PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Vancouver-based author Mary Keliikoa has a new book out that hits close to home — literally.

Derailed is a mystery novel that takes place right here in Portland. It features Kelly Pruett, a detective who critics say is about to join ranks of mystery’s most clever and crafty female sleuths likes Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone or Alexander McCall Smith’s Precious Ramotswe.

Keliikoa joined AM Extra Tuesday to talk more about using the Rose City as the backdrop.
