7/8/2001 Molly Bloom chases trouble
July 8, 2001.It was the nightgown that hooked me: Sunday, July 8, 1:46 A.M. Near Lookout Mountain and Laurel Canyon. An unidentified woman in her mid to late twenties, wearing a nightgown, was the victim of a hit-and-run accident that left her unconscious. There were no witnesses.
That's the opening for Blues in the Night, Rochelle Krich's first novel about freelance reporter Molly Bloom. Molly is happily divorced but her high school sweetheart is back, and he's single. And a rabbi...
"Krich shows that she really knows her stuff...Molly
investigates with both thoroughness and compassion, making this
new sleuth worth her salt." - New York Times Book Review
