ON JANUARY 1, LEFT FIELD, ELIZABETH SIMS’ LATEST IN THE Lillian Byrd Crime Series, was Amazon’s #1 bestseller in the Gay and Lesbian Mystery category!
Here’s why! Lillian Byrd has been searching her soul after the gut-wrenching experience of killing someone in self-defense. Scrabbling to make ends meet, she takes a job as a quasi detective, solving life’s little mysteries for a pair of eccentric women in one of Detroit’s last prestigious neighborhoods. When she spots a corpse on the next-door lawn, she jumps back into honest work as an investigative journalist.
Raves include this, from an Amazon reader: “The pacing in the book is exquisite . . . I found myself laughing out loud at the antics of Lillian and her pal Lou throughout the book. Brisk, smart writing; insightful social commentary regarding Detroit; lovable characters; and a highly original plot make for a paging-turning read.”
