Dead Language and Other Stories, the latest in the thrilling Elvira Slate Investigations 1940s feminist crime series
Praise for Elvira Slate Investigations
'In Elvira Slate, Jacey has created a slick Forties sleuth that could inspire the toughest 21st century feminist.’
'Elvira Slate is everything we need in a female sleuth, an outsider with nothing to lose and a nose for the truth. She’s a beacon of light in a shoddy and corrupt world.’
‘She is the noir anti-heroine we’ve long been missing.’
"A tough, street-wise female detective Philip Marlowe would have been proud to work with.’"
‘If like me you wanted Forties noir films to stop following the male gumshoe and follow the fascinating sassy dame and brassy broads then this book is for you.’
