Created by Elizabeth Pincus
NELL FURY? Well, as PI monikers go, it's a doozie! Anywho, so our gal Nell is a San Francisco gumshoe, and a lesbian, which isn't very unusual anymore as far as detective fiction goes. But Nell's a pretty colourful character. She drinks root beer, has an active sexlife which she doesn't mind telling us about, a teenage daughter, doesn't carry a gun, but isn't afraid to use her fists. She's also got some pretty strong political views, which she's not afraid to get in your face about, and the books themselves don't shy away from fairly graphic sex and violence.
Also interesting is that she was created by Elizabeth Pincus, herself a former private eye, and an occasional reviwer for the San Francisco Review of Books.
