Today we're launching Gail's new mystery thriller novel Kangaroo Court! It's the story of a freelance online journalist/stay-at-home mom who investigates a character assassination on social media, and is Book 4 in the Media Mysteries series. Here's the detailed description: Character assassination on social media — Assault with a deadly weapon
Along the rugged coast of central California, the intimate life of star quarterback Jesse Tuvornay has come into the crosshairs.
At the gym, shopping, crossing town in his SUV, or on a cozy date with his supermodel girlfriend—his every move is watched, documented, and posted. But this isn’t publicity—it’s violation. And the scandal is spreading faster than a virus.
In this domestic suspense thriller from award-winning author Gail Hulnick, Jesse Tuvornay has become the target of a bitter social media troll. But when her friend, supermodel Iris Kendall, is dragged into the spreading swamp of online slime, journalist Chelan Montgomery steps in to uncover the source of this character assassination.
Chelan can’t say no to Iris and Jesse. But how can she squeeze their case into her few free hours as she cares for her two babies?
Step by step, Chelan inches closer to the identity of Jesse’s enemy. But can she move fast enough? Will the football star and the supermodel have to pay the price?
When a new photograph appears to show the quarterback stepping way out of bounds on his night off, Jesse is ready to take matters into his own hands. Can Chelan untangle the threads and lure the troll out of the shadows before the star ruins his own career?
