Staff Reviews

Claire DeWitt is a brilliant, flawed, haunted, utterly bad-ass private detective. With the help of recreational drugs, Chinese medicine, dream theory, the nonsensical text of an enigmatic detective, and her own shrewd genius, she attempts to solve the mysteries of life. As much sociological studies as mysteries, Gran offers a refreshing departure from typical detective fiction. These books are weird and wonderful. --Molly

"A distinctive new American voice in mystery fiction." --NPR's Fresh Air

When Claire DeWitt's ex-boyfriend Paul Casablancas, a musician, is found dead in his Mission District house, Claire is on the case. Paul's wife and the police are sure Paul was killed for his valuable collection of vintage guitars. But Claire, the best detective in the world, has other ideas. Even as her other cases offer hints to Paul's fate--a missing girl in the grim East Village of the 1980s and an epidemic of missing miniature horses in Marin County--Claire knows: the truth is never where you expect it, and love is the greatest mystery of all.
