I've just submitted Dead Giveaway by Brenda Novak to the step one page. Kurzy 
gave it a 99.81 rating. Page breaks have been protected, and headers stripped.

The book ends abruptly, but I did ask a sighted person to check it, before 
submitting, and that really is how the book ends.

Here's a synopsis for you:

The Reverend Lee Barker went missing nineteen years ago... And the people of 
Stillwater, Mississippi, believe they know why. They're convinced he was 
murdered-by his stepson Clay Montgomery. But only Clay-and his mother and 
sisters-can say for sure.They were the only ones there that fateful night, the 
only ones who know what really happened. And they're not talking.


Allie McCormick is a cold-case detective from Chicago. After a particularly 
difficult divorce, she's returned to Stillwater with her six-year-old daughter 
to find the peace she once knew in her hometown, and to work for the local 
police force while she's starting over. But when Clay's powerful enemies join 
forces to put him behind bars, Allie feels duty bound to uncover the truth. Her 
instincts tell her he didn't murder the Reverend Lee Barker.


Maybe Clay's a dark and brooding man with more than his share of secrets, but 
he was just sixteen at the time. And he's not a cold-blooded killer. At least, 
that's what Allie believes-until she finds proof that behind the preacher's 
pious demeanor lurked the heart of a monster.


Then she has to ask herself whether justice has already been done....


Women will starve in silence until new stories are created which confer on them 
the power of naming themselves.
