A novel by

 
 
A thirst for knowledge puts the fear of death in Aggie Mundeen "an appealing heroine with a self-deprecating wit and a determination to never grow old" (Library Journal).

Skirting forty, Aggie Mundeen blasts off to the local university to study the genetics of aging. In addition to providing youthful hints for readers of her column, "Stay Young with Aggie," she is doggedly determined to arrest her aging process.

Despite conflicts with her professor, she learns about the Human Genome Project and DNA. When she discovers a dead body, Detective Sam reminds her not to "help" with the investigation. But dangerously curious and programmed to prod, she races to solve the crime, winds up the prime suspect, and is on target to become the next campus corpse.

"Hurrah for Aggie Mundeen, an effervescent heroine who finds trouble wherever she goes even when the initial pursuit is purely intellectual. Aggie's pluck, humor, intelligence and loving heart will always keep her young and always make readers smile." - Carolyn Hart, New York Times - bestselling author of the Bailey Ruth Ghost Novels

"The perfect combination of brains and heart. A tight mystery, an irrepressible heroine, and superb writing." - James W. Ziskin, Anthony Award - winning author of the Ellie Stone Mysteries

"Smart, But Dead features an impetuous, warm-hearted heroine, blessed with an insatiable curiosity, passion for learning and an unquenchable zest for life." - Mystery People

"Will keep you guessing until the last page. Very well-written and excellent storyline. Highly recommended!" - Obsessed Book Reviews
