I have liked this author's past mysteries but this one totally turned me off. Her detective, Micky Knight, has become thoroughly obnoxious. Maybe she always was and I didn't notice? Maybe she has not aged well? Anyway, characters like her remind me that it is possible for lesbians to be just as misogynistic and sexist as men. As to the mystery itself...very derivative. As if she is trying to rewrite "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" only without the atmosphere and charm. I did not make it to the bitter end so perhaps I shouldn't review this but I read Enough and skimmed to the end. ( )

These chains of events ?and an act of nature ?will tear Micky's life apart in ways that may never be put back together.… (more)
