“Elvira Slate is everything we need in a female sleuth, an outsider with nothing to lose and a nose for the truth. She’s a beacon of light in a shoddy and corrupt world. This is a pacy and brilliantly plotted novel, which kept me hooked from beginning to end!”
“In Elvira Slate, Jacey has created a slick Forties sleuth that could inspire the toughest 21st century feminist.”
“She is the noir anti-heroine we’ve long been missing.”
“A tough, street-wise female detective Philip Marlowe would have been proud to work with.”
“If like me you wanted Forties noir films to stop following the male gumshoe and follow the fascinating sassy dame and brassy broads then this book is for you.”
