Sharp Shooter

(The first book in the Tara Sharp series)
A novel by


Tara Sharp can see auras, and it's ruining her life.

When she tries to turn her inconvenient secret into a paying gig, her first job lands her in the middle of a tug of war between the biggest, baddest crime lord in town and the hottest business man Tara has ever met.

With only a narcoleptic ex-roadie, her pet galah and a vanilla slice for back up, Tara is ready to take on trouble with a capital 'T'.

Sharp Shooter is a hilarious, action-packed novel and Tara Sharp is Triple F: Funny. Fast. Feisty.

WINNER of the Davitt Award 2010 Best Crime Novel and nominated for Ned Kelly Award 2010 Best First Crime Novel

Book 3 - TOO SHARP
Book 4 - SHARP EDGE, coming later 2017!

"Light, fast-paced, humorous, and yes, sharp, this Perth-based series is a lot of fun to read. As the cover declares, Delacourt has created a heroine Janet Evanovich fans will love - only this lanky lady is pure Aussie. You've not met anyone quite like her." - Tara Moss's Book Club, 13th Street

"Australia's Marianne Delacourt delivers the laughs and action with her sassy, unorthodox PI Tara Sharp..." - The Herald Sun

"Tara Sharp is a gust of fresh air in the local crime fiction scene. While it is wonderful that our more literary crime writers are finally getting the attention they deserve, there's still plenty of room for fast-paced commercial female-oriented Australian crime fiction. And Marianne Delacourt (aka sci-fi writer Marianne de Pierres) has certainly nailed that brief. - The Australian Bookseller and Publisher.

"Marianne Delacourt's heroine - Perth PI Tara Sharp - invites comparison with Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, and there's no doubt if you're an Evanovich fan you'll enjoy this. Sharp, however, has the added wrinkle of being able to read peoples auras, as much a curse as a blessing." - Scoop Magazine
