FOR AN UNUSUAL HEROINE in an unconventional mystery, try Little Lamb Lost (Oceanview Publishing, 978-1-933515-51-9) by Margaret Fenton. Her protagonist, social worker Claire Conover, shows herself as smart, human, and maybe too brave for her own good as she refuses to let the drug death of a little boy be foisted on the forlorn and obviously scared mother. Fenton knows her social agencies and bureaucrats and, for a newcomer, concocts a persuasive plot of secrets and menace.
