In less than two weeks, LOSING LAUREN, the second book in my Detective Rachel Storme Mystery Series will be available on Amazon.com. To say that I’m excited is a prodigious understatement. Justice for Jessica, the first book in the series, is doing well and has captured the imagination of fervid mystery readers around the world, many of whom have been clamoring for a second installment.  Well, the waiting will soon be over!

LOSING LAUREN, like its predecessor, features the feisty, smart as a whip baby boomer Detective Rachel Storme, her supervisor Herb Jones, and her co-workers, Victor Sanchez and Carlos Ramirez.  However, there’s a new juicy mind-bending conundrum to solve with a new cast of possible suspects. Lauren Waters is an A-list award-winning actress who goes missing in the style of Gone Girl.  But is it Gone Girl? Is Lauren missing, dead, or has she run away? These are the questions that Detective Storme is determined to answer. In her quest to find the truth she takes no prisoners (no pun intended), including Lauren’s cousin, Alexandra Winifred, who’s also Lauren’s publicist. The night Lauren disappears, Alexandra learns that Lauren wants to break off her relationship with her agent and manager as well as her engagement to her fiancé. But before Lauren has a chance to make good on any of her plans, she goes missing, leaving Alexandra to wonder if the agent, manager or fiancé have something to do with her disappearance, or perhaps Lauren’s best friend and competitor, Rosalind Heart is the culprit. Maybe it’s Alexandra’s boyfriend Larry Simpson. Unbeknownst to Alexandra, she ends up being named a prime suspect.  Did she do it?

Like Justice for Jessica, Losing Lauren will have you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out whodunit. And like Justice for Jessica, Losing Lauren is wrought with red herrings and twists and turns that will keep you feverishly turning the pages until you reach the explosive ending.

Born in Oakland and raised in San Francisco, playwright and author, Alretha Thomas is making her name through her pen. She started at the age of ten, when her 5th grade teacher picked and read her short story assignment in front of the class – that simple, loving act empowered a new writer. A graduate of U.S.C., Alretha’s plays have graced numerous Southern California stages. Her most recent production, “One Woman, Two Lives,” starred Kellita Smith of the Bernie Mac Show. Her debut novel, “Daughter Denied” was launched in 2008 and has received glowing reviews from readers and book clubs across the country. Her second novel “Dancing Her Dreams Away,” launched in 2011 and was also well-received. “Married in the Nick of Nine” is her third novel and she recently completed the sequel, “The Baby in the Window.” Alretha says the one and only upside to her 350-mile-a-week-commute, is that it gives her ample time to come up with story ideas. When not in bumper–to-bumper traffic she enjoys going to the movies, blogging, and spending time with her husband Roy.
