Darn good first (I guess) attempt. I ran across a later book in this series, so I thought I'd just go ahead and start at the beginning. Such a novel approach! Who knew a young, sexual sculptress (hey, it's British! They talk and write a bit different than us.) could be a crime solver?

Heroine:   solid
Independent, avant-garde metal sculptress and amateur detective Samantha Jones has an uncanny knack for accidentally turning up wherever very bad "stuff" is going down.
Savvier than the police and tougher than the bad guys, sexy Sam serves up equal measures of justice, booze, and humor in between her art sessions and sexcapades.
   What worked for me:
This first-person narrative of a feminista Sam Spade-type flung out so many similes and metaphors it was hard not to feel like the author was poking fun at the gumshoe genre even as she embraced it.    
What didn't work for me:
Despite years of watching imported British comedies, much of the slang went right over my head. I guess I have been watching all the wrong shows?
I am definitely too vanilla to read this entire series back-to-back, but one book here and there makes for an interesting way to break out of a reading rut.
Overall:
Edgy, darkly funny, and very British (not in a tea-and-scones sort of way) this thriller series is the antithesis of the Agatha Christie cozy mysteries. Anyone searching for a hip heroine who refuses to play by society's rules need look no further.
Warning: Very coarse language, graphic violence, casual drug use, and spicy sexual references are the trademark of these books. Not for the politically-correct or the faint-of-heart.
If you liked the Sam Jones series, you might also like: the Stephanie Plum series, or the Women's Murder Club series.

If you're interested in the fatal-femme crime genre (a la _One For The Money_, etc.) then you really should hook up with the writings of Lauren Henderson. This is her first book in the series about Sam Jones, a sculptress in metal works who has a sharp-witted mind, a series of adventurous and sexual escapades with a tongue as fiery as her blowtorch! In this introduction to the series, Sam's former beloved art lecturer is found dead after a wild (and rather hippy!) party. Sam won't let this mystery go unsolved and ends up pursuing the matter through the world of London's art society, often risking herself in the memory of the "dead white female". You can't really get better than this for a series - I personally think that it's faster and spicier than the Evanovich series and for an Australian reader who relates more to Brit culture than American suburbia it really is an enthralling experience. Since it's out of print (shows how popular it is!) you'd most likely find the "Freeze My Margarita" book first to get a glimpse of Sam's wild life and Henderson's pacy writing. If you're into this style or genre, check out tartcity.com for similar writers and get into Henderson as soon as you can!
