Yesterday's Fatal, the mystery novel by Jan Brogan
Read the First Chapter


Rhode Island reporter Hallie Ahern needs her next story to land on the front page if she wants to keep her job. The new execs at theMorning Chronicle are cutting back the staff, and Hallie, the newest member of the investigative team, could be one of the first to go.

A one-car accident, even one that resulted in the death of a young mother of three, normally wouldn’t be front-page material. But because Hallie witnessed it while coming home late on a rainy spring night, she can’t get it out of her mind. With a little luck and a lot of digging, Hallie’s good instincts put her on the trail of a much bigger story. And to get it, she’ll to have to take some risks, but this time the stakes couldn’t be any higher or more deadly.

A breakneck ride through Providence’s crime world and a powerful look at Hallie’s daily struggle with gambling addiction, Yesterday’s Fatal will have readers holding on tight.

Yesterday's Fatal is now in bookstores everywhere.
