The Interstellar Jewel Heist
When she finds the body of a retired shopkeeper on the beach, a series of mysterious events draws Lady Jayla into a web of passion, terror and murder. She finally realizes that if she wants to stay alive, she must figure out who the killer is before she becomes the next target.
While dealing with this crises, she faces a slew of other problems. She needs to control her dysfunctional house-bot who thinks he's a sex-bot, and cope with Jake, her nosy boyfriend and her overprotective family. She also needs to stop the interplanetary jewel thieves looking for their missing loot who keep breaking into her shop. To make matters worse, the local and interplanetary detectives investigating the theft and murder think she either stole the jewels or that she makes excellent bait for the real thieves. Take your pick.

About Gail Daley (Fresno, California Author)
Gail Daley is a self-taught artist and writer with a background in business. An omnivorous reader, she was inspired by her son, also a writer, to finish some of the incomplete novels she had begun over the years. She is heavily involved in local art groups and fills her time reading, writing, painting in acrylics, and spending time with her husband of 40 plus years.
Currently her family is owned by two cats, a mischievous young cat called Mab (after the fairy queen of air and darkness) and a mellow Gray Princess named Moonstone. In the past, the family shared their home with many dogs, cats and a Guinea Pig, all of whom have passed over the rainbow bridge. A recent major surgery on her stomach and a bout with breast cancer has slowed her down a little, but she continues to write and paint.
