When Maggie begins asking questions, he reappears - dead in the river. But she's already learned too much. Someone's out to silence her too.Armed with her .38 and a nip of gin, Maggie closes in on a killer as a mobster offers a hint, a cop unsettles her with his chemistry, and a woman with deadly potential plays a game by her own rules.

NO GAME FOR A DAME launched her Maggie Sullivan mystery series featuring a Depression era private eye in Dayton, Ohio.

Myers graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism and worked as a reporter and feature writer on city dailies in Michigan and Ohio. She also has taught novel writing at writers conferences across the country.
