Comments Vollrausch : Kate Delafields achter Fall

  • Eli

    All right, Katherine Forrest, ya got me. You wrote a book I spent 7/8 of wanting to throw the protagonist out the window and then pulled the rug out from under me. For most of the book, I was so angry at this character: the Kate Delafield who justified and denied her alcoholism, blamed everyone and everything but herself for her relationship problems, sleepwalked through her investigation, and showed a startling lack of understanding and empathy toward her trans nephew, wasn't the Kate Delafield [...]

    Hancock Park: A Kate Delafield Mystery, by Catherine V. Forrest, a-minus, borrowed from the National Library Services for the Blind.This is one of the later Kate Delafield novels. She and her newer more enlightened police partner, are called to the scene of a murder in a house in Hancock Park, a rich area of Los Angeles. The house is super-clean, although the victim, Victoria Talbot, is not known for housekeeping. Victoria has been shot, and the person who most clearly stood out as a suspect was [...]

    I still love Kate, though now I've read and *own* all 8 of her books. I think the problem with these books is that they are too short! And the author refers to events that happened to Kate in the past, but then they are not described in any of the previous books, which I find confusing. In this book she moves on to the trans issue, in a really positive and inclusive way. Disappointingly, there was no romance in this book, but Aimee and Kate go through some issues - very realistic, I guess, but s [...]


  • Alma

    What makes reading the book rewarding for me is the controlled, spare, concise prose that in its stark simplicity conveys the dynamics between two people -specifically, between two women - in a long-term relationship with depth and feeling. Unfortunately Ms. Forrest's calibre of writing is painfully absent from the majority of amateurish works flooding the market. Authors I would recommend as exceptional, especially if you're interested chiefly in reading work written about women by women includ [...]

    I read this right after #2, "Murder at the Nightwood Bar," and was struck by how Delafield's world has changed considerably between 1987 and 2005. She's a senior police detective, struggling with whether to be open with her sexual orientation at work, drinking too much, and having conflicts with her much-younger partner about same. Also, there's a murder case to be considered -- told in flashbacks from the courtroom. The case is pretty gruesome (though not as horrible as "Nightwood"). There's an [...]

    I was sorry not to like this book more as I like this author. The problem is, it is a totally straightforward procedural--reading it is like watching paint dry. There's a tiny little twist at the end but overall there is not enough to the plot to sustain interest.


  • Naomi

    It was a quick read. A mystery novel with a hint of lesbianism (Kate the detective is gay). It was a good book.your normal mystery fiction novel. I was not able to figure out who it was until the end!


  • Lynn

    I really enjoyed this book. Of course you had the murder, investigation and trial but it was more. It was about family and how they can sometimes become fractured. Can they be fixed? Do they want to be fixed? Should they be fixed?


  • Alicia

    I enjoyed it, well written, interesting characters and story. Better than most lesbian fiction.


  • Josy

    Excellent!A "good read" and I learned a lot about myself.


  • Megan

    See the comments in the Lesbian Mystery Reading Group, found here: Lesbian Mysteries.


  • Sue Frampton

    KVF does it again with a Delafield mystery. A great read and at a pace that keeps your turning the pages from begining go end.


  • Jan

    Classic Katherine V Forrest, filled with "the personal is the political" themes, hard choices & real life dilemmas that defy simple answers.


  • Penny

    A slightly lesbian Law & Order episode good of its kind, too.
