RARA-AVIS: Women PI Heroines

Hi, gang. I was just talking to a lady friend at work who was reading Grafton's latest, "P is for Peril". I mentioned the fact that I've known women cops, women doctors, women paramedics, all of whom are involved in tough professions and bust through the male-chauvanist sterotypes 100 different ways. But when I read about women PIs, cops, what have you, in fiction, something about it doesn't ring true and I tune out. I'm just curious if anyone else finds this true as well. Since obviously Grafton and her compatriots are selling well, somebody's reading, and maybe I'm all alone on this. --Brian
