From New York Times bestselling author Debra Burroughs comes a suspenseful murder mystery with a delicious twist of romance. Sassy and headstrong Emily Parker's world was torn apart when her dashing private-eye husband was brutally killed. In time, as she returned to normal life, she began to unravel clues that maybe he wasn't who he claimed to be.

With the help of her close circle of friends and the sexy new police detective in town, Emily eventually took over her late husband's business and searches for answers to his murder. In the meantime, when disturbing coincidences keep popping up, she suspects there may be a sex slave ring operating in her town. Emily is determined to find out the truth and rescue the girls, even if it means putting her own life in danger.

The Chain of Lies is Book 3 in the Paradise Valley Mystery series, although it can be read as a stand-alone book. Sensual and gripping with murder, romance, mystery, and intrigue, think of The Chain of Lies as "Sex and the City" meets "Women's Murder Club".

Author Description:
Brad Convissar is a dentist by day, a writer of dark fiction at night, and a father, husband, and not-so-proud pet owner when time permits. He is the author of several dozen short stories, four novellas, and will be releasing his first novel, Blood, Smoke and Ashes, a supernatural thriller, in early 2013.

He was born in Georgia, but moved to southern New Jersey before he could be forced to be an Atlanta Braves fan. He spent his formative years living outside of Philadelphia where he latched on to the Philly sports teams and was promptly disappointed for almost twenty years. He spent his college years in New Orleans, where he earned his bachelor's degree in evolutionary biology at Tulane University, then relocated to lovely Newark New Jersey, where he earned his DMD.

After eight years of bouncing around, Brad finally settled down back in south Jersey, only miles from the house he grew up in. He is happily married and the proud father of two children. He is also "dad' to a diabetic, half-blind eight-year-old daschund named Friday who is little more than a lump on the couch most of the time.

When not filling cavities or performing root canals or extracting teeth or fabricating dentures, or writing, he spends his time playing with his kids, playing video games, reading comic books, reading non-illustrated books, and impotently rooting on his beloved Philadelphia Phillies or less than beloved Philadelphia Eagles.
