Publisher Description

A .38, a nip of gin and sensational legs get Depression-era private investigator Maggie Sullivan out of most scrapes – until a stranger threatens to bust her nose, she’s hauled in on suspicion of his murder and she finds herself in the cross-hairs of a sadistic crime boss.

Matching wits against dangerous men, with bits of information from a dime store waitress, a ragged newsboy and the girls at her rooming house, Maggie follows a path that leaves her drugged, in her DeSoto in a ditch.

A gunman puts a bullet through Maggie’s hat. Her shutterbug pal on the evening paper warns her off. A new cop whose presence unsettles her thinks she’s crooked. Before she finds all the answers she needs, she faces a half-crazed man with a gun, and a far more lethal point-blank killer.

If you like Robert B. Parker's hard boiled Spencer series and strong women sleuths, don't miss this one-of-a-kind Ohio detective from a time in United States history when dames wore hats -- but seldom a Smith & Wesson.

No Game for a Dame

I thoroughly enjoyed this book & look forward to reading others in this series.

NO thanks.

I was enjoying this book until about 9% in, the author used Jesus’ name in vain - as a swear word. That’s a deal breaker for me & I won’t read any more of her work. You authors should take heed to the admonition in Scripture that God will not hold blameless those who do this. Sharpen up your vocabulary & stop resorting to things that offend Him greatly. The thing that makes saddest is that the book was recommended by one of my favorite authors who writes clean Christian mystery thrillers 😪

Great read!

Loved it! Fun read, like Mike Hammer- hard boiled- but with a powerful lady in the prime spot. Funny at times, interesting crime, and tons of historical facts that paint a picture of America in the late 1930s. Will be reading the next Maggie Sullivan book for sure!
