About the Book: For make-up salesgirl Samantha Holland, life is a constant struggle to cling to reality. Her tenuous hold on sanity is exacerbated by a toxic affair with wealthy and powerful State Representative Richard Harrison, who gets sadistic pleasure toying with her already confused mind. But Sam comes closest to losing her grip when Harrison’s emotionally disturbed stepson is murdered—and the police suspect her. When Harrison tries to break off their relationship, Sam tries to save herself by piecing together patchy memories of what might be her own involvement in the killing. The truth she uncovers is more sinister than she could have imagined.

About the Author: Living in the deep woods of Wisconsin, Ava Black has been a fan of spine-tingling stories from a young age. Things that go bump in the night invigorate her to delve deeper into the human psyche and twist her characters lives into a chaotic mess that only the truly sane can untangle. Her short story "The Box" was recently published by Spinetingler Magazine and her crime fiction reviews and author interviews can be found at Crimespree Magazine. She reads at events like Murder at the Mic and Noir at the Bar and volunteers at literary festivals such as Printers Row and Murder and Mayhem. She is a member of the Mystery Writers of America.
