Kim Hunt writes about the sort of kick ass female protagonists you rarely see in crime fiction. Working class butch heroes, fierce femmes, gender outlaws, queers and precious misfits. Characters fit for post-millennium readers.

Readers seem to like this; there's an appetite for something different.
