I'm giving this book away to anyone who's willing to send me a book in return.
It seems it's quite rare. There are two copies in Abebooks, both priced around
The book stars Jesse James, who's one of the female P.I's from the seventies
and eighties (even though she's not technically a private eye, she works like
one). The book was the fifth in the series, but the only one to come from
Women's Press. I think this was also the last one.
It seems that Meg O'Brien is writing romance novels nowadays, but she started
out as a hardboiled writer. I didn't much like the book, although it has an
interesting premise: Jesse James gets a visitor who turns out to be his own
father, a two-bit hustler who's running from some bad guys.
Anyone willing to get this? All I'm asking is that I receive a hardboiled
paperback in return and it certainly doesn't have to be in the same price
category, not even close.
