Deidre Wheaton's greatest obstacle in life is her adopted sister Alex. But when Deidre decides murder is the only way to free herself of Alex's tyranny, she sets down a path that could lead to her own destruction.

Setting the table for murder...

I gathered up dishes, napkins, linen, and silverware and carefully arranged them on the black lacquered tray I used to carry everything to the conservatory. Then I began to arrange the imported tea biscuits Alex always insisted upon onto a plate. The process was oddly soothing. Each soft thud of a biscuit clinking against the fine china was like the echo of my heart.

Suddenly the comforting quiet of the kitchen was broken by the scream of the teakettle. I had been too focused on what I was doing to notice the warning snufflings as the water neared its boil. Now the fierce shriek was like a blow. I jerked backwards, knocking both cups off the tray and onto the floor with a crash.

Clumsy, Dee, very clumsy.

Alex's familiar taunt trembled in the air like a ghostly whisper.

Only Alex wasn't a ghost -- yet.

Professional Reviews

From Foreword Magazine
"Ekaterine Nikas delivers crisp, calculated murder in "Fatal Tears," a story of battling siblings. In this tale, the twist one usually expects at the end of a mystery becomes a spiral and keeps the reader in a spin." -- Carol Lynn Stewart of Foreword Magazine.
