Tracer’s Blues by N.C. Hyzy. Publisher: Julie Hyzy, July 2011
Bets is introduced in an anthology of three short stories that give you an idea of what life is like for an inexperienced girl trying to establish herself as a PI in Chicago.
She needs help, and though she gets it from an unlikely source, she never seems to rise above the rank of amateur.
The three shorts are “Blue Angel,” “Something Blue,” and “Blue Morning.”
This is a fun read watching Bets takes on small cases and handle the big cases with gusto despite making rookie mistakes. This is an enjoyable collection of short stories with my favorite being “Blue Morning.” I hope we get to see more of Bets Tracer.
