Soon Kate is knee-deep in a colorful cast of characters and suspects--a sexy gangster; the gangster's ex-wife, who goes by several different aliases and is currently missing; the ex-wife's transexual brother, "Louise"; the dead banker's non-grieving widow. Then there are the good guys, including her potential lover, Mike Torrance, formerly with the San Francisco police and now the FBI, and his oddly unemotional and far-too-pretty partner.
This book is nonstop action--driving here, questioning this suspect, tracing phone records, fingerprints, background checks, car chases, shootings, stalkings. It's a great deal of fun. And if I occasionally got lost in the complex twists and turns of the plot--there were some convoluted scenes with name after name after name thrown out until my head spun--most of the time I didn't care that I didn't know what was going on. I certainly gave up trying to figure it out and assumed all would be explained, which it was.
Kate Gillespie is a likeable, competent, no-nonsense heroine with just that hint of feminine vulnerability that makes me relate to her. I look forward to the next installment of her relationship with Torrance.
If you haven't read the the first three books in this series, you really need to start at the beginning and read them from first to last (Every Move She Makes, Fatal Truth, Deadly Legacy, then Cold Case) in order to get the full benefit of the nail-biting, hair-twisting, massive frustration the rest of us have endured. Not will Kate Gillespie and Mike Torrance survive, not will they figure out the case, not will they get the bad guys... but -- WILL THEY EVER, WELL, YOU KNOW!?!?!?!?!?!
There's a great mystery in each one of Robin's books as a bonus. In COLD CASE, a three-year-old unsolved murder, in which Kate was shot, surfaces along with a bank robbery, another murder, more long-stemmed red roses, and a number of people in disguise. (not to mention that Kate has more than her share of Mocha Lattes!)
So do Kate and Mike actually get together in this book? Does Robin finally give us the goods? Better pick it up and see. You'd hate to read the first three and then miss it when it finally happened, wouldn't you?
