Stella Hardesty is the kind of woman to know. Especially if you were another woman. I could tell that by page six. She likes to drink her Johnny Walker straight and might be considered a little rough around the edges at first glance. But having her cell number programmed into your phone is definitely a good idea.
Stella dealt in matters of crime and punishment, too. Only her methods weren’t exactly endorsed by the Police Union. Her brand of justice was doled out in secret, in back alleys and secluded shacks, in the dead of night, far away from any citizens who might be startled by the screams of the latest woman-abusing cretin who was having his attitude adjusted.
See what I mean?
Stella is the heroine in Sophie Littlefield’s latest crime novel A Bad Day for Pretty and she kicks ass. This funny and surprising adventure sort of sold me just by the book jacket.
The blues, the pink, the anonymous lady with with the baseball bad—there was this air of femininity mixed with grit that made me eager to find out who this Stella was and what her tale might tell.
It was a good one.
