Save Me from Dangerous Men

The new Lisbeth Salander who Jack Reacher would love! A must-read for 2019

Do you want women to do the rescuing? Are you craving a strong, independent heroine who can save herself? Did you love Killing Eve?
Then this book is for you.

Nikki Griffin is Villanelle – but she’s on your side. 

Bookseller by day. Bad ass by night.

Nikki Griffin owns a bookshop in California that has a resident cat, Bartleby. She drinks neat Jameson and rides an Aprilia motorcycle. She’s a Private Investigator who spends her days talking about books and her nights fighting for women – and she could beat you in a fight, blindfolded.

Nikki is the hero you’ve been waiting for.

When she's hired to tail a woman accused of selling company secrets by the CEO, she thinks it will be just another job. By the time she realises that something is off, it’s already too late – a body has been found. Suddenly, Nikki is pulled into a race to find answers before somebody finds her.

The bad guys may have started this – but Nikki is going to finish it.


'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

'Lelchuk has created a fabulously compelling central protagonist in Nikki Griffin, a psychologically disturbed woman with her heart in the right place'

'One of my most favourite things about this novel is the literary allusions and references littered throughout the narrative'

'Wonderfully entertaining'
