Private investigator Lily White has a client with a faulty moral compass. When the client is arrested for murdering his wife and her alleged lover, Lily follows her intuition and her own leads. If she’s wrong, she’ll at least know she did her job.
Detroit police detective Derrick Paxton remembers Lily from another case. He understands she suffers from PTSD and thinks her judgment is impaired. He goes after her client and the evidence he needs to close the case. When Lily is kidnapped, the case takes an unexpected turn.
In a sometimes racially divided city, a black cop and a white PI work together to peel back every layer to find the truth. What they find leads them to each other, but do they have enough to bring the true criminals to justice?

Lily White in Detroit
Good book with a few very unusual story lines. But at times it can be a bit confusing seeming like I missed something; ever read an abridged book? It’s kind of like that. Have never read anything set in Detroit so that was different. Really liked the direct manner of addressing race and biracial coupling.
Enjoyable, Fast-Paced Read
An enjoyable, fast-paced read, LILY WHITE IN DETROIT combines nonstop action with an unlikely romance. The main characters are likable, the writing is engaging, and the events that unfold present an intriguing puzzle. As a long-time reader of Harrison's, I was impressed by her debut into this genre and hope this is just the start of many crime fiction books by her.
