Dead Air Cover final lr

Dead Air is book #2 in the “Behind the Mic Mysteries” and is available in both paperback and e-book. The audio book for Dead Air will be produced summer 2017.

The second in the series of “Behind the Mic Mysteries,” our young radio crime reporter, Lisa Powers, covers a double cop shooting that tears the community apart. The cold case is a 15-year-old sexual assault involving a child, and Lisa is determined to help the now 19-year-old woman move forward in her life. Lisa’s “podcast,” which she writes at night for fun after covering gritty crime stories during the day, is a “film noir” style story of a 1940s private eye and a dame. Only L. N. Pane, P.I. is the dame and the gentleman seeks help finding out why someone is out to kill him.

BUY NOW! FADE OUT BY LAURIE FAGEN ON AMAZON

The Fade Out audio book, complete with professional actors and sound effects in the podcast episodes, will be available in 2017.

Journalist/author Laurie Fagen uses her own background in print and on-air reporting to create Lisa Powers , a radio reporter who solves some of the crimes she covers – so murderers beware. What I found especially exciting was the wealth of insider information Fagen shares about the inner workings of radio newsrooms and podcasts. FADE OUT is a veritable gold mine of  a mystery.

In Equalizer, Lisa reports on a shocking homicide that halts a white-collar money-laundering trial, but finds herself facing down the killer. She hunts for the murderer of a Jane Doe found in the desert decades ago that may have something to do with a Native American moccasin maker. And there’s a smell of death in her “Haunted Hallows” mystery theatre podcast, leading to yet another mystery to be solved.
