Product Description

From Library Journal

The sequel to Deadly Errand ( LJ 7/92) again features private-eye nurse Kate Kinsella in a traditional British mystery. While on duty at Longborough General Hospital, Kinsella meets a paranoid patient (also a nurse) who fears a murderous pursuer.

From Kirkus Reviews

Just because suicidal district nurse Vanessa Wootten is paranoid (and manic-depressive too), does that mean that nobody's out to get her? She insists to nurse/detective Kate Kinsella (Deadly Errand, 1992) that someone's following her and making threatening calls; but no one who knows Vanessa's medical history (two psychiatric hospitalizations before her present suicide attempt) believes her, and even Kate has trouble swallowing some of her wilder accusations--that she was raped by her ex-lover, constable Paul Oakby, and terrorized by her estranged sister Sheila's onetime fianc‚ Colin Tiffield. In the meantime, murder (beginning with a harmless elderly patient of hers) has been following Vanessa almost as closely as unsuitable men. Whether or not she's right about being persecuted, somebody's sure telling a pack of lies. Overloaded with people and incidents (some of them fascinating, like Kate's all-night vigil with a suicidal young doctor) that obscure the strong central situation here. But Green's inventive powers are almost as prodigious as Vanessa's. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.

HASH(0x9ffa72ac) out of 5 stars Smart and original Nov. 7 2001
By frumiousb - Published on
Format: Paperback
In Vanessa Wooten, Christine Green has created an annoying and unreliable victim for Kate Kinsella to protect. She claims she's being stalked, but she's apparently been saying this for years. She's paranoid and more than a little strange. Right up until the end of this strange little book, we don't have any better feeling than Kinsella does whether the threat is anywhere except in Vanessa's head.
The book does get tangled up in its own feet at a certain point by introducing too many characters and too much information. Still, for me, it gives a lot of hope for the writer/series.
HASH(0x9ffa7300) out of 5 stars The first Kate Kinsella mystery that I really loved April 21 2009
By Neal Reynolds - Published on
Format: Paperback
I think it's the screwball character of Vanessa Wooten that really made this movie for me. The hopelessly paranoid (or is she?) client makes a great contrast for the rather inept detective, and there is honest suspense towards the end as to the fate of poor Vanessa.BTW, one reviewer reviewed the wrong haunted houses in this book. Sorry about that.

HASH(0x9ffa7738) out of 5 stars If you like Kinsey Milhone, you'll probably like Kate Kinsella June 28 2005
By M. C. Crammer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Kate strikes me as a British version of Grafton's Kinsey Milhone -- she's kind of on her own and her good buddy is her landlord -- too old to be a romantic interest but someone who looks out for her to the extent she'll tolerate being looked after.

This is one of the earlier books in the series. Kate decides to go on holiday (take a vacation) and ends up in Wales, in a dreadful trailer (caravan). She runs into a friend from school, whom she barely recognizes. The friend is getting married and living in her fiance's house on a cliff in Cornwall (remember Rebecca?) The fiance's wife had committed suicide over the edge of the cliff, taking their two children, and Kate's friend is convinced the place is haunted. Kate ends up going to visit to investigate -- her concerns have to do with the fiance, not ghosts.

This is a real page-turner -- quick pace, lots of interesting characters, and a romantic location in an old house by the ocean.

HASH(0x9ffa7af8) out of 5 stars A Kate Kinsella Mystery April 28 2001
By J. Graham - Published on
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed following the sleuth Kate Kinsella as she roamed the town pciking up clues. It was a very light yet intriguing read and reminded me of the TV show 'Murder She Wrote'.
