In 1987 Mary Wings introduced the character of Emma Victor, and a legend was born. Emma Victor was described by Publishers Weekly as "an interesting and thoroughly likable protagonist" and by Inside Books as "one of the best new detectives around. She's smart and funny and she can sling a one-liner like nobody's business." Wings was hailed as "one of the most exciting authors to find her niche in lesbian mystery writing." She Came Too Late is the first of five sharp-witted and fast-paced books in the Emma Victor series, which counts among its fans, Sandra Scoppettone, Sally Gearhart, and Barbara Wilson. Wisecracking and willful, Emma sets about tracking down a killer as she unearths secrets about high-society Bostonians and a financially failing women's clinic. Discover what legions of fans around the world already know: Emma Victor is a force to be reckoned with, and her creator, Mary Wings, is a talent of gigantic proportions.
