Murder by the Book presents Ingrid Thoft. Ingrid Thoft will sign and discuss her second book, Identity (Putnam Adult; $26.95)
It's been a couple months since Fina's last big case–the one that exposed dark family secrets and called Fina's family loyalty into question–but there's no rest for the weary, especially when your boss is Carl Ludlow.
Renata Sanchez, a single mother by choice, wants to learn the identity of her daughter Rosie's sperm donor. A confidentiality agreement and Rosie's reticence might deter other mothers, but not Renata, nor Carl, who's convinced that lawsuits involving cryobanks and sperm donors will be "the next big thing." Fina uncovers the donor's identity, but the solution to that mystery is just the beginning: within hours of the case going public, Rosie's donor turns up dead.
Fina didn't sign on for a murder investigation, but she can't walk away from a death she may have set in motion. She digs deeper and discovers that DNA doesn't tell the whole story and sometimes, cracking that code can have deadly consequences.
She was born in Boston and is a graduate of Wellesley College. Her interest in the PI life and her desire to create a believable PI character led her to the certificate program in private investigation at the University of Washington.
She lives in Seattle with her husband.
