As our presidential election is in high gear, New York Times bestselling author Maggie Sefton is releasing her new novel, Deadly Politics, the first in a new murder mystery series about Washington, D.C. insider Molly Malone. Driven from D.C. years ago by political backstabbing, scandals, and personal heartbreak, Molly thinks she's seen it all. But the brutal murder of her niece, a Congressional staffer, brings Molly up close and personal with Washington's darker side after 20 years spent running away from her past. Her insistence on investigating the crime puts Molly right in the crosshairs of a shadowy group that's orchestrating a political plot...and killing anyone who gets in the way. Molly is about to see, for the first time, just how powerful and destructive the political world can be. Deadly Politics is sure to leave readers eager to get their hands on the next book in the series!
Like the main character, Maggie Sefton was born and raised in Arlington, Virginia. Having grown up so close to the capital, she quickly became infatuated with the world of politics, and she's the perfect person to give readers a glimpse at life inside the Beltway.
"Politics is a blood sport in Washington, D.C., and only the strongest survive," says the author. "Like the politicians she's rubbed shoulders with for a lifetime, Molly is smart and tough and savvy enough to stay out of trouble – most of the time."
Throughout her life, she has worked at a variety of jobs, including a CPA and a real estate agent, before discovering her deep passion for writing. Sefton (http://www.maggiesefton.com) has written a mystery series in the past, with every book in the series landing on the Barnes & Noble Top Ten Bestselling Mysteries list, and she made the New York Times Bestseller list in 2011 with her novel Unraveled.
