I don't normally go for detective stories, but Val McDiarmid's Blue Genes has me
hooked. Kate Brannigann is one cool PI. And her lines are brilliant.

The plot: Attempts to catch a group of cowboys frauding people out of money
for gravestones goes hidiously wrong. Then she ends up with a flyposter case
that means involvement with the local gangsters. And then her partner tells her
he's leaving for Austrailia, and is selling his half of the business. Not a good day.
It gets worse when her best friend Alexis asks her to investigate a rather
bizarre murder... The IVF doctor that allowed her and her partner to have a
child is dead... but why the secret identity? What WAS really going on? And
who would murder her? All of this tangles into a dangerous web of intruige and
mystery for Kate... A book worth reading, folks :@)


We the willing. Led by the unknowing. Are doing the impossible. For the Ungrateful. We
do so much with so little. We now can do almost anything with nothing.
