About this title


The third Kate Carpenter mystery It's strange how something as simple as a knock on the door can change your life completely and not necessarily for the better. Kate Carpenter has had a busy year, what with moving in with her boyfriend, Cam, dealing with visits from ex-boyfriends not to mention job stress, as she keeps finding dead bodies all over the theatre she manages. And then comes the knock on her door and a visit from Cam's cousin, just escaped from an abusive marriage with nowhere else to turn. As Kate and Cam get nowhere trying to navigate Carrie through the frustrating bureaucracy of lawyers and police, they finally decide to take matters into their own hands. Tragedy strikes as a gun turns up and a policeman goes down and, although the police arrest someone, Kate just doesn't think things add up and is determined to get to the truth. Although her motives are entirely altruistic, Kate finds herself being hassled by the police and threatened by the most dangerous creature of all: a mother. Something that Kate finds even more difficult to deal with as she struggles with a personal tragedy of her own.

From Booklist:

Canadian theater manager Kate Carpenter is back in another cracking good mystery. She has finally allowed her boyfriend, Cam, to move in with her--a huge step given Kate's aversion to anything resembling commitment. What she hasn't bargained for is Cam's cousin, Carrie, showing up, too, after leaving her abusive husband. Kate is willing to let Carrie bed down on the sofa, but her presence definitely makes the couple's adjustment to a new lifestyle more difficult. Then Carrie goes back home to pick up a few belongings, a gun accidentally goes off, and she is accused of attempted murder. To Kate, things don't quite add up. She is pretty sure Carrie is innocent. But how to prove it? And if Carrie isn't the shooter, who is? Despite strong advice from both Cam and the police to stay out of the case, the always-stubborn Kate sets out to discover the truth. A meaty plot, wry humor, deft writing, and an engaging heroine make this a worthy successor to Evening the Score and House Report (both 2004). Emily Melton
