Donna McLean, author of the bestselling cozy mystery series and recently released box set Sparrow Falls Mystery: Four Novels, introduces a new series with this acclaimed short story inspired by Hammett's Continental Op and The Thin Man. Part searing pulp fiction, part spoof of the genre, now you can read the one that started it all. The Third Vic features the no-nonsense detective that everyone calls The Dame Detective. But be warned - this Dame always gets her man!
Meet Johnny Fracas, crime beat reporter for Georgia's most popular daily rag, as he tries to keep tabs on the hottest private eye in the business. She's out to catch a killer, a tricky one who uses a rare poison that isn't easy to trace. The victims pile up, one by one, night after night, without leaving clues behind them. The mystery is one tough nut to crack, but the Dame Detective is up for the job.

About the Author

Donna McLean’s first venture into writing fiction was the highly praised (but not winning) entry into a short story writing contest judged by very famous and snobby authors. Despite their obvious disdain of pulp, she persisted in her dream of writing intelligent, witty and quirky mystery fiction in the classic style, for the modern age. She also writes the bestselling Sparrow Falls Mystery series of cozy mystery novels, which sometimes features the cat Quinn.
