Read full description of the books:



This book was simply amazing! I read it under 24 hours and lost track of the number of times it made me cry! Forget Rizzoli and Isles this is a proper lesbian detective. This book was part murder mystery and also part social commentary. I bought a recent edition, 2003 and thought it was a modern book set in the 80s, but then I went back and saw that it was actually first published in 1985. It is such an interesting snapshot of the lesbian community at that time. Issues of women being out at work, gay bashing, gay pride, parents rejecting their children. It just hit you on so many levels. The writing was also really good, clear and straightforward like the main character Kate. It was really refreshing to read a lesbian book where the struggle towards a lesbian identity wasn't the focus. Though Kate was mostly in the closet at work she didn't have any issues with her sexuality which was quite refreshing to read. It gave a great perspective on the homophobia that the characters had to face. Reading the book I felt like I really grew to know the murder victim and felt really sad for her loss. I almost wish she'd been a live character at some point as I felt for her so strongly. Without a doubt one of the best novels I've read in ages. Before I was finished I went and bought the next one.
