As Directed by Kathleen Valenti
A Maggie O’Malley Mystery #3
Henery Press | March 12, 2019

In the shadow of a past fraught with danger and tainted by loss, former pharmaceutical researcher Maggie O’Malley is rebuilding her life, trading test tubes for pill bottles as she embarks on a new career at the corner drugstore.

But as she spreads her wings, things begin to go terribly wrong. A customer falls ill in the store. Followed by another. And then more.

The specter of poisoning arises, conjuring old grudges, past sins, buried secrets and new suspicions from which no one is immune.

As Maggie and her best friend Constantine begin to investigate, they discover that some of the deadliest doses come from the most unexpected places.

    1. Hi Megan! Thanks for the question–and for sharing!!

      I’d say it’s a traditional mystery with a little thriller thrown in. It has a few cozy-ish elements, like humor and an amateur sleuth, but otherwise not very cozy!
