"The feisty West is considered one of the first of the modern women PIs and 
also one of the grittiest," Los Angeles Times 

Before Kinsey Millhone, Sharon McCone and V.I. Warshawski, there was Delilah West, the sensitive, gutsy and resourceful private eye who shattered the boundaries of mystery fiction…and now she’s back.


The first Delilah West novel by Maxine O’Callaghan, honored by the Private Eye Writers of America with their Lifetime Achievement Award.

Ex-cop Delilah West is working as a PI with her husband Jack when he’s killed while investigating a missing person’s case. Grief-stricken and enraged, she becomes obsessed with finding the killer…only to wake up drugged in a skid-row hotel room with him lying beside her with a knife in his back. It’s the perfect frame, nailing her for an obvious revenge killing. Now she’s on the run…living on a razor’s edge trying to avoid capture while searching for the murderers who’ve destroyed her life.

"A no-frills tale that's as good a marriage
 of detective work and domestic problems as you're likely to see," Kirkus Reviews

“Delilah's mistakes and emotional turmoil have a refreshing realism.” Sun-Sentinel (Orlando)
