Before Kinsey Millhone, before VI Warshawski, there was Delilah West, the tough-but-sensitive PI who shattered the boundaries of mystery fiction.
.
"Nothing daunts Delilah West and nothing short of a bullet between her ribs can stop her for long," Los Angeles Times

The PI business has been hard on Delilah West over the last year. Her husband and business partner was murdered and her last case left her with a broken arm, cracked ribs, and big medical bills, forcing her to moonlight as a waitress to pay the bills. As if that wasn't bad enough, she's jogging on a rain-slicked road when a speeding Trans Am clips her and mows down an old man. But things take a bizarre turn when the driver's mother hires Delilah to clear her teenage son of the hit & run killing that Delilah witnessed. Or did she? Nothing is what it appears to be in a twisty, deadly case, that could end with Delilah as road kill.

"Delilah makes an agreeable sleuth: a tough, determined woman whose life seems destined to go from bad to worse," Booklist

"The thrills mount up in the funny, poignant, surprising mystery," Publishers Weekly

"Fascinating... a fast-paced page-turner," Houston Chronicle

"A scrappy, energetic heroine you'll find yourself pulling for," Philadelphia Inquirer

Genre: Romance
