About the Author

Kelly Oliver is W. Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University, where she also holds appointments in the departments of African-American Diaspora Studies, Film Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies. She is the author of more than one hundred articles, fifteen scholarly books, and three novels.


"F.O.X has it all: keep-you-up-at-night pacing, Crichton-worthy plot packed with interesting insight and info, and a heckuva heroine, Jessica James, a cowboy boot wearing doctoral student transplanted from the plains of Montana to the streets of Chicago." ---Catherine Finger, author of The Jo Oliver Thrillers

"Mystery author extraordinaire Kelly Oliver has hit another one out of the park with F.O.X. ... Oliver has once again made female power quirky and fun--and oh so potent and riveting."--Samuel Marquis, author of Altar of Resistance

Oliver juggles the many moving parts of her interconnected plots with the same smooth skill and breakneck pacing that characterized previous books in this series. That said, it's not necessary to read the other installments in sequence, as this volume stands quite well on its own. This book's many action sequences are unfailingly entertaining, and no matter how dire the circumstances, her characters are always ready with a wisecrack... A dark, engaging biomedical mystery with a clever, no-nonsense detective. ---Kirkus Reviews

"Kelly Oliver is a master of getting her heroine in and out of trouble while managing to both entertain and yes, even educate her readers."-- Charles Salzberg, author of The Henry Swann Mysteries

"Like all Kelly Oliver novels, from page one, the story pulls you in and won't let you go. Fast moving and action driven, this is one book you won't want to string over a couple of nights of reading. After dinner, send the boyfriend home and buckle down for a bumpy ride."-- Clay Stafford, founder of Killer Nashville
