First, the reader...she does male voices well, but makes all the women sound perky, lightweight, trite. Just awful.
The story has a lot of cut-and-paste descriptions from previous books. Can authors really get away with this? No current-time authenticity. It's really too bad, because there's a great cast of characters here. One more "Bailey glowered" and I'll scream.
Barbara can't find her way with this case, and neither can I. A story about endless frustration and dead ends...well, I think it describes how the author felt writing this.
Then there's the faux romance. Tacky and tiring, and doesn't belong to a character who began with such an edge.
I have downloaded all the Barbara Holloway novels and enjoyed the twists and turns.
Kate Wilhelm, I hope you find your way again...you have avid fans.
