R. Jean Reid

The Nell McGraw series is currently in limbo. The publisher decided to end their mystery line entirely and I have not yet found another publisher. I was close to finished with the draft of the 3rd book when this happened, so I'm ever hopefull that it will see the light of day sometime in the future. 

R.Jean Reid's second book is PERDITION out in June, 2017,  and her first book ROOTS OF MURDER was published by Midnight Ink in July, 2016. Reid Currently lives in New Orleans and grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. 

PERDITION: "Part mystery, part thriller, part social commentary, and all impossible to put down."—Kirkus Reviews

"Reid's exciting debut, filled with action and philosophical musings about the enduring weight of the past, will make you both sad and mad."—Kirkus Reviews 

"Roots of Murder combines a gripping mystery with well-honed literary fiction."—Mystery Scene
