DEAD MAN SWITCH Bestselling author Tara Moss returns to crime fiction with a stunning new series, and a stunning new heroine. Meet PI Billie Walker – smart and sexy, with a dash of Mae West humour, she’s a hard-boiled detective with a twist. She’s a woman in a man’s world …
World War II has left Billie Walker a widow, but she’s determined not to rely on any man for her future so she re-opens her late father’s detective agency. Billie’s bread and butter is tailing cheating husbands – it’s easy, pays the bills and she has a knack for it.

straightforward … Soon Billie is up to her stylish collar in bad men, and not just the cheating kind – these are the murdering kind. Smugglers. Players. Gangsters. Billie and her loyal assistant must pit their wits against the
