The Next One to Fall.

Hilary Davidson’s The Damage Done (Forge, 2010) — called a “razor sharp mystery debut” by Publishers Weekly — won the 2011 Anthony Award for Best First Novel and the Crimespree Award for Best First Novel. The book was also a finalist for the Arthur Ellis and Macavity awards. Her second crime fiction novel, The Next One to Fall, is already receiving rave reviews. MysteryPeople is a big fan of Hilary's and is very happy to be able to bring her to Austin.

Travel writer Lily Moore has been persuaded by her closest friend, photographer Jesse Robb, to visit Peru with him. Jesse is convinced that the trip will lure Lily out of her dark mood and downward spiral, but Lily is haunted by betrayal and loss. At Machu Picchu, the famous Lost City of the Incas, they discover a woman clinging to life at the bottom of an ancient stone staircase. Just before the woman dies, she tells Lily the name of the man who pushed her.

But when the local police investigate, the forensic evidence they find doesn’t match up with what Lily knows. Unable to accept the official ruling of accidental death, Lily hunts down the wealthy man who was the dead woman’s traveling companion and discovers a pattern of dead and missing women in his wake.

Obsessed with getting justice for these women, Lily sets in motion a violent chain of events with devastating consequences.
