Orphan Black meets The Office in The Matildas, a quirky new mystery novel with a unique premise, featuring Matilda Garrigan as a reluctant amateur sleuth in way over her head.


Tiny book publisher Mitotic Press takes novels from one Earth and publishes them on a parallel Earth, thanks to a portal in a basement conference room. They're a team of book thieves with a pretty sweet (and very secret) business--until someone anonymously threatens to reveal Mitotic's portal to both Earths.


Matilda Garrigan quit her dream job at Mitotic Press after she was too late returning from a business trip to the other Earth to prevent her girlfriend's death. Mattie's good at running away from her problems, and she's certainly no detective, but when Mitotic comes calling for help, she reluctantly channels her inner Nancy Drew to find out who's behind the threat.


Mattie puts together a ragtag team of former co-workers to investigate, but her detective work leads nowhere—and, predictably, she gives up. But when more clues are found, and bodies start piling up, Mattie realizes that the mastermind has to be her girlfriend——


except she's already dead.


To keep Mitotic's portal a secret—and finally tell the perfect woman how she really feels—Mattie faces pissed ex-lovers, terrible music, identical killers from multiple Earths, and a mystery that grows weirder by the day.
