"The feisty West is considered one of the first of the modern women PIs and also one of the grittiest," Los Angeles Times
Before Kinsey Millhone, Sharon McCone and V.I. Warshawski, there was Delilah West, the sensitive, gutsy and resourceful private eye who shattered the boundaries of mystery fiction…and now she’s back.
DEATH IS FOREVER
The first Delilah West novel by Maxine O’Callaghan, honored by the Private Eye Writers of America with their Lifetime Achievement Award.
Ex-cop Delilah West is working as a PI with her husband Jack when he’s killed while investigating a missing person’s case. Grief-stricken and enraged, she becomes obsessed with finding the killer…only to wake up drugged in a skid-row hotel room with him lying beside her with a knife in his back. It’s the perfect frame, nailing her for an obvious revenge killing. Now she’s on the run…living on a razor’s edge trying to avoid capture while searching for the murderers who’ve destroyed her life.
"A no-frills tale that's as good a marriage of detective work and domestic problems as you're likely to see," Kirkus Reviews
“Delilah's mistakes and emotional turmoil have a refreshing realism.” Sun-Sentinel (Orlando)

Death is Forever
I liked it - empathized with main character and a decent plot.
A breakneck, lightning rush thru classic L.A. Gritty and plausible, it had me quietly rooting for our heroine to discover her truth, and find her redemption.
Very well written! Suspenseful to the end! Didn't figure out the perpetrator until the author revealed him! Will now be sure to read the other books in this series!
