Description

With a steamy Southern plot and a sassy new heroine, this Edgar Award winning novel debuts an exceptional new series. Attorney Deborah Knott is North Carolina's answer to V.I. Warshawski, a legal sleuth with a knack for sniffing out the most baffling crimes. Deborah has just done the unthinkable-entered the heated race for judge of old-boy-ruled Colleton County. The only female candidate, she's busy reeling in voters and giving campaign speeches. There couldn't be a worse time for Gayle Whitehead to beg Deborah to investigate the 18-year-old, unsolved murder of Gayle's mother, Janie. Gayle wants the busy attorney to poke around for any new clues the police may have missed all these years. Unlikely, thinks Deborah; until she discovers that not all the details of Janie's case made it out of confidential police files. Filled with the patter of Southern voices and populated with a cast of colorful characters, Bootlegger's Daughter expertly unwinds a funny, cunningly-crafted tale of mystery and deceit in North Carolina's backwoods.

Professional reviews

"This Southern plot yields a tale of mystery, deception, drollery and a touch of feminism. In this first Deborah Knott mystery, the relentless pursuer of truth and justice in a murder investigation makes enemies and allies simultaneously. C.J. Critt yields a believable performance as an ambitious Southern woman in an old-fashioned town of good old boys. She doesn't display a great deal of emotion but holds back in a reserved fashion, a tactic that proves to be accurate for Knott's character. Readers find themselves "slowing down" as Critt performs in a more slow-paced Southern style. In addition, Critt exhibits the same sarcastic humor that Knott possesses. B.J.P.
