Sudden Blow

Sudden Blow


By Liz Brady


A motorbike-riding business writer is asked to investigate the death of a tycoon in the first of a new mystery series featuring the irreverent Jane Yeats. Meet Jane Yeats. She's a still-grieving widow who smokes and sometimes drinks too much. Jane is also an acclaimed business writer who supports herself exposing corruption among the business elite. In this first mystery, Jane is asked to investigate the murder of a highly unpopular developer. The prime suspect is his estranged gay son. The murderer could also be someone involved in organized crime. Clever, fast-paced, irreverent and brimming with insider tidbits about big business, Sudden Blow introduces an appealing new heroine, full of contradictions.
