Welcome to Hamlet. Population: 192.
You can’t find it on any map, GPS or directions site. A small village tucked between a mountain and a valley, Hamlet is the sort of place where everyone knows everyone — and their business, too. There’s no television. No phones. Only one way in and, for the locals, barely any way out. The sheriff is the law, the only doctor moonlights as the coroner, and outsiders rarely come to town.
Murders are even rarer.
A treacherous storm, a flat tire and a touch of serendipity causes Tessa Sullivan and her husband Jack to stumble upon the narrow strait that leads into Hamlet. It was supposed to be a one night stop until the rain let up and Jack could figure out how to fix the tire — until Tess lands herself in the local jail cell overnight and Jack is found dead in their hotel room the next morning. There’s no doubt it was murder, but with his gentle wife having an airtight alibi, Sheriff De Angelis has to wonder: who had any cause to kill the outsider?
And was he only the first victim?

Jessica Lynch has been writing since she was 8 and wrote a short story called “Bugs Bunny Meets the Little Mermaid”, mainly because they were the only characters she could illustrate. After spending more than a decade writing fan fiction, she decided to try to write an original novel. While there are many manuscripts on her hard drive, her debut novel “Don’t Trust Me” was finally published in December 2017. It’s a mystery/thriller, which is a departure from most of her other writing. Coming soon: a paranormal romance series, as well as a foray into Greek mythology.
