The follow-up to Save Me from Dangerous Men--a Kirkus Reviews Best Mysteries & Thrillers of the Year, Booklist The Year's Best Debut Crime Novels, and one of USA Todays Best-reviewed Titles of the Year--One Got Away follows badass bookseller/private detective Nikki Griffin on a mission to capture a San Francisco con-man. S.A. Lelchuk will be in conversation with Randal Brandt, the head of cataloging and curator of the California Detective Fiction Collection at the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley.
Nikki Griffin, a private-investigator when she isn't running her small bookstore, is on a case. The matriarch of one of the wealthiest San Francisco families has been defrauded by a con-man, and her furious son enlists Nikki to find the money. And find the con-man.
Nikki isn't a fan of men who hurt women. Her secret mission, born of revenge and trauma, is to do everything she can to remove women from dangerous situations--and to punish the men responsible.
As Nikki follows the trail toward the con-man, she realizes that no one involved is telling her the whole truth. When the case overlaps with her attempt to protect a woman in trouble, and Nikki's own life is put in danger, Nikki has to make terrible choices about who to save--and how to keep herself alive.
