This is a series of adult fantasy books (not 'adult' as in pornography; just 'adult' as in, the characters are adults, they have sex, there are curse words, there is some disturbingly violent imagery, etc.) It's sort of like . . . Law & Order SVU, but set in a world where there is magic.
The protagonist is a young woman with super-tough fighting skills and a big secret. (Which still isn't fully revealed by the end of Book 1, although there are many tantalizing hints.) She's the familiar "private eye"- type character, who works alone, but on the side of the law, and in cooperation with the police. (And she can beat up all the bad guys.)
I started this book once, listening just for 10-15 minutes here and there, but I couldn't get interested in it and eventually gave up and listened to something else. A few months later, I decided to try again. This time I only listened to the book on long walks, when I had half an hour or longer to listen all at once. That made a big difference, and I could follow the story much better. Once I got maybe halfway through, it became very interesting and I didn't want to stop listening. I'm definitely going to get the others in the series, and I expect them to be pretty easy to get into, now that I'm familiar with the "rules" of this fictional world.
