Bestselling author Laurie R. King has won both critical and popular acclaim for her mysteries featuring San Francisco detective Kate Martinelli. Looking forward to routine police work after her last terrifying case, Kate finds herself on the trail of vigilantes targeting abusive men in the San Francisco area. Kate has just returned to active duty after being injured on the job. Her girlfriend, Lee, has moved back into their home, and their relationship is on the mend. But the calm, predictable life Kate’s looking forward to doesn’t materialize. The Ladies of Perpetual Disgruntlement is practicing a modern equivalent of tarring and feathering violent men who seem to have escaped justice. The police department finds their antics humorous until men that fit their profile start turning up dead. As Kate tries to stop the killing, her investigation leads her too close to home for comfort. A winner of the Edgar Award, Laurie R. King fills her mysteries with vivid characters and more twists and turns than a rollercoaster. Narrator Alyssa Bresnahan finds the perfect voice for the tough-as-nails detective. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I really liked the first 3 books in this series...but this isn't the strongest one. Love the SF locale, and the personality/private life of the detective. Good writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Stacielynn | 2/8/2014

    " Another intelligent and well-written mystery featuring detective Kate Martinelli. This one has an intriguing plot that somehow combines such diverse topics as vigilante feminists and Indian bride burning. The author gave some short shrift to the Indian culture -- was disappointed that she resorted to easy stereotypes, but it wasn't badly done enough to be totally offensive, just noticeable. "

    " Solid entry in the Kate Martinelli series. The central mystery is less intensely personal for Kate than in the previous book, and the book overally was not quite as emotionally gripping. I had some issues with the book's depictions of the Mehtas; it reminded me far too much of those hoary old colonialist narratives of the white world rescuing women of color from their own menfolk. (Sorry, folks. Race/ethnicity/culture are a lot more complicated than that.) I am still looking forward to book 5 in the series, but am correspondingly more worried about reading the Mary Russell with Indian themes. I suspect that will be very problematic! "
