The Wild Winter Swan by Gregory Maguire

Review by Jaye Lawrence

Not since Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin have I so enjoyed the page-turning yarn of a New York private detective and a wisecracking sidekick! In Fortune Favors The Dead, Stephen Spotswood simultaneously nails the tone of classic detective stories and stands them on their head – because the brilliant gumshoe is Lillian Pentacost, a disabled middle-aged woman, and her sidekick Willowdean “Will” Parker, a gender-bending young circus performer with a sweet spot for the ladies. A delight from start to finish. Dare I hope this is the beginning of a series?
