Originally published by Hilliard & Harris under the title “Jury of One,” “Deadly Readings” is the first in Laura Bradford’s debut Jenkins & Burns mystery series.

The Jersey Shore has always been known for warm sand, lively boardwalks, and the promise of carefree summer days. This season the small scenic town of Ocean Point, New Jersey, is not nearly as carefree as tourists would hope. The discovery of the body of a young woman is the first in a string of seemingly random and senseless murders, murders connected only by a warning from the same boardwalk fortune-teller.

It’s a crisis that puts local detective Mitch Burns on edge, and his job in jeopardy. It’s up to him to solve the crimes and protect the livelihood of the town, a livelihood that relies almost entirely on tourists. With the help of newly hired local reporter Elise Jenkins, the two step out to discover who the killer is, before another body is found.


Laura Bradford is the author of Hearse and Buggy, the first book in the Amish Mystery series published with Berkley Prime Crime/Penguin. She’s also an award-winning romance author for Harlequin American. Her third romance, Miracle Baby, was named RT Magazine's Reviewer's Choice Award Winner for Best Harlequin American of 2010. Kayla’s Daddy—her first romance—was nominated for the same award and has gone on to be translated in both Spain and Germany. Her next romance, Storybook Dad, is scheduled to be released in October 2012.
