Easy Innocence (Georgia Davis) by Libby Fischer Hellman

Libby introduces a new PI in this engaging novel. Georgia Davis feels like a real person, with her own doubts and faults without turning into a dark, angst-ridden alchoholic kind of character. Hired to absolve a mentally deficient sex offender of murder charges she is drawn into the world of teenage girls and prostitution.
The mystery is interesting enough, there's enough action and just the right bit of social commentary. The portrayal of the youtful society felt very real, terrible as it may be. Fans of Libby's Ellie Foreman series will be happy to see mentions of her in several pages.
I'm looking forward to seeing more of Georgia, absolutely a Daughter of Spade to be reckoned with.
