Hiding the truth never felt so right.
Private Investigator Jorja Knight’s best friend, personal chef Gab Rizzo, asks her to help cater a private event, but the night takes a macabre turn when a guest fails to survive the meal they serve. Worse yet, Gab’s name ends up on the suspect list.
The victim is a smart, upstanding citizen, and one of the nicest guys his friends and family know. So why would someone want him dead? Especially just weeks before his company launches the miracle weight-loss pill the world’s waiting for. Jorja delves into a case that grows more baffling by the day and realizes there is more at stake than Gab’s reputation.
Fearing there is something wrong with the supplement, Jorja races to find the truth, buried beneath the clandestine affairs, old grudges and lies of the soon-to-be rich and famous. But nothing prepares her for what she finds.
Shaken to her very core, Jorja must decide whether to expose the truth and shatter more lives or keep what she knows hidden.
All About Alice Bienia
They say we find our happiness by following our unique talents and passions. As a child, my passions were reading to escape the monotony of childhood in a small town, skipping rope, eating peas from my mother’s garden and trying to get my brothers to laugh so hard they’d spit their milk out at dinner.
Later I developed a passion for nature, photography, motorcycles, and coffee. I went to university and emerged with a Bachelor of Science in geology. After graduation, I happily investigated the earth’s nooks and crannies, solving the mystery of where earth’s elusive but treasured deposits were buried. My work in remote regions of Canada honed my insatiable curiosity, fueled my imagination and deepened my desire to learn.
Then came technology, and enhanced opportunities to problem solve, innovate, automate, and create effective and highly productive ways of doing things. I spoke at conferences, wrote all manner of technical reports, developed training material and web content. The need to explore, learn and create continued to burn.
I now write full time. Still passionate about reading, photography, motorcycles, fresh peas and coffee, I apply my creativity, imagination and the all important, ‘head down, butt in chair,’ skill I’ve acquired along the way to create challenging crimes for my protagonist to investigate and solve – while throwing her crappy little life obstacles to overcome, just to keep it real. Best of all, I’m still learning and exploring. After all, that’s what writing fiction is all about – going places where I’ve never been before and returning to tell the tale.
