Sixteen-year-old Emmy Danvers was just trying to write a halfway decent romance novel when a senile old man mumbled a cryptic warning, tackled her to the ground in the middle of Starbucks, and...died right on top of her. Unfortunately for Emmy, the incident wasn't quite as random as she thought, and it turns out that the old man might have taken a bullet for her. Not only that, he slipped something into her pocket: a digital tablet containing secrets that she has no idea how to unlock, but that others are ready to kill for. Thrust into a world where nothing is as it seems, Emmy must try to track down her absentee father, deal with a flirtatious bad boy who may or may not be on her side, and, oh yeah, stay one step ahead of the killers lurking in the shadows of an exclusive prep school. The old man's parting advice to "trust nobody" doesn't sound so crazy after all.... "Bates weaves a fast-paced, heart-in-throat thriller!" --Mary Elizabeth Summer, author of Trust Me, I'm Lying and Trust Me, I'm Trouble "Dial Em for Murder kept me up--with all the lights on--long past my bedtime." --Tracy Deebs, author of Doomed and The Tempest series, and coauthor of The Hero Agenda series "Marni Bates's Dial Em for Murder has it all: quirky humor, pulse-quickening action, and a sassy heroine you'll love."--Emily McKay, author of The Farm series "A funny and engaging read that will keep you guessing." --Paula Stokes, author of Liars, Inc.
