Double Back by Libby Fischer Hellmann

Double Back by Libby Fischer Hellmann Purchase:

     A high-octane rocket ride through ripped-from-the-headlines issues and across the country.

    LITTLE MOLLY MESSENGER is kidnapped on a sunny June morning. Three days later she’s returned, apparently unharmed. Molly’s mother, Chris, is so grateful to have her daughter back that she’s willing to overlook the odd circumstances.
    A few days later, the brakes go out on Chris’s car.An accident? Maybe. Except that it turns out that Chris, the IT manager at a large Chicago bank, may have misappropriated three million dollars. Not convinced that his daughter is safe, Molly’s father hires PI Georgia Davis to follow the money and investigate Chris’s death.

    Doubleback, the sequel to the acclaimed Easy Innocence, reunites PI Georgia Davis with video producer Ellie Foreman (An Eye For Murder, A Picture Of Guilt, An Image Of Death, A Shot To Die For).

    The two women track leads from Northern Wisconsin to an Arizona border town, where illegal immigrants, smuggled drugs, and an independent contractor called Delton Security come into play. Georgia and Ellie go to great lengths to find the truth, and Georgia discovers that you can cross a line, but sometimes you have to double back.

    Doubleback was chosen by the Great Lakes Bookseller Association as their Autumn, 2009 “Great Lakes Great Read.”

    Reviews:
    Teaming up two strong, intelligent lead characters makes for a rich, suspenseful story in Libby Fischer Hellmann’s DOUBLEBACK — Oline Cogdill, Mystery Scene

    Hellman’s new book is one tough cookie. She has combined her two protagonists into a strong and moving novel. Others have done this; with Doubleback, Hellmann proves she can stand up to peer pressure.

    –January Magazine, The Rap Sheet , Dick Adler

    Libby Hellmann knows how to reel in a reader, and she does it expertly in DOUBLEBACK. One of the tensest opening scenes ever written is just the introduction to a true puzzler of a thriller. –Tess Gerritsen, NYT Bestselling author of THE KEEPSAKE

    DOUBLEBACK moves with twists, insightful juxtapositions, and many layers. Hellmann doesn’t need to “doubleback.” She’s indisputably crossed the line into the realm of great crime fiction writers. –Crimespree Magazine

    DOUBLEBACK is a high-octane rocket ride through ripped-from-the-headlines issues and across the country…Let’s hope we see much more of the tough-as-nails PI Georgia Davis and her relentless partner Ellie Foreman. –C.J. Box, author of BELOW ZERO
