Heather Havenabout this book: This is a feminine point of view about being a hardboiled detective in New York City, circa 1942. Percy Cole is not the 'accepted' pretty woman, is not doing the 'accepted' job and is a single mother at a time when it was not as accepted as it is today. She's odd-man out, if you will. I've done a lot of research of that period, and I wanted to write something that was challenging and different. I didn't want my protagonist to be the ordinary slim, lovely woman trying to make her way in the world, (which is tough enough). I handed Percy Cole a boatload of problems and she handles them like a champ.
• "Hats off to Ms Haven for another fine series. I couldn't put it down."
• "As a Heather Haven fan, I couldn't resist leaving an encouraging word to those of you who love your genres mixed with a heaping of humor. I read her first series and absolutely loved it, so I was really excited to see this debut of her new heroine and series."
