A twisty whodunit set in an all too possible future where brand is everything.

Scottie is already scraping the bottom of New Seattle’s popularity list and things are about to get worse. Charismatic Delilah, the number one, tumbles to her death from a balcony. The person who failed to alert Delilah about the wood rot in the balcony railing? Scottie.

The popularity list will update in a week and Scottie better get cracking on coming up with a way to salvage her standing. Hitting the bottom means exile to the frozen wasteland outside the city gates.

But Scottie is convinced someone murdered Delilah. She suspects one of the Tenners, the top ten people in New Seattle. Getting close to them will be all but impossible for a low-lister, one determined to go it alone. Scottie’s got friends but she’s not that big on trust. Her only ally and confidante is her AI chip, Cece.

The smart move: work on her brand. The dangerous move: hunt down a killer.

Neve Maslakovic’s story is a standout… Scottie’s journey reaches into the reader’s heart” — D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review


Thanks to the time travel lab at St. Sunniva University, history is no longer a mystery. But when the beloved co-inventor of the university’s time machine is inexplicably smeared across time, academic exploration and the future of St. Sunniva is thrown into doubt.

As assistant to the dean of science, Julia Olsen is tasked with helping Campus Security Chief Nate Kirkland quietly examine this rare mishap…then, just as quietly, make it go away. When the investigation indicates that the professor’s disappearance may have been a murder, those inspecting the incident unwittingly find themselves caught in a deadly cover-up — one in which history itself is the weapon.

On a foggy Monday in 1986, the universe suddenly, without warning, bifurcated. Fast-forward to 35 years later: Felix Sayers is a culinary writer living in San Francisco of Universe A who spends his days lunching at Coconut Café and dreaming of penning an Agatha Christie-style mystery. But everything changes when his Aunt Henrietta dies, leaving Felix a photograph which proves that he was born before the bifurcation. He has an ‘alter’ in Universe B. 

Panicked that his mystery novel may have been penned already by his alter, Felix crosses to San Francisco B and proceeds to flagrantly violate the rules of both worlds by snooping around his alter’s life. But when he narrowly escapes a hit-and-run, it becomes clear that someone knows he’s crossed over… and whoever it is isn’t happy about it. Now Felix must uncover the truth about his alter, the events of one Monday, and a wayward rubber duck before his time in both worlds runs out.
