Back again. I think this is a site problem, because I can't get the image to upload at all now. I'll keep working on it.

I love it, Libby! I can hardly wait to see it in close-up. The photograph at the bottom of the cover looks like it was taken in Grant Park during the Democratic Convention - or around that time period, anyway. I'm excited to read this!

Re: Please welcome author LIBBY FISCHER HELLMANN

Hi, all. I've just released (well a month ago) an ebook only prequel to my Georgia Davis series. It's called TOXICITY, and it's a police procedural thriller set when Georgia was still a cop. Here's more about it:

 

Here’s a very highly rated bargain  book  by Libby Fischer Hellmann has an outstanding 4.8 star rating and is only 99 cents! If you haven’t read any of Libby Hellmann’s books yet, make sure to check this one out – her books are always popular among ENT readers.

 

“I wasn’t sure what to expect, but was blown away once I began reading. The author’s style is fast paced and exciting. I literally couldn’t put the book down.” F.M. –  Reviewer


Libby Fischer Hellmann
Rating: 4.8 Stars
Genre: Thriller
Price: $0.99

 

Libby Fischer Hellmann’s thriller TOXICITY is as gritty as it is spellbinding. Populated with fully-realized characters, TOXICITY introduces us to Hellmann’s signature heroine, Georgia Davis. But we meet Georgia ten years earlier, when she is a young and determined rookie on a Chicago police force. In Georgia’s debut, we see her tenacity and strength, but also her vulnerability: the seeds sown for the woman she will become. TOXICITY works on all levels, drawing the reader inexorably into a web of deceit, heart-crushing loss, and righteous fury. This wicked brew explodes in a stunning and satisfying conclusion that answers every question. Hellmann pulls no punches.
—J. Carson Black, best-selling author of THE SHOP and DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN

Ten years before EASY INNOCENCE, PI Georgia Davis was a police officer on the force in a Chicago suburb. And while homicides are rare on the North Shore, three bodies turn up in quick succession—all of them dumped in waste disposal dumpsters or landfills. The investigations into the murders test the mettle and professionalism of a combined police task force. Along the way, they also test the strength of Georgia’s relationship with one of the detectives working the case. While Georgia, her detective boyfriend Matt, and his sometime partner John Stone pit their skills against those of an inventive killer, the daughter of a real estate mogul– who just happens to have her eye on Matt — complicates matters. A dark police procedural and thriller, TOXICITY is a prequel to the Georgia Davis PI series (EASY INNOCENCE and DOUBLEBACK).

And here's the Nook link

 

 

Hope you'll check it out!
