Young, commercial women's fiction. Fast, funny, furious comedy crime set in Dublin Cash Ryan's life is a mess. A property developer has made her homeless, her boyfriend has decided to lead the celibate life, and her big acting break in a TV soap has just fizzled out like a damp squib. She gets sympathy and support from Mort Higgins, private investigator, friend and part time employer, but is devastated one morning to find him dead at his desk with a gun shot wound to his head. The police declare it a suicide, but Cash and Mort's widow Janet think differently. Along with Cash's friend Billie, they embark on a journey to discover the truth. On the way they encounter a healing evangelist, a renegade biker nun, an illegal adoption scam, a host of Hell's Angels, a few close shaves and plenty of dirty dealing. Maggie Gibson manages to write about suicide, murder, drugs and corrupt policemen with a lightness of touch that makes it a fast, gripping and highly entertaining story where the villains get their come uppances. The central female characters are feisty and hard nosed, the dialogue witty and the energy high.
