When Harriet Horowitz shoots her abusive husband at a society event, she gives up her luxurious life as a Boca babe, buys a Harley and moves to the edge of the Everglades. She becomes a private investigator and, when a socialite from her former life asks her to investigate the death of a migrant worker, the case brings out her inner vigilante. Dry humor, important emotional issues and interesting and moving details about the lives of field workers in Florida make Dirty Harriet (4.5), by Miriam Auerbach, impossible to put down. Here is a heroine I hope to see again.
