Double Back by Libby Fischer Hellmann
A high-octane rocket ride through ripped-from-the-headlines issues and across the country.
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.”

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
