The 4-Volume Georgia Davis Series
Chicago PI Georgia Davis burst on the scene in one of the Ellie Foreman books, and Libby knew that one day she would have her own series. She just had to wait for the right story. She found it in Easy Innocence, and Georgia has been on the job ever since. Unlike Ellie, she’s cautious, a loner, and has a lot of baggage. But she’s committed to her job, and underneath her tough exterior beats the heart of a vulnerable woman.
“There’s a new no-nonsense female private detective in town… tough and smart enough to give even the legendary V.I. Warshawski a run for her money.” —Chicago Tribune
“Hellmann brings to life the reality of hazing and bullying among teenage girls with enough twists and turns to keep you reading to the end. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal (starred review)
“Thrilling… Hellmann ratchets up the tension with each chapter.” —Publishers Weekly
Libby’s Four Stand-Alone Historicals
Libby has written four stand-alone historical literary thrillers, all set during periods of intense conflict, ie revolutions and war.

“A tremendous book—sweeping but intimate, elegiac but urgent, subtle but intense.” —Lee Child (Fire)
“A tragically beautiful story around a message that is both subtle and vibrant.” —CrimeSpree Magazine (Veil)
“A many-layered adventure…smart writing, done in accomplished style by an author who never talks down to her readers.”—Mystery Scene Magazine (Havana)
