It's been a long time since I published my last book. I used my real name, David Stukas, as author for my last series which included Someone Killed His Boyfriend, Going Down for the Count, Wearing Black to the White Party, and Biceps of Death. My new series, set in Palm Springs, California, features a new main character, Amanda Thorne, a real estate agent, who moves to Palm Springs with her husband of 7 years, only to find out he's gay. They divorce but remain eternal soulmates. Everything is on track as Amanda tries to rebuild her new life in the city in the desert, that is, until the body of a prominent ecologist turns up in one of her listings. A ecologist, that is, who is opposing development of one of the largest (and most scenic...and sensitive) tracts of land in Palm Springs. The title: Three Bedrooms, Two Baths, One Very Dead Corpse. Out this fall from Kensington Books.
