Maxim Jakubowski's view...

Like Sara Paretsky; read Tara Moss.

Alongside Sue Grafton and Marcia Muller, Paretsky created the modern archetype of the modern female detective: V.I. Warshawski roams the mean Chicago streets with a feminist sense of righteousness, anger and fallibility and has inspired countless other authors and characters. Tara Moss’ Mak Vanderwall is a more contemporary Australian counterpart, feisty, indomitable, with both a troubled past and a present full of action and suspense.

Recommended:

Sara Paretsky - HARDBALL. Asked to find a man who’s been missing for 40 years, VI retraces his steps to the civil rights struggles of the 60s and uncovers her usual nest of vipers and personal family secrets.

Tara Moss - HIT. Glamorous Mak Vanderwall now works part-time for a Sydney PI but has a knack for bending the law in her investigations. Which is no help in maintaining personal relationships and her latest case takes her into dangerous corners and streets.

Synopsis

Hit by Tara Moss

Makedde Vanderwall has her PhD and is ready to begin her new life in Australia with her detective boyfriend Andy Flynn. Hoping to scrape together some extra cash to start her own forensic psychology practice, Mak begins working part-time for an infamous Sydney private investigator. With a knack of investigation and bending the law, she might just have stumbled across her true calling - and the career choice that could break up her relationship once and for all. Then Mak is hired by a mysterious client to investigate the murder of A-list PA Meaghan Wallace. The police believe it's an open and shut case but Mak discovers that it's a lot more complicated, uncovering a dangerous web of deceit, killers for hire and the sleazy underworld of the powerful and dabauched rich.
