you are not familiar with Francie, she is the world's finest
consulting detective since Sherlock Holmes. The great-granddaughter
of François Le Villard*, the esteemed detective at the Deuxième
Bureau in Paris -- he worked with Holmes around the turn of the 19th
Century -- Francie had a career as a broadcast journalist but left
it to come to the Monterey Peninsula where her investi-gative genes
kicked in and she began solving cases that were either too big or
too small for law enforcement.
These stories have been released in nine volumes.
