A Miranda Corbie Mystery

Miranda Corbie has been called a female Sam Spade or Rick Blaine, a cross between Myrna Loy and Barbara Stanwyck, and a “great new dame in crime fiction” by Linda Fairstein.  

Miranda is all of this and more. She is a woman of her time and more than her time… a woman in a world that is fast running out of time. 

The Miranda Corbie series is about a world on the brink of cataclysmic changes. About a  San Francisco and a California and a 1940 America that the textbooks and movies don’t show you. A different kind of noir, a different kind of thriller. 

Most of all, the series is about a woman… defeated but not vanquished, broken but undaunted, a Red Cross nurse torn apart by the Spanish Civil War where she served, a paid escort, and now a private investigator.
