When New Seattle's most popular resident--charismatic Delilah--takes a tumble off her balcony, the blame for the seeming accident lands on nineteen-year-old Scottie. More interested in finding out who her parents were than searching for a personal brand, Scottie's already scraping the bottom of the town popularity list. This will send her down to last place. And that means a short ride out into the frozen wasteland which surrounds the dome of New Seattle.
While the town's social stars scuffle for the open spot at the top, Scottie, aided by her "Watson," the personal assistant her brain chip provides, scrambles to save herself and find the real culprit. What she unearths will shake the very foundation of her world...and place her squarely in the crosshairs of a shadowy killer intent on clearing a path to number one.
"Neve Maslakovic's story is a standout... All the Whys of Delilah's Demise is about more than why Delilah died. What will it take to find home, love, and safety in a manipulated world? Scottie's journey to find out reaches into the reader's heart... A thought-provoking story that marries high technology, social inspection, mystery, and dystopian sci-fi under one cover in a seamless manner to keep a wide audience guessing about the outcome." -- D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"An interesting juxtaposition of lighthearted murder mystery and deadly dystopia. I don't know that I've read anything quite like it." - Julie Reeser, author of Beak, Full of Tongue and Terracotta Pomegranate
