When we meet her in A Bitch Called Hope (2013), it’s been a year since an affair with a married fellow officer got her turfed from the Portland Police. Now she’s trying to make a go of it as a private investigator, but so far all she’s landed are routine, petty stuff like surveillance gigs.
That is, until a wealthy local developer gets whacked…
It was a promising kickoff to as proposed series, and so far it’s been followed by 2016’s Betting Blind and 2018’s All In.
- “A Bitch Called Hope is a well crafted mystery novel with a heroine you can root for, plenty of action and a satisfying ending. I’m looking forward to the next Lennox Cooper novel.”
— Phillip Margolin
- “A noir with heart. Poker-playing ex-cop Lennox Cooper joins the sorority of lonesome gumshoes. Beware, it’s hard to put down.”
— Cara Black
