Detective Fiona Fitzgerald is an unlikely force for justice in Washington, D.C.'s predominantly male police force. As a senator's daughter and top investigator in the homicide division of the Metropolitan Police Department, Fiona maneuvers between two vastly different worlds, moving quickly from opulent state galas to gritty crime scenes. Born into the elite social circles of the nation's capital, and armed with intimate knowledge of the true face of the political establishment, Fiona is determined to expose the chicanery concealed within the highest echelons of the American political aristocracy.
Former Washington Post reporter Jason Martin knows there's something secretive going on in the high echelons of politics, and he's determined to find a way to prove it. Beautiful and naïve Dorothy Curtis becomes the key to Jason's plan, which he hopes will put them both back on track. Can he give the sextet of the most powerful men in Washington an expiration date on their greedy endeavors?
When Dorothy's body is found at the bottom of the Duke Ellington Memorial Bridge, everyone assumes it was suicide over a lover. But Fiona Fitzgerald has her doubts. Fiona knows that in this town, power and money come before love. Unfortunately, this death hits a little too close to home, and Fiona wrestles with her own feelings about love as she finds herself empathizing with Dorothy. When Fiona and Jason collide, the power lies in the truths they reveal, truths that will bring down the sextet and help them both come to terms with their own demons.

What a tangled web he weaves...
What did you love best about American Sextet?
Definitely the character of Dorothy and the sweetness she brings to a story filled with corruption
What other book might you compare American Sextet to and why?
American Quartet, the first book in the Fiona Fitzgerald Mysteries series. I prefer this book as I am enjoying seeing the development of Fiona as a character.
What does Lillian Yves bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She brings all the characters to life in a way that I don't think I would have appreciated by reading the book myself. Her voice modernises the story and brings it forward to the 21st century beautifully.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
'No Place for Good Women'

Fiona is portrayed as very human, with a lot of doubts. She also knows the political side in her job, and dealing with them. Well written and enjoyed. Narration was good given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
