  1. Rosemary HUGHES

    A young man seeks Ms Hewitt’s assistance with finding his birth mother.
    In the process another situation causes Ms Hewitt to assist in investigating a crime which the young man had been accused of commiting.
    Again, this series is similar to another couple of female detective stories that have previously been released. I suppose it is the era when woman doing what was previously deemed a man only occupation is part of the attraction of the genre. Each story is individual as the crimes and the people participating in them.
