Overview

Private investigator Lily White has a client with a faulty moral compass. When the client is arrested for murdering his wife and her alleged lover, Lily follows her intuition and her own leads. If she's wrong, she'll at least know she did her job.

Detroit police detective Derrick Paxton remembers Lily from another case. He understands she suffers from PTSD and thinks her judgment is impaired. He goes after her client and the evidence he needs to close the case. When Lily is kidnapped, the case takes an unexpected turn.

In a sometimes racially divided city, a black cop and a white PI work together to peel back every layer to find the truth. What they find leads them to each other, but do they have enough to bring the true criminals to justice?

An enjoyable, fast-paced read, LILY WHITE IN DETROIT combines nonstop action with an unlikely romance. The main characters are likable, the writing is engaging, and the events that unfold present an intriguing puzzle. As a long-time reader of Harrison's, I was impressed by her debut into this genre and hope this is just the start of many crime fiction books by her. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book.

Lily White is following a woman. She's not a stalker .. she's a PI and the woman's husband wants proof that his wife is having an affair. While Lily is filming the woman knocking on a man's door, she notices that there is a stalker and this stalker is armed with a gun. Her client's wife lies dead. Only days later, her supposed boyfriend is also shot and killed. Detroit Detective Derrick Paxton is investigating both murders. He knows Lily from a prior case. She was helpful then and she's helpful now. Lily suffers from PTSD from a traumatic event many years prior. Paxton knows her history and he thinks her judgment is impaired. When Paxton goes after her client and tries to prove that he hired someone to murder his wife, Lily is adamant that he is innocent. When Lily is kidnapped and held for 3 days, the cases of the murdered woman and man take a twisted turn. Working together, they're having to sift through a lot of lies and secrets to find the truth. What they find leads them to each other, but do they have enough to bring the true criminals to justice? Only 179 pages, this is a quick read, action-packed and entertaining. The author has painted Detroit as it is today with a look toward the future. I like the PI and the cop working together to solve cases ... usually they are very protective of their own territory. There are a few twists and turns, and the suspense is low key, but very present. The characters are solid. Paxton is the son of the police chief. Lily is the daughter of the man who murdered her mother. There is an immediate attraction, but they are both a little wary. He's been married before and she just doesn't do well with relationships. It's fun to see how they interact with each other. Many thanks to the author / The Wild Rose Press / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this crime suspense.
