      I tried to go online to find a similar bear head...but when I searched “Big Bear Head” it gave me a San Diego craigslist ad entitled “Big Bear needs some quick head now” and then I just decided to never go on the internet again.--Jenny Lawson

            •  I'm doing my best... (0+ / 0-)

              ...I have two chapters to go on Suzie's Technical Support, which features a female protagonist, a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan.  She's more a merc than a detective, though she does solve crimes...when she's not committing them.

              Here's a tiny taste...

                    So, I was about to turn seventeen and I wasn't doing much of anything, just shuttling back and forth between Mom's place and Dad's place.  They both had new families.  They made me feel as welcome as a car wreck.  They had no choice, I was their daughter, they were obligated until my eighteenth birthday.  But I could see where this was heading.  Little known fact, you can join the Army at seventeen with a parent's permission.  Like, don't sign all at once, they were in that much of a hurry to ditch me.  They didn't even show up at the depot when I got on the bus to basic training.  Mom drove me down to the depot, then drove off without a wave.  I stood around the bus waiting for Dad, he said he'd come to see me off, looking for him until they shouted at me to get on.  That didn't hurt as much as later.

                There's actually a lot more female police detectives, interestingly, than female PIs. Though I did find:
