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.
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.

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.
