Swift Justice

(The first book in the Charlie Swift series)
A novel by

Charlotte 'Charlie' Swift prefers working alone. That's why after eight years as an Air Force investigator she became a PI rather than a cop. She lives alone, she works alone, and aside for the occasional flirtation with sexy cop Connor Montgomery or her hunky neighbor Father Dan, she likes it that way. Then her silent partner flees the country, leaving his wife, Gigi, with nothing but the house, the Hummer, and a half interest in Swift Investigations. Charlie ends up with a heap of debt and Gigi, who has decided to be a not-so-silent partner. This change comes about while Charlie is trying to find the mother of a baby abandoned on a client's doorstep. While following leads, she sends Gigi out on crazy assignments, hoping that the pampered socialite will be driven to quit. However, when the baby's mother turns up dead, there's a murderer on the loose, and Charlie will need all the help she can get.

Swift Justice is a Lefty Award finalist for best humorous mystery.

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Praise for this book

"Swift Justice has rapidly become my favorite new P.I. puzzler. It's smart and sassy with tons of humor and a whole lot of heart. With unforgettably fresh characters, it's a real high-speed read!" - Chris Grabenstein

"I thoroughly enjoyed meeting soft-boiled private eye, Charlotte Swift. With believable credentials (ex-Air Force, Office of Special Investigations), Charlie's tricky case is lightened by the Humvee-driving abandoned wife of Charlie's ex-partner, a heretofore 'spa-to Saks-to-dinner party' matron, who has decided she wants to be a PI. Swift Justice is a delightfully sure-footed mixture of light and dark, and it signals the debut of a solid series." - Margaret Maron

"Laura DiSilverio is a tremendous new talent, and her Charlie Swift is a feisty heroine you'll root for from the very first page. This is a magnificent debut, and I can't wait to find out what Charlie and Gigi get up to next." - Cornelia Read
