In 1969, during the week of the Manson murders and Woodstock, the intrepid amateur sleuth, Austin Starr, flies across the continent with her infant in tow to support a friend suspected of murdering women's liberation activists in Seattle and Vancouver. Austin's former CIA trainer warns that an old enemy has contracted a hit on her. Her anxious husband demands that she give up her quest and fly back to him. How much should Austin risk when tracking the killer puts her and her baby's life in danger?
Texas author Kay Kendall is releasing "Rainy Day Women" on July 7, marking the sequel to her widely praised debut mystery, "Desolation Row." Kendall's short story, "Strangers on a Plane," launched in January 2015 on Kindle as part of a collection of 13 stories called The Promethean Saga.
A reformed public relations executive who won international awards for her work, Kendall lives in Houston with her Canadian-born husband, three house rabbits and spaniel Wills. She has degrees in Russian and Soviet history, and her book titles show she's a Bob Dylan buff. Kendall is also a member of the Austin chapter of Sisters in Crime.
