ABOUT THE BOOK[Text Wrapping Break]In Kris Calvin's debut mystery One Murder More, a beautiful legislative aide is found stabbed to death in California's Capitol building 

Maren Kane, a lobbyist for a fledgling Sacramento-based toy company, is in the midst of a legislative fight that could make or break her career. She doesn’t have time for a coffee break let alone involvement in a murder investigation.  

But when police arrest Maren's colleague for the crime, she's certain they have the wrong man. The cops suspect a crime of passion—love gone wrong. Maren knows that in the capital, money and power drive all things tragic and scandalous. Sex and love are little more than window-dressing. But will she be able to prove her theory—and free her friend—before she becomes the next victim? 

  • Kris emerged the top vote getter from a field of eight in a hotly contested election for school board in South Pasadena.  Her experience gave her a close up look at how politicians, advocates, and interest groups function and inspired her fiction. 
  • Her work as a children’s advocate in state government and her lifelong commitment to civil rights. (Her father, Allen Calvin, worked closely with Martin Luther King Jr.) Kris has created a diverse cast of characters in her novel, which closely resembles California today. 
  • Her experience juggling roles as a CEO of a 5,000-member association, a first time author, and mother.
