Judy Clemens is the author of the Anthony and Agatha-nominated Stella Crown mysteries, the Grim Reaper series, and the stand-alone, LOST SONS. She lives in Ohio with her family, where she bakes, goes to soccer games, and is training for a half-marathon.She also writes under the name J.C. Lane, and has her first thriller out. TAG, YOU'RE DEAD follows six teenagers as they play a deadly game through the city of Chicago.
Three “Its” have their reasons for buying a place in the Game. Surgically enhanced Brandy is obsessed with destroying a beautiful girl. Untalented Robert covets his target’s position as a superstar basketball player. Brainiac Charles craves a battle against an intellectual equal.
Hand-picked innocents play as “Runners,” under threat to their loved ones should they refuse to participate: lovely, small-town Laura; celebrated athlete Tyrese; and Amanda, gamer extraordinaire. Alone, hunted by their adversary, each feels a single hope…to survive. As soon as Runners receive the “Go” signal on smartwatches locked to their wrists, the Game rockets them through the city, from the El to Michigan Avenue to the Lincoln Park Zoo. There is no time to rest. Every thirty minutes the Runner’s location is transmitted to the It, which steadily diminishes the Runner’s chance of ever reaching Home Base alive.
