throw in some humor, a little romance and a faithful canine companion and this series has it all.
~The Book’s the Thing
An enjoyable and well-paced read with an intricate plot.
If you enjoy a book that seems to have danger around every corner, with non-stop action, you sure don’t want to miss this one . . .

In the shadow of a past fraught with danger and tainted by loss, former pharmaceutical researcher Maggie O’Malley is rebuilding her life, trading test tubes for pill bottles as she embarks on a new career at the corner drugstore.
But as she spreads her wings, things begin to go terribly wrong. A customer falls ill in the store. Followed by another. And then more.
The specter of poisoning arises, conjuring old grudges, past sins, buried secrets and new suspicions from which no one is immune.
As Maggie and her best friend Constantine begin to investigate, they discover that some of the deadliest doses come from the most unexpected places.
