Review

5 star review from BigAl's Books and Pals, January 7, 2016:

I've read and reviewed four of the five previous books in this series, loving each of them. Going from memory, prior reviews have focused on the main characters, narrator and protagonist Karen Seagate, a recovering alcoholic with many imperfections, offset by a desire to do well, and her sidekick, Ryan Miner, her polar opposite, a devout Mormon family man. I've previously talked about how well the fictional city of Rawlings, Montana and the secondary characters reflect the geography and culture of the area it would be in, were it a real place. All of these things are still true. Maybe it's time to talk about plot.

The short version is, the plots are good, with
TheReveal as my favorite thus far. In this particular story we kick off with the murder of Virginia Rinaldi, a professor at the local college. Virginia's liberal outlook has challenged and sometimes riled up the locals, including some of her peers, but she is almost universally loved by her students.

As Seagate and Miner investigate, they uncover a plethora of suspects and additional crimes are committed that may or may not be related to the initial murder. Just when I thought I'd figured out who did what, something new would happen to shake things up, and I, along with Seagate and Miner, would be forced to reevaluate. In the end, they figured it out. I was kept guessing until the end, even second guessing whether they'd arrested the right person until they'd tied up all the loose ends. This one kept me up late, eager to find out whodunit.

From the Author

The Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery series comprises six books:
  1. Big Sick Heart
  2. Deviations
  3. The Broken Saint
  4. Three-Ways
  5. Fractures
  6. The Reveal
Like the five previous books, The Reveal is narrated by Detective Karen Seagate. She is 43, a recoveringalcoholic who is trying to figure out how to deal with her disease, aby-the-book chief, and a world that, in general, makes little sense. She wants to dislike her young partner, Ryan Miner, a sharp, cheerfulMormon with a wife and three kids, but with this, as with most of herlife goals, she fails. She relies on Ryan in many ways, and he isstarting to figure out how to work with her without getting cut by hersharp edges.

I became interested in the subject of pornography on campus while reading about it in academic trade journals. I was auniversity professor for some years, but I didn't hang out in the dormsand fraternities or talk with students about life there. I hadn'trealized that online pornography had become such a prominent feature ofcollege life that universities have had to create policies regulatingthe downloading of porn in dormitories--and showing it at universityevents on campus. There are many, many academic courses about thesubject--courses that themselves sometimes test the limits ofappropriate academic offerings. Who knew? Not me.

As DetectiveKaren Seagate enters into this weird and frightening world, she remainsfoul-mouthed, cynical, rude, depressed, and insubordinate. She liesconstantly and assumes that most of what people say is untrue. Sheexpects nothing good to happen to her and is rarely surprised. She's too high-maintenance for most men and for all bosses. Really, there wouldbe no good reason for anyone to want to have anything to do withher--except that she is extremely good at figuring out which liar isalso a killer.

I want to thank the many readers of the previousfive books in the series who have gotten in touch with me. I appreciateall your comments. And I hope you're willing to give The Reveal a try. If you've read any of the other books in the series, you will know that when I write about sex, it is anything but erotic. In this book,it is particularly disturbing. But I think the topic is important.You've been warned.
