Editorial Reviews


Cass Milam is the most lovable butch in Austin, Texas, and maybe in all of lesbian literature. Azolakov's smoothly flowing style creates a gripping thriller and a world of characters that... readers will want to hear more of. --Lizard Louise Reviews

Antoinette Azolakov was born in Lufkin, Texas in 1944. Her father was in the U.S. Navy when she was born, and the Navy broke radio silence to tell him he had a baby girl. Antoinette has hardly been silent since. She taught high school English and Latin, worked in an explosives plant, as a welder, as a gas station attendant, as a landscape gardener and as a pet sitter. Her writing credits include several short stories and poems in various publications, four lesbian mysteries, and now her latest work, Ghostly Voices: Thirteen Texas Ghosts, available on Kindle. She is currently working on a new novel, Andrew Sparrow, set in early Texas. Her novel Skiptrace won the first Lambda Book Award for Best Lesbian Mystery.

Format: Paperback
I've had this novel banging about my collection for years, about fifteen or so, and I always wanted to read it, but it always got put aside for something else, and eventually it got packed away and forgotten about. Then I had to look for something else, found a box of forgotten books, and there on top was "Skiptrace" and it got put aside again. This time I decided to make sure that it got read, and I'm glad that I did.

Now, I didn't realize until I had started reading "Skiptrace" that this is a sequel to an earlier novel called "Cass And The Stone Butch" a novel that I haven't read, but would like to someday. But, be that as it may, this is the novel that I read, and this is the one that I'm reviewing. Here Cass Milam has hired Dean Caney to track down Cass' first lover, whom Cass had lost touch of many years ago.

She had hired Dean because of his friendly relationship with Cass and her circle of friends, but then trouble happens. Sandy Marigold, one of Cass' friends has been brutally murdered, and Dean has disappeared.

It then gets worse. It seems that there are witnesses that saw Dean hanging around Sandy's house a lot, and he was there for an extended amount of time on the day when Sandy was killed. Ticked off that she can't get a hold of Dean, and wanting to get a hold of her old lover, and upset over her dependence on a man to do a job that Cass thinks that she can do just as well, she decides to look for her old lover herself. What follows is both a road trip as Cass trucks, literally, across Texas meeting those people who knew her old girlfriend and a cat-and-mouse story in which the killer is shadowing Cass the whole time, and yes, Cass knows that the killer is after her and/or her old lover.
