ELLICOTT CITY, Md. - Feb. 22, 2018 - PRLog -- TouchPoint Press is excited to announce the release of author Karen Neary Smithson's new novel, Death in Disguise. This book is sure to give readers everything they want from a murder mystery.

Teenage girls are being killed in Los Angeles – four in one week to be exact. But the latest victim isn't like the others; she's not a runaway or a prostitute, but a nanny working for a celebrity couple.

This has Sibeal "Beth" Getty puzzled. Beth is an Irish-born fashion model who was gifted with an mysterious sixth sense, and she was acquainted with the nanny and knew of her desire to become an actress. The motive for the deaths haunt Beth and after reading the nanny's stolen diary, she becomes hell-bent on solving the mystery surrounding the murdered teens. The problem is that she doesn't know the first thing about carrying out a murder investigation…that's her detective husband's specialty. With a healthy amount of determination and her intuition on overdrive, Beth forges onward. She begins to link unconnected details and falls into a tangled web of deception that makes it clear that nothing is as it seems.

Help comes from an unexpected source when Beth's self-centered actress friend offers a lead and a hand in solving the crime. As Beth closes in on finding the murderer's true identity, will she end up being the next victim on the killer's list?
