In her debut mystery, Una Tiers tells the tale of a murdered judge.

Fiona Gavelle had few realistic expectations when she graduated from law school.

She hated her first job in a dusty run down office.
One snowy Chicago night, she learns she was fired from her miserable job. Without an iota of support from her miserable husband, Fiona walks out.

Her luck changes at a funeral of a man she only saw once.
Fiona will entertain you although there are no car chases or running down the alley at midnight.
You will be entertained and learn a little about the law, in an entertaining way. Your friends will be impressed that you know the word humorcide.


In a dark story about seniors and the adult guardianship court, the seniors fight back.

After Fiona Gavelle attends a funeral of a judge she never met, her picture is in the newspaper.

That picture prompts her to be hired by a man who says he is being forced to live in a nursing home. The story leads to a dark emotional read about aging, freedom to make your own decisions and revenge. The story has a balance of humor so you won't check under the bed for someone with a gavel.
