A Mystery

A Charlie and Gigi Mystery

Minotaur Books

When world-class figure skater Dmitri Fane goes missing, his partner knows just whom to hire. It’s up to Swift Investigations to find the missing Fane, and fast---the Olympics are just weeks away. It should be no trouble for the investigative team of Charlie Swift and Gigi Goldman: Their chief obstacle is Gigi’s teenage daughter, Kendall, and her mad crush on Fane. That is, until the skating team’s coach is brutally attacked and a colleague of Dmitri is killed, and things start to get complicated. 

Gigi’s corralling a lovesick Kendall and dying to test out the hilarious techniques from her surveillance class. Charlie’s dodging bullets and fending off Detective Connor Montgomery’s advances. Their client is suddenly MIA. Can Charlie and Gigi solve two missing-persons cases and a murder at once, or will the culprit get off skate-free?

Fast-paced adventure, high-stakes intrigue, and the madcap capers of these unlikely partners-in-crime solving make Swift Edge a delightful and welcome addition to the series.

Praise for Swift Edge

In DiSilverio's amusing second mystery featuring Colorado Springs PI Charlotte "Charlie" Swift (after 2010's Swift Justice), Dara Peterson, half of the championship ice skating team of Peterson and Dmitri Fane, wants to hire Charlie to find Dmitri, who's gone missing just days before the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Dmitri turns out to have lots of baggage, including a gambling problem, an imperious Russian skating coach, and bitter rivals. Charlie's untrained partner in Swift Investigations, Georgia "Gigi" Goldman, and Gigi's 15-year-old daughter, Kendall, the agency's part-time receptionist, prove as much hindrance as help. Meanwhile, Episcopal priest Dan Allgood asks Charlie to locate a runaway Asian kid called Kungfu, who's disappeared from the homeless shelter Allgood runs. Allgood and CSPD Det. Connor Montgomery provide romantic frissons for Charlie as she juggles the two complex and dangerous cases with aplomb. Readers will look forward to seeing more of Charlie and her tw
