Swift Justice manages to be serious and funny at the same time. While the plot has some very serious topics, DiSilverio lightens the tone through scenes with Gigi, who’s always good for a laugh. One of the best aspects of the book is Charlie’s relationship with cop Connor Montgomery, because it turns the clichéd cop/P.I. relationship on its ear.
Charlotte “Charlie” Swift is a private investigator with her own business who enjoys working alone. That is, until she finds out that her silent partner has left his wife and his business. Gigi now must work with Charlie to support her children but as a former hairdresser, the transition won’t be smooth. At the same time, Charlie is working on a case dealing with a missing girl, an abandoned baby and a religious zealot. Can Charlie and Gigi manage to keep everyone safe?
