EVE DeHAAs is one tough cookie, or at least she tries to be.
The way she puts it "I earn my living, such as it is, sticking my nose into other people's business... for money. I'm thirty-three years old, black, five years off the force, and, with one eye closed, can shoot a rusty penny off a baboon's backside."
Alas, we don't get to see any demonstration of Eve's markmanship skills (or even any simian behinds) in her one recorded case to date, "For Services Rendered," in which her grandfather ropes her into looking for a missing dog, owned by a singularly unpleasant elderly local woman.
Still, it's an amusing read, and bodes well for the author's future work. She lives in the Midwest, and evidently already has a few novels ready to go.
