Silver Falchion Awards 2016 Winner: Best First Novel, Best Political Thriller, Best Female Detective/Sleuth In Kris Calvin's debut mystery One Murder More, a beautiful legislative aide is found stabbed to death in California's Capitol building. Maren Kane, a lobbyist for a fledgling Sacramento-based toy company, is in the midst of a legislative fight that could make or break her career. She doesn't have time for a coffee break let alone involvement in a murder investigation. But when police arrest Maren's colleague for the crime, she's certain they have the wrong man. The cops suspect a crime of passion--love gone wrong. Maren knows that in the capital, money and power drive all things tragic and scandalous. Sex and love are little more than window-dressing. But will she be able to prove her theory--and free her friend--before she becomes the next victim?
