Anonymous is the first in the A Madison Kelly Mystery series. Madison Kelly is a private investigator in San Diego, and one day, she comes home to a disturbing note on her front door with the words, ‘Stop investigating me or I will hunt you and kill you.’ She also notices a strand of blonde hair attached to the note by the writer, which she thinks was done on purpose and not by accident.

At first, she is so confused after seeing the threat that she is between jobs trying to figure out what she’ll do next, and isn’t currently investigating any case. However, she recalls that she tweeted on cold cases of two young ladies broadcasted on the crime podcast.

Samantha went missing after leaving a bar in Gaslamp District around four years ago, while Elissa vanished on her way home from a bar in the same area two years later. She hasn’t investigated anything, and she is currently doing insurance fraud work.

Maybe all this is because she has been watching and tweeting the podcast during her free time and thinks that’s why she got the attention. She wonders whether all this has anything to do with the tweets on the podcast about the unsolved murders.

Maddie finds out that the note is connected to the two women who have been missing for years and discovers that someone has been following her and is sure she is being watched.

Maddie decides to do the opposite and find out what’s going on by conducting an informal investigation and goes the extra mile to interview a host of some suspects while uncovering hidden agendas. She is so curious to know what happened to the girls, and she has been interacting with the podcasters and other listeners on Twitter.

It seems there is a connection between the two missing girls. Knowing that she is on the watch, she decides to be careful, so she doesn’t end up being the next victim.

She hopes she’ll make it alive at the head of it all. Madison is a strong and independent lady who depends on herself in business and personal life. In the past, she relied on her friendship with a local police detective for assistance at times.

However, their friendship is strained for a couple of months. She decides to ignore the situation and requests him to analyze the notes on her behalf. In the meantime, she starts tracing Samantha’s and Elissa’s whereabouts on the nights they went missing.

She conducts interviews with family members and close friends, hoping she’ll have reliable information to help in the investigation. Madison’s personal life is solitary, and she has some friends and a beneficial relationship with Dave Rich, a local surfer.

Deciding on expanding her friendship, she agrees to go out with one of her neighbors. Madison plans to meet Tom when she finds new evidence, and he introduces her to his friend Ken. As she gets closer to solving the mystery surrounding the cases, she knows whom to trust.

Will Madison find the murderer, or will the murderer find Madison first?
