About Four Dead Queens

A bestselling murder mystery fantasy with a shocking twist you won’t see coming. Now in paperback.

Keralie Corrington is a talented pickpocket in the kingdom of Quadara. But when a routine theft goes horribly wrong, Keralie discovers what she’s stolen is actually a video of the four queens of Quadara being murdered. Hoping that discovering the intended recipient will reveal the culprit—valuable information that she can barter with—Keralie teams up with Varin Bollt, the messenger she stole from, to complete his delivery and uncover the murderer. But with Keralie and Varin each keeping secrets—and lives hanging in the balance—everything is at stake, and no one can be trusted.
 
Four Dead Queens is an enthralling fast-paced mystery where competing agendas collide with deadly consequences.
