Permanently Shelved

Author: ladygypsy
Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense

Synopsis

The famous, young and old, are dying only a few days after their biographies are released to the public. The subject of an upcoming biography herself, former first lady Claire Donaldson and her longtime Secret Service agent John Paulsen are on the hunt to solve this mystery before she's the next one to be permanently shelved.

Excerpt

Claire was fifty-three with white blond curly hair that was pulled back into a ponytail. She had been a widow since President Donaldson’s heart stopped beating while he slept one night six years ago. Even though he was sixty-seven at the time his passing was a shock to the entire nation, because he was one of the stereo-typically healthy politicians – very little red meat, no junk food, tiny amounts of alcohol and lots of jogging. After the viewing, the funeral and the post-tragedy interviews, Claire decided that every weekend she would have wine and cupcakes, no exceptions.
