A different style of writing, but after the first two chapters an entirely intriguing book. I have a new author to chose from.

Laurie R. King is my favorite mystery writer bar none. She is far beyond a mystery writer. She is a literary writer who started here. So feast on the Kate Martinelli novels. The character development is excellent. If you have an issue with gays, you may find issue here, or you may work it out. I hope so, because it would be a shame to miss this delicious and well turned series of novels.

This is great mystery literature. It begins a little cliche, but by the end of the second chapter, I was hooked. The characters are unique and appealing...unless you are a psychiatrist. There are frank breaches of therapeutic boundaries, but, hey, it's fiction. The plot has twists and turns, a subtle hint or two will have you doubting your intuition. An odd thing I noticed is the writing style shifts in the last quarter of the book. I found it mildly annoying, but I'm glad I didn't stop! If I didn't already own such a huge pile of TBRs, I would be searching for the sequel.
