Novelist Libby Fischer Hellmann Presents Her New Novel: “DoubleBlind”
April 12 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
On Tuesday, April 12th at 6:30 PM, The Book Stall (811 Elm Street in Winnetka) is delighted to present Libby Fischer Hellmann (High Crimes) as she introduces the latest novel in her Chicago-based Georgia Davis PI series, “DoubleBlind.” This live program is recommended for mystery and thriller fans and is free and open to the public.
About the Book: With little work during the pandemic, Chicago PI Georgia Davis agrees to help the best friend of fellow sleuth, Ellie Foreman. Susan Siler’s aunt died suddenly after her Covid booster, and Susan’s distraught mother wants the death investigated.
However, Georgia’s investigation is interrupted by a family trip to Nauvoo, Illinois, the one-time Mormon heartland. It’s there that her life unexpectedly intersects with the runaway spouse of a Mormon Fundamentalist.
Back in Evanston, after Georgia is almost killed by a hit and run driver, she discovers that she and the escaped woman look remarkably alike. Is someone trying to kill Georgia because of her death investigation? Or is it a case of mistaken identity? And how can Georgia find her doppelganger before whoever wants them both dead tries again?
The Chicago Tribune says of the series, “There’s a new no-nonsense female private detective in town: Georgia Davis, a former cop who is tough and smart enough to give even the legendary V.I. Warshawski a run for her money.”
