Faye Quick was meant to be a typist at A Detective Agency, but her boss went off to fight in the Second World War. Faye is now the boss lady. She ain’t your regular tomato, with her sassy air and impertinent questions. This book has a fabulous backdrop, filled with 1940’s slang, USO dances and murder. Staff picks 2007
