From the author of This Doesn't Happen In The Movies, a Readers' Favorite Finalist in Mystery, comes another great suspense story with a dash of humor!
The Lady Who Sang High
Denver private investigator Reed Ferguson is at it again!
Marijuana-store owner Jodie Lundgren suspects that someone is trying to steal her newly developed process for growing marijuana faster and cheaper. She hires Reed to see if this is true or part of her stoner imagination. Reed goes undercover as an employee in Jodie’s store, and he soon discovers that selling weed can be a dangerous business. It doesn’t take long before Reed uncovers secrets and lies that lead to murder. But can he find the killer before his secret identity is discovered?
Along with the usual cast of characters – Reed’s girlfriend Willie, his tech-savvy best friend Cal, and the none-too-bright Goofballs Brothers – that readers have grown to love, The Lady Who Sang High is full of suspense and humor and cleverly pays homage to film noir.
Praise for the acclaimed first novel in the Reed Ferguson mystery series, THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES:
Kirkus Reviews on this private investigator series:
The promising kickoff to Pawlish's comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect PI Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following.
This is one witty, hilarious private detective story that will keep the reader glued to the pages until the very end.
