Although a self-assured lesbian, London journalist Lindsay Gordon vacillates between supposed happiness with partner Cordelia and intermittent bliss with former lover Deborah. At the Fordham air base, while covering a violent clash between inhabitants of the women's peace camp and members of a local opposition group, Lindsay finds that police have charged Deborah with assault. When someone murders the alleged "victim," Deborah becomes the prime suspect. Consequently, the women ask Lindsay to investigate. McDermid (Crack Down, LJ 11/1/94) creates believable characters, full-bodied prose, and the usual lovelife complications. A good read.

Lesbian reporter Lindsay Gordon goes to cover the long protest of a cruise missile base by a British women's peace encampment and finds there an attractive ex-lover who is accused of murder, not to mention routine assaults and an official cover-up. Although the book's plot is sometimes contrived and the pacing is uneven, Gordon is a gutsy heroine committed to action, righting wrongs, and solving mysteries who sometimes takes large helpings of abuse and plays both sides of the allegiance fence in order to succeed. As she battles to solve the problems of a monogamous relationship against a background of institutionalized secrecy, lies, and brutality, the author gives readers a strong sense of contemporary England, too.
