This was an introduction to Fischer Hellmann for me: while I'm not a big fan of detective fiction in short stories (no character development, plot moves too quickly and the ending is usually sensational), I did enjoy the author's style, especially in the first story in which the theme is very different from the other stories. This collection was a good way to get acquainted Hellmann's work and I would definitely read her detective novels if just to get to know Georgia David and Ellie Foreman better.The author's introduction to each story is also welcome for setting and insights.
