BV Lawson

Author BV Lawsonabout this book: When crime consultant Scott Drayco's long-AWOL mother returns and is charged with murder, he becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth even though everyone tells him to walk away. As he falls deeper into secrets, lies and cons, he begins to suspect the case may be all part of an elaborate scam ... where the only one being fooled is Drayco himself.

ELEGY IN SCARLET was a finalist for the Daphne Award, Mainstream Mystery/Suspense and also the Library Journal Indie Ebook Awards, Best Mystery, with Library Journal adding "This labyrinthine novel is great for those who love to be as intellectually frenzied as the detectives in the stories they read. They'll be eagerly flipping back to look for Lawson's strategically placed clues."

Author BV Lawson is a life-long mystery reader whose librarian mother got her hooked early on. BV brings elements from her music, journalism, and poetry background to her writing, which has netted four Derringer Award nominations (with one win in 2012), and gained accolades from the American Independent Writers, Maryland Writers Association, and the Shamus, Silver Falchion, and Daphne Awards for her Scott Drayco stories. BV currently lives in Virginia with her husband and enjoys flying above the Chesapeake Bay in a little Cessna.
