Inhaltsangabe:

Wisecracking, chocolate-addicted Lauren Laurano is at the height of her investigative prowess in this fifth novel in mystery's most popular lesbian detective seriesLauren can never seem to leave her work behind. She and her lover, Kip, are taking time off to help friends renovate their new house in a sleepy Long Island resort town. It's supposed to be a vacation - they are still recovering from that day when Kip walked in on Lauren and another woman, and this trip is intended to help patch things up. But private life gets pushed to the back burner when Lauren hears of a local "suicide" that her detective instincts tell her is more likely a murder.Despite Kip's requests that she leave the case alone and focus on their relationship, Lauren can't say no when the victim's cousin asks her to find out the truth. Small towns always have their secrets, but this case is downright bizarre. Every directions she turns, Lauren finds something suspicious: cops who don't see the most obvious criminal patterns, local politicians with secret agendas, public battles that barely mask long-standing personal vendettas. Soon Lauren finds herself in the middle of local battle between blue-blood homeowners an developers eager to spoil their pristine community with fast-food chains. Could the victim have paid for his anti-development activism with his life? Or is that simply what the killer wants people to think? The more Lauren learns about the apparently sleepy town, the more puzzling the case becomes.With her relationship stretched to the breaking point, a new partnership just beginning (professional, of course), and a case that just won't come together, Lauren is feeling off-kilter and offher turf. When the killer strikes again, she is forced to throw out the rule book and navigate by instinct, hoping she won't end up in the murderer's sights herself. Full of twists, powerful emotion, and the inherent humor of New Yorkers outside their familiar territory, this is Sandra Scoppettone at her very best.

Review:

Fans of the lesbian detective Lauren Laurano and her lover Kip will be thrilled to learn of the fifth book in Scoppettone's much-loved series. Here are the familiar wisecracks and the hard-edged New York humor, but in a new setting, a Long Island resort town where two of Lauren and Kip's close friends have just moved. Their trip to North Fork is supposed to be a healing, romantic vacation--Lauren has even forsworn e-mail and the Internet in an attempt to rekindle the fire with Kip--but they haven't even ordered their first breakfast at the local diner when a stranger bursts in, announcing that a body has been found hanged in the woods. The dead man's cousin insists it can't be suicide. Over Kip's objections, Lauren plunges into the case, making enemies of almost every town official. Or is almost every town official trying to cover something up? The investigation unfolds against the backdrop of Kip's disappointment in her lover and Lauren's fears that their relationship can never recover the trust and passion it once had. --Regina Marler
