Read full description of the books:
Remembrance of Flings Past... At first P.I. Patricia Delaney is tempted to turn down Gigi Lafferty's odd request to investigate her own past. She doesn't recognize the expensive Cincinnati matron as her old pal Loretta King, once a stripper at Poppy's Parrot, a club on the wrong side of the Ohio River. And by the time she makes the connection, Gigi has vanished, and the police are questioning Patricia about a body she found floating in the Lafferty swimming pool--the body of yet another Poppy's Parrot alumna. It's a deeply disturbing assignment for Patricia, but she sticks with it because Gigi/Loretta once did her the greatest of favors. With luck--and the help of her wonderful computer--she may be able to reciprocate. Only an amoral killer and her own painful past stand in the way...
When Patricia Delaney debuted in 1994, she was a cutting-edge, first-of-her-kind "eGumshoe." Now, the re-released editions (from Cornerstone Communications), with updates to reflect their times, of the Patricia Delaney eGumshoe mysteries still resonate with timeless humanity and passion, while providing a look back at the 1990s, when technology began to change forever how private investigators worked.
