PI Nikki Griffin – a badass bookseller who punishes abusers – is back in S. A. Lelchuk's One Got Away

Nikki Griffin, a private-investigator when she isn’t running her small bookstore, is on a case. The matriarch of one of the wealthiest San Francisco families has been defrauded by a con-man, and her furious son enlists Nikki to find the money. And find the con-man.

Nikki isn’t a fan of men who hurt women. Her secret mission, born of revenge and trauma, is to do everything she can to remove women from dangerous situations—and to punish the men responsible.

As Nikki follows the trail toward the con-man, she realizes that no one involved is telling her the whole truth. When the case overlaps with her attempt to protect a woman in trouble, and Nikki’s own life is put in danger, Nikki has to make terrible choices about who to save—and how to keep herself alive.

Praise For…

“Rollicking...This breakneck-paced unapologetically bloody fun.”Publishers Weekly

“Bookseller/private detective Nikki Griffin lands in hot water when she takes on a wealthy new client...The nearly fearless and deeply empathetic Nikki is ridiculously easy to root for, and the pace is fast and furious all the way to a deeply satisfying finale. A smashing sequel. More please.” Kirkus Reviews

“Fans of the first book or of hard-boiled women detectives in general will relish this heroine’s latest outing, especially given that Lelchuk’s writing is more nuanced and atmospheric than that found in hard-boiled mysteries of old. Those who followed...TV’s Dexter are another audience... A fine choice for mystery collections.” Booklist

Save Me From Dangerous Men pulses with daring and risk. Nikki Griffin, bookseller by day and private investigator by night, takes on men who hurt women and makes them sorry. Calm, complex, lethal, and fascinating, she’s the revenge fantasy you want right now.
