(2012)
(A book in the Ellie Foreman Mysteries series)
An omnibus of novels by

 
 
The first four novels in the series that critics describe as "a masterful blend of politics, history, and suspense."
Ellie Foreman is a Chicago documentary producer and amateur sleuth. She has a teen-age daughter who is thirteen in the 1st book but is driving by the 4th. She also has a senior-citizen father who worries about her almost as much as she does him. Ellie has a finely-honed sense of justice, which sometimes lands her in dangerous situations. Her dry sense of humor lightens the mood, but make no mistake: these are suspense thrillers rather than cozies. Which might be why the author describes the series as a cross between "Desperate Housewives and "24." When you find yourself staying up way too late reading, you'll see why the Ellie Foreman series fits into Hellmann's body of "Compulsively Readable Thrillers."

"Complicated... fascinating... Hellmann has a beautifully tuned ear... which makes many of her scenes seriously funny."
--Chicago Tribune

"Hellmann owes a debt to fellow Chicagoans Sara Paretsky (complex plotting) and Barbara D'Amato (excellent research) - but she's the brash young thing making this formula new again!"
--Aunt Agatha's

"A dark, beautiful book about the struggle of the human spirit against despair... Impossible to put down. Honest to god, mysteries don 't get any better than this."
--William Kent Krueger
"I found myself reading each book front to back in one sitting!"
--Granny2ni's, A Reader

Don't miss these novels, now packaged in a Box Set at a very attractive price.
