Charlotte “Charlie” Swift prefers working alone. That’s why after eight years as an Air Force investigator she became a PI rather than a cop. She lives alone, she works alone, and aside for the occasional flirtation with sexy cop Connor Montgomery or her hunky neighbor Father Dan, she likes it that way. Then her silent partner flees the country, leaving his wife, Gigi, with nothing but the house, the Hummer, and a half interest in Swift Investigations. Charlie ends up with a heap of debt and Gigi, who has decided to be a not-so-silent partner. This change comes about while Charlie is trying to find the mother of a baby abandoned on a client’s doorstep. While following leads, she sends Gigi out on crazy assignments, hoping that the pampered socialite will be driven to quit. However, when the baby’s mother turns up dead, there’s a murderer on the loose, and Charlie will need all the help she can get.

Swift Justice is a Lefty Award finalist for best humorous mystery.

The bear had toppled my bird feeder again, the two aspirin I’d gulped with a swig of Pepsi weren’t making a dent in my headache (note to self: don’t try to match Father Dan drink for drink ever again), and I was late for my first appointment of the week. As the owner and currently sole employee of a private investigation business teetering on the edge of solvency, I couldn’t afford to piss off potential clients by being tardy. Unfortunately, the woman tapping her foot outside the door of Swift Investigations did not look like a happy camper when I screeched

Praise for Swift Justice

"The story is well crafted, and this series should appeal to readers who enjoy a good puzzle mystery with a side of slapstick."--The Boston Globe

"Though Gigi's disastrously silly scrapes exasperate Charlie, readers will eat them up in this charming series debut by DiSilverio."--Kirkus Reviews

"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."--RT Book Reviews (4 stars) 

"The relationship between these two women is comparable to Evanovich's, Stephanie and Lulu, and the two make one laugh-out-loud odd couple."--Newport Beach Public Library
