"A Match Made In Hell" in Sara Paretsky's anthology A Woman's Eye.

The first American woman since 1956 to win the 1991 Edgar Awards given by the Mystery Writers of America for Best Novel. Even so her novels are very good and I highly recommend them. Her Skip Langdon mysteries are about a New Orleans police detective. The Rebecca Schwartz mysteries are about a private attorney in San Francisco, and although I didn't enjoy them as much as her Skip Langdon novels, I did like them.
