Meet Darcy Walker: bored, ADHD, and a verb in a world full of nouns. Will she solve a murder in this fast-paced caper or die before she reaches sixteen? Readers call this #1 Amazon bestseller Stephanie Plum meets Veronica Mars meets The Blacklist.
Fifteen years ago, Darcy Walker’s parents thought it was a good idea to give her a unique name: Darcy, meaning “dark walker.” Whether that was a stroke of genius or stroke of stupid, they definitely nailed the irony. She lacks direction, her grades stink despite a high IQ, she’s boringly average—although flirting admirers claim otherwise—and God help her, she’s infatuated with a bad boy.
A bad boy that her hottie best friend, Dylan, wishes would get acquainted with his fist.
With her life spiraling out of control, everything changes when she skips class and finds a dead body . . . in fact, it gets worse. It jump starts Darcy’s inner-verb, and her brain, which is hardwired for action, gets caught up in a situation she can’t let go.
Set in the fictional Cincinnati town of Valley, Ohio, Darcy falls into a world of threats, violence, and gangland exploits chasing down every clue to finger the murderer. When a fellow misfit is arrested for the crime, Darcy goes from zero-to-sixty trying to clear his name—constructing aliases, breaking the law, everything that makes perfect sense to her but reeks of Grade A Stupid to everyone else.
Trouble is . . . will she live to see sixteen?
