A Free Thriller For You!

My favorite of the Ellie Foreman series is available free for a limited time. Both Ellie Foreman and Georgia Davis work together to solve the murder of a young woman caught on surveillance tape.

 

If that interests you, here's where to go:

Nobody's Child: A Georgia Davis Novel of Suspense (Georgia Davis Series) (Volume 4) - Libby Fischer Hellmann

I received this ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book I've read by Libby Hellman, but it won't be my last. While it appears this was not the first in the series, it did not hinder in my enjoyment or the story at all.

I found the protagonist, Georgia Davis, to be a very likeable character and look forward to reading more books about her adventures. I definitely look forward to the next one to hear how she and her new found sister become a family.

There was also a lot of suspense with plot twists that kept you reading on into the hours of the night. Hence, my writing this review at 3:00 in the morning. It was definitely an entertaining read and one I would highly recommend!

A compelling story about a troubling subject
Nobody's Child: A Georgia Davis Novel of Suspense (Georgia Davis Series) (Volume 4) - Libby Fischer Hellmann

Georgia Davis is an ex-cop PI in Chicago.  Sounds like the premise of a hard-boiled mystery and it pretty much is, though Georgia does have a soft side which she mainly keeps to herself.  This is her fourth novel but the first I’ve read and I will be going back to look for the first three.  

Georgia is working for a merchant that was the victim of a flash robbery gang when she realizes she is being tailed.  She’s even more surprised when she discovers a note informing her that she has a sister she didn’t know existed and that her sister is in Chicago needing Georgia’s help.   She doesn’t know if it’s even true but who could resist trying to find out?  Her search leads her through the worst aspects of Chicago and human nature.  It also leads to an old enemy who is definitely holding a grudge.  I don’t know if this is spoilerish but I was very satisfied with the way the story played out.

This particular story covers subject matter that will be very disturbing to many readers because it involves sex-trafficking of young girls and a baby-selling ring in more detail than some will care for.  If you can’t stomach this stuff, and I have a very hard time with it, be forewarned.  If you decide to proceed anyway, there is an excellent story here.  Not having read the first 3 in this series didn’t seem to matter.   I love stories that show the nitty-gritty of what it takes for a PI to do their job and this does a great job of that.  Georgia reminds me of Kinsey Milhone in that aspect though these are far more gritty than Sue Grafton’s books.

In short, troubling subject matter, compelling book.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

She soon discovers that trafficking is just a small part of the horrifying and deadly situation in which her new sister is caught up. Even worse, as Georgia tries to extricate Savannah, she comes up against an old enemy determined to make sure neither woman will escape alive. In the fourth novel of the Georgia Davis series, she faces her toughest challenge yet—and one she might not survive.

Praise for The Georgia Davis Series:

 

"Hellmann brings to life the reality of bullying among teenage girls with enough twists and turns to keep you reading. Highly recommended."
-- Starred Review, Library Journal, Easy Innocence


"There's a new no-nonsense female private detective in town: Georgia Davis, a former cop who is tough and smart enough to give even the legendary V.I. Warshawski a run for her money." --Chicago Tribune on Easy Innocence

"DOUBLEBACK moves with twists, insightful juxtapositions, and many layers. Hellmann doesn't need to "doubleback." She's indisputably crossed the line into the realm of great crime fiction writers." --Crimespree Magazine

"Hellmann writes in many genres, but her Georgia Davis series may just be one of the best crime thriller series being written today." -- The Dirty Lowdown on ToxiCity

"Hellmann writes with the economy and emotional punch of classic crime novelists like Lawrence Block. And she has created a perpetrator who is complex, realistic and completely unexpected." Peg Robarchek, on ToxiCity
