Gainesville, FL, December 05, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- From locating missing persons to scoping out suspected cheaters, private investigator Rachel Cord brings a take-no-prisoners approach to getting the job done. But when she’s asked to look into a spate of brutal gay bashings, what she learns could hit too close to home in ‘Life’s a Bitch. So Am I.’ Rachel Cord, P.I., the new book from author R. E. Conary.
Just released by Outskirts Press (www.outskirtspress.com), the book borrows its feisty title from the slogan on Rachel’s business card. It’s an outlook that serves her well as a gay woman taking on some of the Heartland’s toughest unsolved mysteries. Now, she’s about to accept her most difficult assignments yet, as she sleuths two seemingly unrelated cases: the disappearance of a teenage girl, and the repeated beatings of patrons and performers leaving a popular drag club.
Suddenly, the beatings case takes a personal turn when a woman Rachel has feelings for is killed, sparking a media firestorm in a city gripped by fear. As she delves deeper into the cases, Rachel is plunged into a world of rape, murder, and bizarre sexual fetishes that could point to a shocking conspiracy involving top city leaders if she can survive long enough to get to the bottom of it, that is.
Through it all, Rachel must confront a slew of challenges, from her own depression over a missing loved one to a world where attractive women aren’t taken seriously. But this aggressive private dick is out to show the law enforcement old-boy’s-club how it’s done and she’s not afraid to do whatever it takes.
At once intense, moving and funny, this savvy detective thriller will keep readers guessing right up to the gripping finale.
