*** Praise for One Got Away ***

‘A fast-paced and frenzied thriller that will keep [readers] guessing right up until the end… The author does a great job at making seemingly random events come together in a way that does not feel last-minute or hastily put together… In short, Nikki Griffin is one spectacular heroine…and Lelchuk's One Got Away is one seriously entertaining read’ USA Today

‘There will be kidnappings, blackmail and twists…Lelchuk delights in showing just how shady everyone turns out to be’ New York Times Book Review

‘Rollicking...This breakneck-paced thriller...is unapologetically bloody fun’ Publishers Weekly

‘Bookseller/private detective Nikki Griffin lands in hot water when she takes on a wealthy new client...The nearly fearless and deeply empathetic Nikki is ridiculously easy to root for, and the pace is fast and furious all the way to a deeply satisfying finale. A smashing sequel. More please’ Kirkus Reviews

One Got Away is a delightfully complicated mystery, one that constantly keeps readers --- much like Nikki herself --- on their toes’ Bookreporter.com

‘Fans of the first book or of hard-boiled women detectives in general will relish this heroine’s latest outing, especially given that Lelchuk’s writing is more nuanced and atmospheric than that found in hard-boiled mysteries of old. Those who followed...TV’s Dexter are another audience... A fine choice for mystery collections’ Booklist

*** Praise for SAVE ME FROM DANGEROUS MEN ***
 

'Pulses with daring and risk. Nikki Griffin, bookseller by day and private investigator by night, takes on men who hurt women and makes them sorry. Calm, complex, lethal, and fascinating, she’s the revenge fantasy you want right now' Taylor Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of Liars’ Paradox and The Informationist
 

'Action packed and razor sharp - Jack Reacher would love Nikki Griffin' Lee Child

'Save Me from Dangerous Men is one of those rare thrillers that draws you in so relentlessly that you find yourself getting kicked out of bed and reading all night on the sofa. If you’re a fan of Jack Reacher or Lisbeth Salander, you are gonna love Nikki Griffin. This is an outstanding debut novel to what promises to be an exceptional series. Highly, highly recommended'   Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of the acclaimed Pendergast series
