It's been a little bit of a wait since Cherry Pie, but Thrill City is finally here.  And there's more than a touch of the dryly funny about the opening scenario - a Crime Writer, after arranging to shadow PI Simone Kirsch to add authenticity to his next book, meets up with his ex-wife and her new lover on a panel at a Writers Festival, after which everything goes very pear-shaped.

The latest outing from Leigh Redhead is definitely showing some serious series development and it's just an out and out joy to be spending time with Simone and Chloe again.

From the Blurb:

Simone Kirsch, ex-stripper, sleuth and bad girl, is back in business - and before she has time to crack open a bottle of cheap champagne to celebrate the launch of her very own detective agency, she's up to her neck in lethal fun and games.

Opening Lines:

It was a hot November day when I first met Nick Austin.  Venetian blinds slapped the glass as he pushed open my office door, strolled in and looked around the waiting room, taking in the blue Freedom Furniture couch, wilting rubber plant and faux-timber coffee table fanned with second-hand magazines.

Simone Kirsch, ex-stripper, sleuth and bad girl, is back in business - and before she has time to crack open a bottle of cheap champagne to celebrate the launch of her very own detective agency, she's up to her neck in lethal fun and games.

It all starts off quite innocently, when bestselling crime novelist Nick Austin wants to follow her around for a few days as background research for his next novel.
