Ten of the best P.I. novel series of all time

Alex Segura is the author of the Miami crime novels featuring Pete Fernandez,. One entry on his list of the top ten P.I. novel series of all time, as shared at The Strand Magazine:
Tess Monaghan by Laura Lippman

Ex-journalist-turned-P.I. Tess Monaghan isn’t your typical boozin’ detective, bemoaning her lot in life. With charm, bravery, and a bit of luck, Tess takes readers in and around Baltimore, with the city playing a key role in the series from page one. Lippman’s strong characters and well-paced plotting make it seem easy, but a body of work so consistently strong and still able to surprise and engage can only be the work of a true master.

Must-reads: Baltimore Blues and Hush, Hush
