Item description for Dupe (Anna Lee Mysteries) by Liza Cody...
Winner of Britain's John Creasey Award for Best First Novel of 1980 Anna quit the London police force because it was a dead end for women, but her job with Brierly Security isn't a whole lot livelier. Her boss doesn't much approve of female investigators, and her assignments tend toward the frustratingly genteel. The Jackson case doesn't look like a big improvement. Ambitious, unpleasant young Deirdre Jackson has died, the apparent victim of a car accident on a lonely stretch of highway, and her parents want to know what their black-sheep daughter was up to in her last few months. Anna's job, she knows, is to ask a few questions, write a report, and collect the Jacksons' check. But the more questions she asks about Dee's life, the more questions arise about her death. Answering them could land Anna in the hospital . . . or the morgue. But it could also be her ticket out of the pink-collar ghetto.

Meet, Anna Lee: British PI Sep 13, 2003
If one enjoys the American sisterhood of hard-boiled private investigators, check out Liza Cody's Anna Lee, for the UK version. Anna is a hard working single, surrounded by quirky but likeable supporting characters,who help and hinder, British style. In this case, a young woman is killed in what may be an accident, however, the girl's parents insist there was foul play. With true British determination Anna deals with suspects, criminals, and uncovers another mystery that appears to tie in with her case, involving the pirating of American films. She is unaware of some serious danger ahead. Some American readers may find the liberal peppering of British slang an acquired taste, but it's not difficult to decipher and makes Cody interesting to read. Anna spouts off some strong opinions about the rich and powerful Hollywood film industry, but it merely adds another dimension to the humble sleuth. In this book, there is not intense suspense, but rather the methodical gathering of evidence until the climax, which was sudden, but handled rather well. I liked the British investigator, Anna Lee. Great snowy,icy,windy and miserable English winter ambience. I want to read the next in the series.
