RARA-AVIS: Vicki Ellis

I was going through a pile of old newspapers when I found a book review that began:

"The lean, seedy noir novel is, by common acclamation, in the midst of a renaissance. Practitioners such as James Ellroy, Vicki Ellis, Elmore Leonard and George P. Pelecanos have refined the streamlined style, unsentimental wit and urban menace of this classic 1940s genre, while updating its content to address a host of contemporary issues, from child abuse to cult religions to racist violence and political assassination."

I've never heard of Vicki Ellis. What has she written? Is she as good as this statement implies?
