End-of-Year Mysteries with Woman Private Investigators

Did you miss any of these late 2013 books? All are additions to series by authors on my Starter’s Dozen of Woman P.I.’s.

  • The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon by Alexander McCall Smith —  Botswanan private investigator Mme. Precious Ramotswe rises to the occasion of helping two clients, one a lady lawyer and the other the troubled owner of a new beauty salon.
  • Critical Mass by Sara Paretsky —  Chicago’s V.I. Warshawski helps longtime friend Dr. Lotty Herschel, who escaped Austria as a child in 1939.  Now WWII secrets create a threat in the present.
  • Gross Sarcastic Homicide by Dani Amore —  L.A. private eye Mary Cooper returns to investigate the strange murder of a corporate executive.


Author Dana Stabenow offered readers a short story featuring Alaskan private investigator Kate Shugak.  “Any Taint of Vice” will help tide them over until the next full-length novel.

M. Ruth Myers writes the Maggie Sullivan mysteries featuring a woman P.I. in the 1930s/40s.
