"With Derailed, debut author Mary Keliikoa introduces us to single mom and second generation Portland PI Kelly Pruett on her very first murder investigation.

--Tracy Clark, author of Borrowed Time
"A request from beyond the grave, a deaf daughter, a failed marriage, and a murder--Keliikoa mixes up the perfect recipe for a great new mystery series.
