Join us for a book launch with local author Ginny Fite! She will be celebrating the release of her newest book, Lying, Cheating, and Occasionally Murder.
When it comes to murder, even brilliant scientists aren’t immune.
The night Harold Munson is shot dead in his car, the primary suspect is the man’s brainiac wife. But Charlotte, who has a passion for science and sex with strangers, swears all she wants is a Nobel Prize for curing brain cancer, even if that requires fudging her research and a few dead patients along the way.
When the next body drops, all signs point to Charlotte, but Detective Sam Lagarde doggedly follows the clues until he has his own Eureka moment.
Ginny Fite, author of the dark mystery thrillers Cromwell's Folly and No Good Deed Left Undone, is an award-winning journalist who has covered crime, politics, government, healthcare, art and all things human.
She has been a spokesperson for a governor, a member of Congress, a few colleges and universities, and a robotics R&D company. With degrees from Rutgers University and Johns Hopkins University, she also studied at the School for Women Healers and the Maryland Poetry Therapy Institute.
In addition to her mystery series, she is the author of I Should Be Dead by Now, a collection of humorous lamentations about aging, three books of poetry-- The Last Thousand Years, The Pearl Fisher, and Throwing Caution-- and a short story collection, What Goes Around.
