Kay Kendall

Kay Kendall’s Austin Starr mysteries capture the spirit and turbulence of the 1960s. DESOLATION ROW (2013) and RAINY DAY WOMEN (2015) show Austin, a 22-year-old Texas bride, set adrift in a foreign land and on the front lines of societal change. Austin learns to cope by turning amateur sleuth. Kay’s degrees in Russian history and language help ground her tales in the Cold War, and her titles show she's a Bob Dylan buff too. Kay is the incoming president for Mystery Writers of America’s southwest chapter, and in her former life as a PR executive, Kay’s projects won international awards.
