The Last Gig by Norman Green

Al was never real close to her father.  He was gone a lot in military service and he was not a loving dad.  What he taught her were survival skills for the streets.  No man was going to take advantage of his daughter.  She learned those skills and added more to her repertoire as time progressed.  Right now, she's one mean machine.

Witness Impulse and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you). The book has been published and you can grab a copy now.

She's working for an ex-cop that's an "ex" because he walked back and forth over the line of legal.  She repossesses cars, plays pool well enough to win $20 a game (or more), and she does whatever detective work of all kinds.  She'll follow men or women having affairs, find missing money and who took it, and anything else that sounds interesting.  But when a high roller comes in and asks her to take his case and look for a thief in his midst, she's not too enthused.  Then she finds out his son died six months ago, right at the time the loads were getting hijacked.  She thinks they may be related.  She knows so when a bunch of toughs rough her up.  They're planning on raping her but someone interceded, saving her.  They tell her to back off the case.  All she does is get more determined...

The story is complex and high tension all the way through.  More than one major player is brought to his knees by Al.  She's near death for most of the story.  But she's a tough woman.  Her father taught her well.
