And you thought dying once would be hard...

On the morning before her 67th death, it is business as usual for agent Jesse Sullivan: meet with the mortician, counsel soon-to-be-dead clients, and have coffee while reading the latest regeneration theory. Jesse dies for a living, literally. Because of a neurological disorder, she is one of the population's rare 2% who can serve as a death surrogate, dying so others don't have to. 

Although each death replacement is different, the result is the same: a life is saved, and Jesse resurrects days later with sore muscles, new scars, and another hole in her memory. But when Jesse is murdered and becomes the sole suspect in a federal investigation, more than her freedom and sanity are at stake. She must catch the killer herself--or die trying.

Dying for a Living is the first book in Kory M. Shrum's gripping fantasy series. If you like page-turning action, tough as nails heroines, and perfectly-paced suspense, then you'll love this "hilarious" and "supernaturally fantastic" ride.

About the Author:

Kory M. Shrum is an award-winning and USA TODAY bestselling author of fantasy and thrillers--and something else that's a bit of each. She's an active member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Horror Writers of America, and the Four Horsemen of the Bookocalypse, where she's known as Conquest.

When not reading, writing, or battling her pug for the covers, she's planning her next adventure. She lives in Michigan with her equally bookish wife, Kim, and their rescue pug, Charley.

Review:

"Kory Shrum's writing is smart, imaginative,and insanely addictive! I have begun to think of her books as my Kory Krack. I beg of you to pick them up. You will NOT regret it!" -Darynda Jones, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Charley Davidson series 
 
"Sexy, snarky, and supernaturally fantastic! This one has it all!" - Angela Roquet, acclaimed author of the Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. series
 
 "Jesse makes a living by dying in other people's place because she's a Necronite and comes back to life. The whole Necronite condition was both interesting and creepy.The author did a great job of explaining it and making it real for the reader." -Urban Fantasy Investigations

 
"When you thought you read everything there was to read about zombies and undead, here comes a series so original that will make you question the common morals and the ethics of dying for a living. Twists and turns, and surprising endings, Jesse Sullivan stories mark a brand new era in the urban fantasy genre."   -Monica LaPorta, author of The Ginecean Chronicles and The Immortals series 
 
"This book is filled with a cast of interesting characters ... and a fat pug named Winston - all helping to solve the mystery around {JesseSullivan's}attack--and you have a fast-paced story, and a great start to the series!" -LG O'Conner, author of the The Angelorum Twelve Chronicles
