More about UNLEASHED:
UNLEASHED is the first book in Emily Kimelman's best selling Sydney Rye series of mysteries.
When the series begins Sydney Rye is named Joy Humbolt. She does not like people telling her what to do, so it comes as no surprise that she was just fired from her last job. When she buys Charlene Miller's dog-walking business on Manhattan's exclusive upper east side, it seems like the perfect fit: Quiet environment, minimal contact with people.
But then one of her clients turns up dead, and Charlene disappears. Rumors say Charlene was having an affair with the victim--and of course, everyone assumes Joy must know where she is. Joy begins to look into the crime, first out of curiosity then out of anger when there is another murder and threats start to come her way.
When police detective Mulberry is assigned to the case, Joy finds a kindred spirit--cynical and none-too-fond of the human race. As they dig deep into the secrets of Manhattan's elite, they not only get closer to the killer but also to a point of no return. One last murder sends Joy Humbolt hurtling over the edge. Her only chance of survival is to become Sydney Rye.

I read somewhere that America will remain the land of the free only so long as it remains the home of the brave. It made me think. American Independence was possible due to the bravery and tenacity of a very special group of people. It's not all that surprising though. Those same people had already crossed a dangerous ocean to take up residence in a wild new land filled with more trials and unknowns than success stories. They had done so to seek freedom from religious tyranny. It's little wonder they would be willing to die for the preservation of that hard-earned sense of independent thoughts, beliefs and life choices.
A lot of discussion surrounded the decision to unite behind the Declaration of Independence, and a lot of revision went into the final document. As an American I enjoy the results of this sovereign separation. As a writer I appreciate both the magnitude of the endeavor and the demand for freedom written into a declaration that was essentially an act of treason.
It's the who, what, where and when of why I can write what I want, or in other words think what I wish, without fear of censor or punishment. This does of course pressupose I have no desire to incite riot or anarchy--as well it should.
The point however is that we as writers are all very lucky to live in such a land of freedom. We must also have the bravery to continue to ensure future generations can read and write their choice of topics or authors. Illuminated texts must be cherished, but with the advance of technology at least burning books can't ensure they will never be read again. Enjoy your independence while supporting your fellow writers and their right to write!
