Summary

Tough and demanding LAPD Detective Kate Delafield is the leader of the investigation into a high-rise office building murder. The case is intriguing but routine - until Kate interviews the only witness, Ellen O'Neil.

When Ellen O'Neil took her new job over the objections of her lover, she wasn't expecting to become embroiled in murder. The curiosity that Kate Delafield rouses is equally unexpected. But it is never far from Ellen's mind that she is merely a name on an interview sheet to the tight-lipped detective.

Kate's thin trail of clues are enough to convince her that she is looking for an amateur, and amateurs are notoriously unpredictable and dangerous. She finds her path increasingly intersecting with that of Ellen O'Neil, who is proving unpredictable and dangerous in a far more personal way.

What year?

I had to look up what year this book was written, 1984. The prejudice fits right with the time. Lots of hate towards black people, fat people and other non white people. I don't understand how these books were so popular. No I won't be reading anymore.
The narrator was good.

I couldn't get a refund

I wanted a refund. Spent more time on describing the furniture and the building and people clothes than the story. Too much discrimination and racism. I almost threw up

This is not as interesting as some... I did like
listening to each person she interviewed-
very police procedural....
