By Liz Brady
In Bad Date, crime journalist Jane Yeats is on the scene again, full of her trademark smart-ass attitude and fondness for Irish ale - not to mention her problems with her next door neighbour, a crack-addicted prostitute whose body comes to rest on Jane's front lawn one morning. Our reclusive sleuth's life accelerates faster than her new Harley as she is thrust headlong into an unsolicited investigation of a string of unsolved sex-trade mysteries.
Not surprisingly Jane has three unusual "helpers" - her mother, Etta, the over-the-top owner of the city's hottest country music bar; her Native artist friend, Silver, who is busy subverting her own rising celebrity; and Max the Wonder Dog, who's torn between two lovers (Jane and eight-ounce burgers). Soon though, Jane finds herself terrifyingly alone, face-to-face with the ultimate in "bad dates."
