Denise McDonald, a copywriter, blogger, and freelance writer, has completed her new book “An Advanced Degree in Murder”: a thrilling novel that follows psychology professor and pop culture junkie Ashley McKennitt as she unexpectedly becomes intertwined in a complex murder investigation. As she slowly starts to piece together the cryptic clues left behind at the murder scenes, she is determined to use her encyclopedic knowledge of music to help Detective Malone catch a killer.

Author Denise McDonald begins her novel, writing, “I was speaking to a lecture hall full of new freshmen when the homicide detective called. Back in my office after my Psychology 101 class, I checked voicemail to find a message from my college roommate’s younger brother. I knew said brother had become a cop, but last I’d heard, he was working burglary and theft. It seemed that little bro had earned his gold shield and graduated to Robbery-Homicide. Good for him. But why on earth did he want to talk to me? I picked up the phone and was starting to punch in his number when a student knocked on my open door.”

Published by Page Publishing, Denise McDonald’s heart-pounding tale intensifies as Detective Malone and his partner work frantically to find the killer and stop the rising body count. Meanwhile, the killer starts a new game: stalking Ashley.
