[a very nice copy, tight and clean with no discernible wear; jacket shows just a tiny bit of surface wear]. Chandler-esque detective yarn with a gender-twist: the title character is a lesbian, who "runs her detective agency -- an agency with a difference -- from a run-down office in the Cahuenga Building of Los Angeles, keeping the wolf from the door with $25 expenses and a sharp line in wisecracks." According to the jacket blurb, the book "has more tantalising false leads than 'The Big Sleep,' a more involved plot than 'Farewell My Lovely,' and a private eye with more wit and wits than Philip Marlowe himself."
