Katwalk (Kat Colorado Mysteries) (Bookring)
11 journalers for this copy...
It's actually kind of an old friend of mine... The main character of this book is the one and only KATCOLORADO ;-) and Katwalk is her first case. I already have the book in my bookshelf (my real one) but of course I couldn't resist. I will release it for sure I just don't know how yet...
I made up my mind, I will send it off as a bookring first and then we will see, take it to the meetup maybe...
Kat follows Sam Collins to the city of glitter and glimmer into a rat's nest of sleazy real estate deals, heavy hitting mobsters and contract killings. She doesn't back off, even when her searchings put her own live at danger.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Der "Bookring" (wann ist ein Ring ein Ring ;-) startet heute. Ich hoffe, Catbook mag das Buch und wer weiss, vielleicht finden sich danach noch andere, die es auch gerne lesen würden...
11.04.05 edit: Nun hat es doch etwas länger gedauert, weil mir noch ein paar andere Bücher einfach so dazwischengehüpft sind und weil sich zuerst niemand anderes mehr angemeldet hatte...
Nun denn, am Wochenende habe ich es endlich gelesen und sobald ich sanne2´s Adresse habe, kann es weiterreisen.
This P.I. is a very sympathetic person, curious like a cat, courageous where necessary, but also able to admit fear and physical weakness. Of course a privat investigator can´t always be and act rational, so she sometimes runs into dangerous situations ...
Luckily I have the following next two books of the series here, unluckily in german, but I think they will be my next read ( after another one or two rings to be done first ).
Die Privatdetektivin Cat Colorado ist mir sehr sympathisch, sie erinnert mich ein wenig an Vic Warshavski (die Krimiautorin ist mir leider entfallen), sie schert sich auch um keine Konventionen und fällt - wie die Katzen - auch mit den Füßen zuerst wieder auf die Erde, will heißen: wenn ihr auch noch so viel passiert, sie kommt immer mit dem Leben davon...
Jetzt darf als nächstes coco7 lesen!
Kat reminds me very strongly of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone, who is also a Californian P.I., curious, daring, not very lucky with men. Kat is even more likeable, because she likes good food, gardening and getting up late :-)
I liked Charity's column, too.
I really like P.I. Kat Colorado. She reminds me a bit of Marcia Mullers Sharon McCone books.
I definitely try to find more ;o)
Edit 20.09.: What a sassy character! I enjoyed this book very much and that is due in large part to this incomparable female PI. Thanks KatColorado, both of you ;-)
I like Kat Colorado, her character is just great. She's so human and i just had to like her. Even if the story sometimes isn't worth so much, Kat makes it all up and this definitely won't be the last book of these series I've read!
thanks for this ring
I'll give it to wildspitz at our next meet-up
Thank you for the ring!
The book describes a lot of features of every day American life I had nearly forgotten. I was reminded a lot of the time I spent as an exchange student in California.
I guess I will return it to KatColorado during the December Meetup in Zürich.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
I will return the book to KatColorado at today's Bookcrossing-Meetup in Zurich.
The PI KatColorado was a great character, no nonsense, liked her food, drink & men - I approve! Favourite quote?
"I can run 5 miles, swim two moves, move pool tables my myself, and leap short, squat buildings in a single bound. I can talk tough, drink shots of Wild Turkey, and eat very hot Mexican food."
My kind of girl :-)
This Kat will be making her way home to the other Kat very soon - maybe next Thursday. And in case I forget, the fictional Kat wishes the real Kat a very Happy Birthday for next Monday (Dec 12th!)
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
I'll give it back to Kat at the meetup
Looking forward to the story already!
I will return this book to BC-KatColorado today at the Easter meet-up. Thanks for sharing! :-)
I am so glad to be reunited with the book that I will take it on my holidays to Turkey....
