4/14/1991 The Turquoise Tattoo is revealed
April 14, 1991. This date saw the publication of The Turquoise Tattoo, the first novel in Nancy Baker Jacobs' series about Devon MacDonald, a female private eye in Minneapolis. Kirkus Reviews said "Original plotting, competent writing and a heroine who's gutsy but no Superwoman make this one a welcome addition to the genre."
