Brigid Kildare is not your typical hard boiled private eye. But she doesn’t pretend to be.

No matrimonial. no child custody, no bodyguard or surveillance work, no process serving. Brigid is strictly data. Asset searches, background searches, computer security, pre-employment screening. Basically any type of records research is what she deals in.

And you really couldn’t expect anything else. After all, your average five-foot-tall, blue-eyed blonde is rarely the person you would send out after a bail jumper.

Oh, and there’s that whole one leg thing – ADA aside, most people don’t think of an amputee as the go-to person for a security job.

But in Kate Eileen Shannon‘s mystery “Social Insecurity,” professional PI Brigid Kildare turns amateur sleuth when old ladies in the Federal Hill area of Providence start to go missing, and she can’t get the police to believe her.

Brigid, along with an odd cast of friends and family, solves the mystery – but not before four old ladies have died, she has caught the eye of a handsome Providence detective, and she discovers that not everyone who is close to her is what they appear to be.

…there is no neat bow at the end. Oh the mystery is solved. You know whodunit and why and how. But you have a cliff hanger which leads you right into book two, Meditated Murder. So this series is really a serial that must be read from the beginning, in order. It will say that in the front of book two onward. It will say it on Amazon. But people, even people who read, never really read the directions, the instructions, the helpful hints. But you have read this. So now you know, and hopefully understand. The Brigid Kildare Mystery Series is something old that is new again. It is a serial.
