DATE: Thursday, 24 October 2019
TIME: 0700 hours
WEATHER TODAY: Mid 90s. Air quality poor. Evening storms.
DISPLAY ON WALL: Wake-up News
“Good morning, everyone. I’m Suzanne Price.
“First, the news from the nation. The federal government says, ‘No hoax, no conspiracy, but still no definitive answers.’
“The administration denies suppressing portions of the commission report on the November 2012 close encounter between NORAD fighter jets and the black boomerang-shaped UFO that appeared over the Mojave Desert, creating worldwide awe and panic before disappearing in a blinding flash of light.
“In Las Vegas, preparations are under way for the now-annual spectacular celebration of that close encounter.
“However, a warning from alien invasion survivalists, who say this seventh anniversary will be the year the spacecraft returns leading an armada. Survivalists plan to retreat to their bunkers on November 2. Gun shop owners report sales of firearms are up, as they are every year as the anniversary approaches.
“Meanwhile, the National Weather Service says another eruption of solar flares could cause more communication and power disruptions early next week.
“Forest fires in both Canada and breakaway nation New France continue to burn out of control, sending smoke southward.
“Scientists taking part in a climate change conference in Philadelphia disagree about the explanation for the significant improvement in the acidity levels of the world’s oceans. ‘It shouldn’t be happening,’ an MIT oceanographer said. ‘Nothing in anyone’s data predicted this turnaround. But I think we can safely rule out divine intervention and UFO babies.’
“Out on the presidential campaign trail, a political firestorm erupts as Republican front-runner Janet Cortez accuses independent candidate Howard Miller of ‘rallying angry, frightened people to commit hate crimes.’ During an arena speech yesterday, Miller called on several thousand supporters to ‘reclaim America for Americans’ and ‘restore our way of life.’ Cortez says Miller is ‘morally responsible’ for the attacks that have been escalating since he announced his third-party candidacy.
“Now, here at home … a chilling scenario posed by a local crime beat threader. Is there an ‘Albany Ripper’ in our midst?”
“Dammit!” Hannah McCabe jumped back as the grapefruit juice from her overturned glass splashed across the countertop, covering the still-visible display of the nutrition content of her father’s breakfast.
“Bring up the sound,” he said. “I want to hear this.”
“Half a second, Pop. Hands full.” McCabe shoved her holster out of the way and touched CLEAN UP before the stream of juice could run off the counter and onto the tile floor.
“… Following last night’s Common Council meeting, threader Clarence Redfield interrupted a statement by Detective Wayne Jacoby, the

Advance Praise for The Red Queen Dies

"A puzzle-twisty police procedural from an expert that I read with delight… Pitch-perfect. Bailey puts Albany on the map of clever crime novel settings." 
--Cathy Pickens, author of Southern Fried

“Frankie Y. Bailey deals a near perfect hand in The Red Queen Dies. If murder and political mayhem are on your reading menu, you’ll eat this book up.”
--Reed Farrel Coleman, three-time Shamus Award-winning author of Gun Church

"Fast, smart, different, this future-procedural rocks. I couldn't put it down and I demand a sequel!"
--Meredith Anthony, author of Ladykiller

“Oh so very clever. I loved this book."
--Jane K. Cleland, author of Lethal Treasure

"Fans will be thrilled by Frankie Y. Bailey’s newest mystery, The Red Queen Dies, as they follow Detective Hannah (Hank) McCabe through a futuristic police investigation with more twists and turns than Alice experienced down the rabbit hole. A great read. Don’t miss it!"
--Julie Hyzy, New York Times bestselling author of the White House Chef Mysteries and the Manor House Mystery series
