    Post-rehab, Maggie Terry is single-mindedly trying to keep her head down in New York City. There’s a madman in the White House, the subways are constantly delayed, summer is relentless, and neighborhoods all seem to blend together.

    Against this absurd backdrop, Maggie wants nothing more than to slowly re- build her life in hopes of being reunited with her daughter. But her first day on the job as a private investigator lands her in the middle of a sensational new case: actress strangled. If Maggie is going to solve this mystery, she’ll have to shake the ghosts―dead NYPD partner, vindictive ex, steadfast drug habit―that have long ruled her life.

    “Maggie Terry is inventive, boundary-pushing, and absolutely electric. It centers women and queerness in the most exciting way, within a story you’ll never want to stop reading. Sarah is a brilliant writer, who navigates fiction with all the same nuance, depth and authenticity we’ve come to expect from her groundbreaking non-fiction work. Get lost in this deeply engrossing novel. ” – Jill Soloway
