End-of-Year Mysteries with Woman Private Investigators
Posted by mruthmyers
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.
ONE MORE TREAT:
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.
