From the Author
This is the first of 7 Marly Jackson Mysteries. I have always adored film noir, noir fiction, and mysteries. I've been fascinated with the femme fatale, often seen as "the lady in red." I began this project in an attempt to write a classic hard-boiled detective story- but from the viewpoint of the "the lady in red." I set this story in my beloved home of Chicago which is the perfect setting for a modern noir and all-to-often overlooked. Written over the course of 5 years this novel has come to mean so much to me. I can only hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
