Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher has been among TV journalism’s elite. Until she discovers divorcing her network exec husband ends not only her marriage but her career. She’s been banished to tiny KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming, to finish out her contract as the underemployed consumer affairs reporter.

Now she’s trying to figure out what comes next – in her career, her life, and her relationships with family, friends, and those who’d like to be more than friends.

But she’s not being left in peace to wrestle with these issues because she keeps being drawn in to investigations when someone is Caught Dead in Wyoming.

Want a glimpse back in time to a year before Elizabeth arrived in Wyoming and started unraveling murders? It’s called Before the Murders. Come along as Elizabeth teams up with Sheila and Kit from the Secret Sleuth mystery series to unravel a non-murderous mystery in a historic hotel in London.
