Private eye Kate gives you a real break. She is efficient, witty and a no- nonsense person. Itīs really a change to read, for once, about a woman sleuth, that is not constantly made fun of like Stephanie Plum /Jana Evanovic or gets into just too tight corners fighting for political correctness in Chicago like V.I. Warshawski/Paretsky (see “Hard Time”).
I chuckled along reading about her venture into the rest of Europe, like Germany, France, Italy, which she manages without any fear and doubt. And itīs also nice to follow a logical plot, a solid story.
