First Edition Design Publishing has released LJ King’s debut novel The Morphine Murders.
The Morphine Murder’s protagonist Raina Prentiss jeopardizes her relationship, her job, a friendship, and maybe her life in LJ King’s breakout murder mystery. Prentiss goes full force into a double murder investigation without a badge, superpowers, or a vampire boyfriend.
Raina Prentiss never imagined that she would investigate a homicide beyond the comfort of her couch, armed with a remote, but that’s exactly what happens when she inadvertently finds circumstantial evidence connecting her boss to not one, but two local murders. With the reluctant approval of her police lieutenant boyfriend, Danny, she launches Mission Bottle to obtain her boss’ DNA. She recruits her co-worker, Tyler, to divert their boss’ attention while Raina sneaks around and swipes his water bottle. But a simple waft of Tyler’s scent, or the heat from his body, transports her back to the feeling of the feather-light pressure of his mouth on hers, teasing her, taunting her, during the passionate kiss she found herself entwined in a few weeks prior. With no DNA found at the crime scenes to match to their sample, Raina together with Tyler, and Danny and his detectives, continue to investigate. Because of her easy access to her boss, Raina is convinced that she is the key to obtaining proof and solving the case. Determination blinds the risks incurred by hunting a killer, as Raina uses inside information from Danny to plan her next mission.
LJ King’s 252 page suspense filled thriller The Morphine Murders is available in hardcover, softcover and ebook formats at all on-line booksellers.
When New York author LJ King isn’t defending her position that she is not an eccentric recluse but a focused writer, she is out of her office at the beach, playing tennis, gardening, and doing things with people.
