Over The Top

As the new owner of OverTheTop Gym, Claudia Monroe investigates the murder of her star personal trainer because she realizes she is targeted as the next victim.


Claudia struggles to keep her business up and running after the murder of her top personal trainer is followed by the death of one of the trainer’s clients. The stakes become personal when a series of threatening events force Claudia to investigate the murders using methods she never imagined.


Claudia relentlessly markets OverTheTop with best business practices to stay afloat in the fitness industry, while involving her donut eating assistant, Charlene, and the ever stealth detective, Mitch, in her attempts figure out why the murders seem to involve her. Staying alive becomes a fitness goal she fights to achieve. Realizing she can trust very few people, she picks up her game pursuing answers to questions that jeopardize her safety.


Claudia’s professional relationship with one of her ‘to die for clients’ becomes closer when he provides her with increased security measures as the investigation continues. Black cats, black shoes, and dark romances clutter life’s journey as Claudia pieces the puzzle together. In the end, none of her protection plans are sufficient enough to save her from unexpected ultimate encounter.
