The Surprise Hit of the Season!

Actress Dayna Anderson's Deadly New Role: Homicide Detective

Dayna Anderson doesn't set out to solve a murder. All the semifamous, mega-broke actress wants is to help her parents keep their house. So after witnessing a deadly hit-and-run, she pursues the fifteen grand reward. But Dayna soon finds herself doing a full-on investigation, wanting more than just money—she wants justice for the victim. She chases down leads at paparazzi hot spots, celeb homes, and movie premieres, loving every second of it—until someone tries to kill her. And there are no second takes in real life.

"Funny, lively characters populate this new Detective by Day series…this will be an entertaining entry into the amateur sleuth genre."—RT Book Reviews

"Fun, smart, endearingly flawed, and impressively determined, Dayna Anderson is a heroine readers will fall in love with…I relished every unexpected twist and turn of this highly entertaining mystery!"—Kyra Davis, New York Times bestselling author
