New from Down & Out Books: A DARK HOMAGE by Wendy Tyson

TAMPA, Fla. - Jan. 20, 2020 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that A DARK HOMAGE, the first in a new mystery series by Wendy Tyson featuring PI Delilah Percy Powers, was published on January 20, 2020 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


A sordid sex tape. A venture capital firm. A secret society of women. A Catholic nun. All have one connection in common: Miriam Cross.

Miriam Cross, author, feminist, and philanthropist, disappears from her Philadelphia home. A year later, a lonely recluse named Emily Cray is brutally murdered in her bed in a small Pennsylvania town.

The police discover that Emily Cray and Miriam Cross were one and the same, but if they know who killed Miriam, they're not sharing. Miriam's niece wants answers. She turns to the one woman she knows she can trust—private investigator Delilah Percy Powers.

As Delilah and her staff of female detectives—a militant homemaker, an ex-headmistress and a former stripper—delve into Miriam's life, they become submerged in an underworld of unfathomable cruelty and greed with implications that go far beyond the gruesome death of one woman or the boundaries of one country. Eventually Miriam's fight for justice becomes Delilah's own…and Delilah's obsession with finding the truth proves just as deadly.

Praise for A DARK HOMAGE …

"A Dark Homage is masterful. Wendy Tyson's novel is more than a compelling mystery, it's a detailed, honest examination of tough-as-nails women who refuse to be intimidated, no matter how dark the story turns. Tyson skillfully turns from humor to tension in the span of a single sentence, and readers will be left wanting to know what happens next with Delilah and her team. A must read." —E.A. Aymar, author of The Unrepentant
