Better Off Dead
Denise Danks


In her second case, computer journalist Georgina Powers – a character the author admits was inspired by ‘George’, a member of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five  ΜΆ  dives into the world of pop music to investigate the fate of rising star Carla Blue, who has died in iconic rock fashion by a combination of drugs and swimming pool. The trail leads Georgina into the far from glamorous lifestyle of the rich and famous and into a resurgent East End gangland where she acquires some very dangerous enemies. In his 2008 study Great British Fictional Detectives, the former chairman of the Crime Writers’ Association Russell James claims: “Georgina is no computer nerd. She’s a modern metropolitan woman whose experience of sex is as complex and diverse as is her knowledge of computers.”
