Tatum (Tayt) Waters owns a couple of fledgling businesses, a small one-person cleaning service and a security firm. However, her security firm fronts for another sideline; she’s a vigilante of sorts and is a woman with a mission. That mission is to help people who have been failed by the justice system. She is determined for them to get their just rewards ... one way or another.

Things are going okay, slow but okay, until her estranged father shows up, asking for help. Tayt is still bitter toward her father, but that changes somewhat when he becomes the key suspect in a local murder case involving a young woman. She doesn’t believe it. She knows her father well and can’t consider that he could be involved. Tayt decides to clear her father's name, wanting to find who is framing him and why. As she digs into the case, she begins to find things are more complicated than she anticipated. Things heat up when she is threatened but she won’t be deterred. That is, if she can stay alive.

Subversion: A Tayt Waters Mystery by J.P. Choquette is a nicely written simple mystery without explicit sex, language or violence. The author has created strong female characters in Tayt and her friend and mentor, PI Judy. Together they make a very good team. There are also some interesting male characters as well, including one nasty bad guy. The dialogue is done very well without the use of bad language. I enjoyed this easy to read story very much.
