    Georgia has her hands full

    I loved this but initially was doubtful because it seemed so different to a ‘usual’ Georgia Davies story. However, I gradually found myself being drawn in and really did enjoy it. I live in the UK and although I follow US politics as you might say from a distance, being so far away I only know what I read in our papers. I don't really know what the American people’s personal view is, so this was refreshing to read. Having said all that, let's talk about the actual story. Georgia certainly has her hands full with this one. Not only that but she also has family issues to deal with at the same time. As always, I enjoyed following Georgia as she fought her way through all the problems. I was rooting for her all the way. Thank you Libby Fischer Hellman for another good read. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    A no-holds barred thriller!

    How do you solve a Murder with 42,000 suspects? This immediately caught my attention and made me want to take a closer look. I’m so glad that I did. I’m a long-time fan of Ms. Hellmann’s work, and Georgia Davis has proven to be one of my favorite characters. This latest addition to the series did not disappoint. While this one is more political in nature, it’s not overtly so, and only seems to enhance the tension in the story. No matter which side of the political aisle you sit on, if you enjoy reading a no-holds barred, high octane mystery/thriller, you will love HIGH Crimes. I highly recommend it!

    A captivating mystery

    This book has two of my favorite things: a good captivating mystery and a setting in Chicago. I love Chicago and can picture the places mentioned, the book is so descriptive. I appreciated the mystery being one I couldn’t solve right away but yet kept my interest and kept me guessing. A series I look forward to following in the next books.

    The fifth A Georgia Davis PI novel

    High Crimes by Libby Fischer Hellmann is the latest edition to The Georgia Davis PI series. Georgia Davis is hired by Erica Baldwin Stewart to find out more about her daughter, Dena’s death. The family received an anonymous email several weeks after her assassination and it bothers them. Dena Baldwin was the leader of ResistanceUSA, a group against the current president with 42,000 followers. Dena was vocal against the current regime and their practices. At a demonstration in Grant Park in Chicago, Dena was assassinated and the gunman, Scott Allen Jarvis, was found dead on a nearby rooftop. Georgia’s search for the truth takes her on a perilous journey. She soon learns that someone does not want the truth to come to light, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to keep their secrets hidden. While handling the case, Georgia’s mother reenters her life. It brings up the old feelings of resentment, abandonment and jealousy. Georgia’s case takes a dangerous turn when people begin disappearing. Her quest for the truth could find Georgia paying the ultimate price. If you have not read the previous books in The Georgia Davis PI series, I recommend beginning with Easy Innocence (the first book). I have not read any of the other novels in this series, and I felt I was missing key details on Georgia. I was not able to get into High Crimes (I ended up reading two other books while attempting to wade through High Crimes). I felt it lacked continuity and an ease. It jumped around to various characters and time periods which I found confusing. I tried to like Georgia, but it did not happen. I especially disliked her sister, Vanna. I found her self-centered and whiny. High Crimes contains an intriguing mystery with various twists that will surprise readers. It is the best part of the book. The writing is extremely detail oriented. Some of the extraneous information could have been eliminated. High Crimes takes punches at our current administration. It is obvious that the author is not a fan of the current president. If you are looking for an escape from all the political goings on in the news, then High Crimes is not the book for you. There is a significant amount of foul language (which I find offensive and unnecessary) and there is intimacy between couples (fair warning) that I was not expecting. As you can tell, I am not the right audience for High Crimes. However, that is the beauty of people and books. We are all unique and like different things. I suggest you obtain a sample of High Crimes to see if it is the right fit for you.
