"One of the best of a strong series"
Somehow Kate Jasper has meddled in eleven homicide
investigations. Murder has become such a way of life for
Kate, the police and friends dub her as the "Typhoid Mary
of Murder" and raise a cross when she is nearby (just
kidding). Her husband Wayne Caruso always worries when his
wife becomes a murder investigation participant.
So no one including Wayne is surprised when she comes
to pick him up at a sensitivity meeting sponsored by the
Heartline Men's Club and they witness a deliberate hit and
run killing of group member Steve Summers. The deceased
left behind a wife Laura, a member of the state assembly.
Surprisingly, Wayne wants Kate, leading his Men's Club
members, to hunt down the perpetrator. Another member is
killed and Kate barely saves the life of her husband. Now
the investigation is personal, but the suspects are
numerous while the clues are few.
A SENSITIVE KIND OF MURDER is the twelfth but final
Kate Jasper mystery though the author will start a new
series next year. This tale is one of the best of a strong
series as no one can positively identify the killer until
the final chapter. Ms. Girdner completes her delightful
Jasper novels in triumph, but hopefully this is one of
those cases of never say never as amateur sleuth fans will
want at least a baker's dozen.
