Easy Innocence by Libby Fischer Hellmann

This is the story of Georgia Davis. Suspended from the Police Force she has accepted a job as a Private Investigator. Her first job is to investigate the murder of Sara Long. The Police have their man (an educationally-challenged paedophile) and the murder weapon. Seems cut and dried but Georgia is convinced there is more to it than that, as she uncovers bent lawyers, shady businessmen, hazing and teenage prostitution, can she find the real killer before anyone else dies?

This was great. It started off at a good pace and never really let up. On the face of it everything seems simple but what emerged was a well thought out and expertly executed thriller. Georgia was great as the lead - slightly damaged from being suspended and a bitter break up, she is determined to get to the bottom of things. Even to the detriment of a possible new romance. She was utterly believable and I love a book where a woman is the heroine. There were enough twists and turns and red herrings along the way to keep the reader interested until the very last page. I loved this and would be more than happy to read more by this author.

 I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review.
