“In She Murdered Me with Science, Dave Boop has created a wonderful, alternate-history thriller. Boop deftly weaves together influences like Phillip K. Dick and Raymond Chandler, marries them to the grand tradition pf pulp adventure stories, to produce a story that is a joy to read. He’s definitely an author to watch for in the future, and She Murdered Me with Science promises much for his career.” Mike Stackpole, New York Bestselling author of I, Jedi.
