The Tulip Shirt Murders by Heather Weidner
Private investigator Delanie Fitzgerald, and her computer hacker partner, Duncan Reynolds, are back for more sleuthing in The Tulip Shirt Murders. When a local music producer hires the duo to find out who is bootlegging his artists’ CDs, Delanie uncovers more than just copyright thieves. And if chasing bootleggers isn’t bad enough, local strip club owner and resident sleaze, Chaz Smith, pops back into Delanie’s life with more requests. The police have their man in a gruesome murder, but the loud-mouthed strip club owner thinks there is more to the open and shut case. Delanie and Duncan link a series of killings with no common threads. And they must put the rest of the missing pieces together before someone else is murdered.
The Tulip Shirt Murders is a fast-paced mystery that appeals to readers who like a strong female sleuth with a knack for getting herself in and out of humorous situations such as larping and trading elbow jabs with roller derby queens.
My Take: This is the second in the Delanie Fitzgerald mystery series. I haven't read the first one but I probably will go back and read it because I liked this book. I wasn't lost reading this book so you probably don't need to read the first one first. Delanie was a good main character and of course she put herself into some dangerous situations but that is what kept the tension high and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. I would recommend this book if you like your mysteries fast paced and action packed. I enjoyed her partner and the dog sidekick. Overall a pretty good read.
I received a review copy of this book from Pump Up Your Book in exchange for my honest opinion.
