New Mystery Series Based In KC Area

Murder mystery fans: a new series of police crime novels launches next week, starring the tough but sensitive Skeet Bannion

She's a retired KCPD homicide detective who wants to get away by becoming the police chief on a small-town college campus. 

Skeet Bannion is the creation of local author Linda Rodriguez, who won a national competition with this first novel. Every Last Secret is now being published by St. Martin's Press, and has already been recommended as a must-read for this month by Barnes & Noble's mystery editor.

Linda Rodriguez joined KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross in studio to talk about Every Last Secret, which merges the mystery genre with some witty observations about life on a college town.

Rodriguez will be officially launching the book at a reading  on Tuesday, April 24 at the Central Branch of the Kansas City Public Library
