Elaine Viets reveals the story that inspired her newest mystery, “Late for His Own Funeral.”

    Best selling mystery writer and former St. Louis Post-Dispatch Reporter Elaine Viets likes her murders messy and real. In “Late for His Own Funeral,” she delivers both when the flashy, fast-living victim of a fatal car crash turns out to be very much alive – until he’s not. After a second suspicious crash kills him for real, Death Investigator Angela Richman discovers a trail of infidelities, shady business dealings and sexual exploitation, leading her to wonder, “Who would kill Sterling Chaney … twice?”
