A former publicist and ex-leftie, EMMA VICTOR is one of the best, as well as one of the longest-lasting lesbian sleuths to make their debut in the eighties. She made her debut in 1987 with She Came Too Late, in which, suffering from burnout, Emma takes a job working a women's hot line in Boston, and soon gets wrapped in a murder case.
As the series progresses, it becomes obvious to Emma that she has a knack for this kind of thing, and she soon has her P.I. license, and a new beat: the streets of San Francisco. And don't let the burnout fool ya--Emma's as tough as they come. Even Harriett Klausner is impressed. She calls Emma "a mix of compassion and steel."
-- "The Lady Dicks" by B. Ruby Rich, in June 1989, The Village Voice Literary Supplement
