Like the political novel, Charlie Wilson's War, (converted into a highly successful film), A Personal Agenda examines a contemporary phenomenon that is taking place beneath America's political veneer, but having broad socio-political implications. Set largely on Capitol Hill, A Personal Agenda explores the sources of intra-racial tensions among native black Americans and black immigrants to the United States, opening a window on a less well known prejudice among these groups and its insiduous effects. While long an open secret among native black Americans and black immigrants to the United States from Africa and the Caribbean, most Americans are unaware that similar tensions exist among these groups. These tensions and rivalries have been examined from a sociological/academic perspective, but A Personal Agenda is the first novel to place this phenomenon in a fictional context, where the issues are examined from the perspective of a black American immigrant in political America. The novel provides an authentic, behind-the-scenes view of how Capitol Hill and Washington movers and shakers wheel and deal. Like the recent debate debate among black Americans as to whether Presidential candidate, Barack Obama was black enough to represent them, the novel demonstrates that the issue of race and its variations remains a salient and controversial topic in the United States.

Elizabeth Avery could easily be the girl next door. But what she has planned will make your blood run cold. At first glance, the crimes appear random. Arson. Theft. Fraud. Murder. But these are more than random crimes. They’re moves in an increasingly deadly game. And the one element they have in common: a woman who is gorgeous, clever . . . and lethal. Elizabeth Avery has a winsome smile and flawless figure, but underneath is a heart of ice. She’s a master manipulator, convincing strangers to do the unthinkable. And she orchestrates it all without getting too close. Until now. When Elizabeth ruthlessly disposes of an inquisitive young reporter, her crime catches the attention of Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce, FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges, and crime reporter Cassidy Shaw. They know they’re dealing with a cold-blooded murderer who could strike at any time. What they don’t know is that they’re already on a first-name basis with the killer. And one of them may be next on her list.

Two friends form a detective agency—and must solve their first murder case—in this “sharp-witted debut” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) that is the first adventure in a brand-new middle grade mystery series set at a 1930s boarding school. Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are best friends at Deepdean School for Girls, and they both have a penchant for solving mysteries. In fact, outspoken Daisy is a self-described Sherlock Holmes, and she appoints wallflower Hazel as her own personal Watson when they form their own (secret!) detective agency. The only problem? They have nothing to investigate. But that changes once Hazel discovers the body of their science teacher, Miss Bell—and the body subsequently disappears. She and Daisy are certain a murder must have taken place, and they can think of more than one person with a motive. Determined to get to the bottom of the crime—and to prove that it happened—before the killer strikes again, Hazel and Daisy must hunt for evidence, spy on their suspects, and use all the cunning, scheming, and intuition they can muster. But will they succeed? And can their friendship stand the test? Previously published as Murder Most Unladylike in the UK.
