Praise for Dead Dead Girls

“Tightly paced, razor sharp, and with a wonderful no-nonsense protagonist, Dead Dead Girls made me fly through the pages. Ms Afia is one to watch.”—Evie Dunmore, USA Today bestselling author of A Rogue of One’s Own
“Debut author Nekesa Afia brings 1920s Harlem to life in this twisty tale of murder and betrayal where nothing and no one is as it seems.”–Victoria Thompson USA Today Bestselling Author of Murder on Wall Street
“’Though she be but little, she is fierce.’ Shakespeare might as well have been describing Louise Lloyd, the flawed yet fantastic protagonist in Afia’s debut set in 1920s Harlem. I loved the world that Afia created and can’t wait to follow Lou and her friends on their next adventure. Come for the wonderfully diverse and twisty mystery, stay for the amazing 20s slang and fashion.”–Mia P. Manansala, author of Arsenic and Adobo
“A wholly original, unputdownable thrill ride of a debut from a writer to watch. You heard it here: Louise Lloyd is about to become your new favorite protagonist. Intensely paced and masterfully rendered, Dead Dead Girls is a glittering, irresistible mystery.”–Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here
“Finally, the Jazz Age heroine we deserve! You’ll never forget Louise Lovie Lloyd, the fast-dancing, even faster talking protagonist at the center of this tightly-plotted mystery. Come for the music, stay for the murder.” –Eliza Jane Brazier, author of If I Disappear
“Dead Dead Girls expertly combines killer suspense with a heroine to die for….Debut author Nekesa Afia expertly creates an intricate mystery in a lush setting with a strong female main character that is so captivating I’d read a whole book of her doing nothing more exciting than baking a cake. Dead Dead Girls is a must read!”-Olivia Blacke, author of Killer Content
