Easy Innocence | [Libby Fischer Hellmann]

Easy Innocence

Removed from the gritty streets of Chicago, the residents of the North Shore sleep easily in their million dollar homes. Easily, that is, until a local girl is discovered bludgeoned to death in the woods. Quick to blame the man with the bat, the North Shore returns to its version of normalcy. But the accused's sister isn't so willing to forget and hires Georgia Davis - former cop and newly-minted PI - to look into the incident.

Publisher's Summary

Removed from the gritty streets of Chicago, the residents of the North Shore sleep easily in their million-dollar homes. Easily, that is, until a local girl is discovered bludgeoned to death in the woods. Quick to blame the man with the bat, the North Shore returns to its version of normalcy. But the accused's sister isn't so willing to forget and hires Georgia Davis - former cop and newly-minted PI - to look into the incident.

What Georgia finds hints at a much different, darker answer. It seems that some privileged, preppy schoolgirls on Chicago's North Shore have learned just how much their innocence is worth to hot-under-the-collar businessmen. And while these girls can now pay for Prada, iPhones, and Jimmy Choos with their earnings, they don't realize that their new business venture may end up costing them more than they can afford.

What the Critics Say

"A story with enough twists and turns to keep you reading to the end. Highly recommended." (Library Journal, starred review)

“Just what’s needed in a mystery…Depth of characterization sets this new entry apart from a crowded field. (Kirkus Reviews)

“Libby Hellmann can get into the mind of a character, whether the character is a mentally ill man or a teenage girl. I kept reading after the first brutal and fascinating pages because I…wanted to know what would happen to the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly people. PI Georgia Davis, the no-nonsense heart of this tale, is an original who cuts through the surface of the wealthy Chicago suburban North Shore and finds a darkness I didn’t see coming. This is good stuff, very good stuff.” (Stuart M. Kaminsky, Grand Master, Mystery Writers of America)

    Story
    "Better than expected"

    The author, Libby Fischer Hellmann asked me to review two of her books. I first listened to Toxicity and wasn't overly impressed. Since the author indicated that she wasn't thrilled with the narrator chosen for Easy Innocence, I expected that this listen would be similar to the other. It wasn't. Both the story and narration, in my view, were much better in this installment. There was less focus on trivia that would only be meaningful to those with a knowledge of Jewish theology and customs. And the story, although pretty disgusting and somewhat imagination-stretching, kept me interested and plugged in. I like evil characters who are ultimately defeated. And this book had some very evil characters who ultimately met their demise. I also like that Georgia has her imperfections and doesn't always choose correctly. Her character works very well in this story. I will probably try another installment.

    "Too bad"

    I object to all stereotyping and was very disappointed to find that in this book. Too bad, as the issues, teenage prostitution and peer pressure, otherwise were well approached.
