It seems like Forrest likes the closed room mysteries. Or at least mysteries that are close to the closed room mystery, where you only have so many suspects and you know that one of them did it.

This one took place in Washington D.C. Where Kate was visiting for seminars with the FBI as well as a reunion with those she served with in Vietnam. Her Girlfriend/Partner is there with her as well, and although we don't get to learn about the girlfriend much in this book, we learn oh so much about Kate's past. Oh, and they solve a murder from the inside instead of the outside.

The book was interesting in a few ways. There seemed to be much more dialogue than previous books in the series. There also seemed to be oh so many more important secondary characters. And it was also interesting to see the Kate character outside of her natural habitat, her comfort zone. Now, if one of the next three books gives me more back ground on Kate's girlfriend I'd be a happy clam.

As an aside, it was also interesting how Kate's new partner was introduced in such an oblique way. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0425176754, Mass Market Paperback)

Long before high-profile lesbian cops such as Laurie R. King's Kate Martinelli were fighting for our attention, a former Marine turned Los Angeles police detective named Kate Delafield was doing some quietly effective ground-breaking of her own under the expert guidance of Katherine V. Forrest. In Liberty Square, Delafield is in Washington, D.C., for the 25th anniversary reunion of her old Vietnam outfit. When all hell breaks loose, it's Kate the cop who has to sort it out. Forrest's writing is spare and her characters come to life quickly. Other Delafield books in paperback include Amateur City, The Beverly Malibu, Murder at the Nightwood Bar, and Murder by Tradition.
