No Game for a Dame

#1, Maggie Sullivan Mysteries

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A .38, a nip of gin and sensational legs get Depression-era private investigator Maggie Sullivan out of most scrapes – until a stranger threatens to bust her nose, she’s hauled in on suspicion of his murder and she finds herself in the cross-hairs of a sadistic crime boss.

Matching wits against dangerous men, with bits of information from a dime store waitress, a ragged newsboy and the girls at her rooming house, Maggie follows a path that leaves her drugged, in her DeSoto in a ditch.

A gunman puts a bullet through Maggie’s hat. Her shutterbug pal on the evening paper warns her off. A new cop whose presence unsettles her thinks she’s crooked. Before she finds all the answers she needs, she faces a half-crazed man with a gun, and a far more lethal point-blank killer.

If you like Robert B. Parker's hard boiled Spencer series and strong women sleuths, don't miss this one-of-a-kind Ohio detective from a time in United States history when dames wore hats -- but seldom a Smith & Wesson.

No Game for a Dame

Well written and very entertaining.

Good beginning to a new series

I started out with this book just to give it a try, as I enjoy detective stories from this time period. I wasn’t sure if a female private detective would be able to fit in the era of tough guy detectives. After the first few chapters my fears were put to rest, “Maggie” holds her own. Smart, witty and resourceful, tough but not too tough not to be believable. Nice development of characters, most of which carry over into the next books as I had hoped. I started here and am now on book 5, with every intention of reading 6 and 7 as well, I just hope that isn’t the end of them, keep them coming !

Read in a day

Fast paced with loss of fingernails. Was determined not to like a hard-boiled female PI during the 1930s but she grew on me and I want to read more of Maggie Sullivan.
