Tuesday, August 12, 2014 - 7:00pm
A sensational debut thriller featuring an unforgettable heroine who just might have murdered her mother
Former “It Girl” Janie Jenkins is acerbic, whip smart, and fresh out of prison. Ten years ago, at the height of her glamour and fame, she was incarcerated for the murder of her mother, a philanthropist best known for her string of rich husbands. Now, released on a technicality, Janie chops off her trademark hair, determined to chase down the one lead she has about her mother’s killer. The only problem? Janie doesn’t know if she’s the one she’s looking for.
In an isolated South Dakota town whose secrets rival Janie’s own, with the unwitting help of the locals, she pieces together a shocking picture of her mother’s supposedly pristine past. On the run from the press, the police, and possibly even a murderer, Janie is forced to choose between the anonymity she craves and the truth she so desperately needs.
A gripping debut novel, Dear Daughter ($26.95) follows every twist and turn as Janie unravels the mystery of what happened the night her mother died—whatever the cost.

A graduate of Harvard University, Elizabeth Little is the author of two well-regarded nonfiction works, Biting the Wax Tadpole and Trip of the Tongue. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their son.
