“Bexley is a great leading lady who, with a little sass, just enough self-doubt to make her relatable, and plenty of intelligence, will have readers coming back for more.”
"Author Quinn Avery seems on the verge of creating her own sub-genre of crime fiction, delivering a clever protagonist with serious emotional heft that does her best work amongst the playgrounds of the super rich and famous. Fans of Willow Rose will love this novel, but Avery is an original.”
After a Jane Doe is murdered in her hometown, journalist Bexley Squires is asked by one of Hollywood’s brightest stars to clear his name. But her skills as an amateur sleuth weren’t enough to find her missing sister. Does she have what it takes to find a killer?
When she returns to California, she discovers the elite seaside community of Papaya Springs has become more corrupt than she imagined. All too soon, she stumbles into a web of twisted games played by the rich and famous. Along with the detective in charge of the case, who also happens to be her high school crush, she’ll uncover a level of depravity unlike anything she’s ever known.
The Dead Girl’s Stilettos is the first book in the Bexley Squires mystery series.
