Freelance journalist Lindsay Gordon is strapped for cash - otherwise she would never have agreed to cove a fundraising gala at Derbyshire House Girls' School. But when the star attraction was found garrotted with her own cello string, Lindsay finds herself investigating a vicious murder.

I picked this book up somehow through bookcrossing - possibly at the Convention - but it turns out I have read it before...

What an interesting book. My attention was first caught when Lindsay describes herself as "cyncal socialist lesbian feminist journalist". I thought here goes!

The book follows the formula detective novel form, and is easy reading, but the interesting twist in this book is the love interest is another woman Cordelia. My initial thought is why? Looked at the publisher "The Womens Press". There you go, a twist on the normal heterosexual distraction. I kept thinking what does this add to the novel... nothing but I guess in most cases that is true of the the mainstream detective novel.

I kept reading not because it was a good book but to see if the murderer was a man... [SPOILER} I was not disapppointed.

Would recommend it just to see the detective genre from a different angle.

kalasue - grooble was giving away some of her books at the Convention that she had not had time to register...this was one of them. (I can tell coz she has written 'A gift from groobs' on the first page...like she did on one book I got from her too. :)

This book is now a part of the OBCZ at work. :)

This book is not physically still at this OBCZ. I am assuming it has been taken and not journalled. Hope it gets journalled somewhere down the road...
