Product Description

From Library Journal

Two years after her lover left without warning, Blue McCarron has retreated to an abandoned motel in the desert near San Diego. She's a social psychologist who is decidedly antisocial; her only companion is a Doberman named Bront?. When the frozen body of a street hustler is discovered in a meat locker and an old woman, Muffin Crandall, confesses to his murder, Blue is asked to investigate. Muffin pretends to be crazy, but Blue doesn't buy it and sets out to find the real killer. Along the way, she befriends a prison psychiatrist and ex-con. Together they stumble onto a child prostitution ring and a secret organization determined to save the young prostitutesAat any cost. Blue has to confront demons from her past, including her twin brother, who is in prison, and her lingering passion for her missing lover. Blue is sassy, tough, scared, vulnerable, and funnyAa great new character from Padgett, known for her Bo Bradley series (The Dollmaker's Daughters, LJ 1/97).

From Booklist

Blue McCarron has a Ph.D. in social psychology. She teaches and writes while living reclusively in an abandoned motel in the middle of the California desert with her Doberman, Bronte. A minister's kid, she has an imprisoned felon for a twin and a broken heart from grieving over her lost lover, Misha. When a body is found trussed up in a public freezer and widow Muffin Crandall, 61, claims she killed an intruder in self-defense and then did some dumb things, including freezing the corpse for five years, Muffin's brother Dan hires Blue to free his much older sister by analyzing her. It is apparent to Blue and forensic psychiatrist Rox that Muffin's story is a hoax. But who is Muffin protecting? Who wants her dead? And, maybe more important, will Blue ever resolve her love for Misha and love again? Complete with commentary by a Rastafarian Greek chorus in the form of ex-felon BB the Punk, the witty, suspenseful lesbian-detective thriller is hard to resist. Whitney Scott

Oh my goddess...Blue McCarron, Ph.D. is one hot character. A recluse out in her desert hotel, Blue and her wonder dog Bronte (loved Bronte). Blue has many skeletons in her closet...Misha, the woman she loved who one day disappeared. Her aunt, Carty, is acting mysteriously and there's the necklace Blue's seen before. The mending of her relationship with her twin brother David, who in prison, but is getting married. And there's Muffin Crandall's friends who are being picked off one at a time by someone unknown. Blue and Bronte survive many encounters in the desert with some unsavory characters. Her new friends BB and Rox are better friends than she knew. Beautifully written with character and environmental development.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rollicking Good Read Dec 17 2001
Format:Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed Blue, filled with suspense and humor. The characters were diverse and interesting, each filling his/her role superbly. The complicated plot with its many twists and turns kept me guessing until the very end. Padgett is quite the wordsmith and writes with intelligence and passion. Move over, Sue Grafton, Abigail Padgett is here!
