Seven badass female protagonists helping to redefine modern thrillers

Cristina Alger's new novel is The Banker's Wife. At CrimeReads she tagged seven truly badass female protagonists in thrillers, including:
Never Tell, by Alafair Burke

Drawing on her own experiences as a criminal law professor and deputy district attorney, Alafair Burke writes sharp, brilliant true-to-life suspense. Never Tell features Ellie Hatcher, a young, tenacious New York City detective, who is tasked with investigating the alleged suicide of a wealthy sixteen year old girl. If you love this book, you’ll be thrilled (as I was) to learn that it’s one of a series featuring the smart, tough, tenacious Ellie Hatcher.
