Overview
Welcome back Giulia Falcone-Driscoll, the hilariously droll and popular former-nun-turned-PI, with an ending Publishers Weekly calls "exciting and suspenseful," you won't want to miss this one Sub-Genre Tags: Humorous Mysteries, Women Sleuths, Cozy Mysteries, Private Investigator Books, Whodunnit Giulia Falcone-Driscoll has just taken on her first impossible client: The Silk Tie Killer. He's hired Driscoll Investigations to prove his innocence and they have only thirteen days to accomplish it. Talk about being tried in the media. Everyone in town is sure Roger Fitch strangled his girlfriend with one of his silk neckties. And then there's the local TMZ wannabes-The Scoop-stalking Giulia and her client for sleazy sound bites. On top of all that, her assistant's first baby is due any second, her scary smart admin still doesn't relate well to humans, and her police detective husband insists her client is guilty. About this marriage thing-it's unknown territory, but it sure beats ten years of living with 150 nuns. Giulia's ownership of Driscoll Investigations hasn't changed her passion for justice from her convent years. But the more dirt she digs up, the more she's worried her efforts will help a murderer escape. As the client accuses DI of dragging its heels on purpose, Giulia thinks The Silk Tie Killer might be choosing one of his ties for her own neck.

Last seen in 2013’s Veiled Threat, Giulia Driscoll fights injustice in this solid start to a series relaunch. The nun-turned-private investigator in Cottonwood, Pa., must now prove that Roger Fitch, the so-called Silk-Tie Killer, didn’t strangle his girlfriend, Loriela Gil. Everyone but Roger and his attorney is convinced he’s guilty. Roger has a motive, but Loriela had many enemies, any of whom could have killed her. Giulia’s search is set back by a sleazy, sensationalist reporter, and by Roger himself, who accuses her of not trying hard enough. Her husband, police detective Frank Driscoll, thinks she’s making a mistake in her effort to absolve Roger, and she begins to worry she may be helping a killer escape justice. After a promising start, the story drags in the middle but picks up speed toward the end, as it approaches the exciting and suspenseful climax. Agent: Kent Wolf, Lippincott Massie McQuilkin. (Jan.)
