J. A. Hennrikus Cover Reveal

by Julie, loving summer in Somerville

With a Kiss I DieI am thrilled to share the cover for my next Theater Cop book, With A Kiss I Die. It will be released on April 8, 2019 but is available for pre-order now.

The Theater Cop series features Sully Sullivan, an ex-cop who runs a theater company on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The Cliffside is a summer theater, but the work goes on all year long. This book takes place in February. Dimitri Traietti has been hired to step in and direct Romeo and Juliet in Boston, and Sully goes down to give him a sounding board as he deals with a cast in revolt, an all white set, and an absentee managing director. Sully also sets up a meeting with Mimi and Jerry Cunningham. They run the Century Foundation, and Sully is applying to them for a grant. When Mimi is found dead, Sully tries not to get involved with the investigation, especially when she realizes her former partner is on the case. But then her ex-husband Gus disappears. . .

The Theater Cop series is more of a traditional series. It crosses the two worlds I love–mysteries and theater.

How great is this cover? I love the layers of information included on it–a lot but not too much. So glad I’m able to share it with you today!

  1. Cool cover. I really enjoyed the first book in the series. I look forward to reading this one as well. Congrats!

  2. Wonderful cover, Julie! And what a great time to reveal a winter cover – right in the middle of a summer heatwave. Thank you for the breath of cooler, fresh air.

    1. It seems impossible that it is that cold when we’re all sweating, but it is. And icy in Boston. Glad to provide the fresh breeze.

  3. What a great cover! And as a stage manager, I too have had to deal with an all white set AND a cast in revolt. Although thankfully not in the same show! Congrats on the upcoming new release. This will go on my TBR list for sure!

    1. Autumn, as a stage manager you have MANY tales to tell. Stage managers are the heroes of theater. I combined many stories into this book. Hopefully it won’t cause you stress.

      1. Not at all! I have a “thank God I’m not the only one” reaction when I read theater stories. 🙂

  4. Love the cover! I love to dissect covers for clues to the story. 🙂
