TATTOOED (Kate Lange)

TATTOOED by author Pamela Callow is a May 2012 release by Harlequin MIRA Books.

This was my first Kate Lange story but I was hooked from the first page. When the mummified body of a young girl is found and it is confirmed that it was of a girl vanished in 1990s, Detective Ethan Drake starts investigating and makes some shocking discoveries.

Kate Lange finds out that the body butcher blamed her for his incarnation and for saving her younger sister from being murdered by him. No

Hmmm.. I wanted to like this. I've read the first two in the Kate Lange series and really liked them. Kate is strong yet vulnerable. Dealing with a tough past (father who is a celebrity style criminal in their hometown and by the fact that Kate killed her younger sister in a car accident while trying to rescue her from drugs) while trying to make her career, and a life, for herself in Halifax. But her career as a lawyer has brought danger into her world more tha

The story was interesting. I learned a lot about tattoos. I liked how incidents from 17 years prior were wrapped up in events going on now. It did seem a wee bit too coincidental that everyone from the two sets of events were connected and knew each other. All in all, it worked, though. There was plenty of technical forensics stuff in the first half and a good bit of action in the second half. When I picked this one up, I didn't realize that it was the third book in the Kate Lange series, so may ...more

I always look forward to the next book in the Kate Lange series. Each one proves even better than the one before and TATTOOED was no exception. Clever and edgy, I was on the edge of my seat, flipping the pages madly to see what would happen next. Pamela Callow is one writer not to be missed. If you haven't read DAMAGED or INDEFENSIBLE, do yourself a favour and pick up the three pack to kick off your summer reading. If you have read them, rush out and pick up TATTOOED. You'll be glad you did!

A fast-paced suspense that kept me turning the pages. I would recommend this book for a great vacationing beach-read. I loved the message that we should be allowed to do what we want with our bodies, from covering every inch of our skin with tattoos to the more controversial issue of choosing doctor-assisted suicide for body-ravaging diseases like ALS. Having a little more Halifax scenery thrown in would have been nice...because I didn't get the feel of the location (other than biting bugs and b ...more

This is the third book in the Kate Lange Mystery series. As we rejoin Kate at her office in downtown Halifax, the author brings us up to date on events from the preceding book.

After Kate had successfully defended Randall Barrett on the charge of murdering his wife, they had both recognized that they had feelings for one another that extended beyond their professional lawyer/client relationship. But Randall, seeing his family in turmoil over the loss of their mother and the fear of their father'

If you enjoy a good murder mystery and you are a fan of CSI; then, "Tattooed" is the book for you. Pamela Callow expertly describes a very convincing and intriguing story line that will leave you questioning what is right and what is wrong.

You know, I have the absolute worse habit of reading books of a series out of order and once again I did it, I read this book which is the third in the series. I probably would've rated it higher had I actually read the first two books. I wasn't lost in the story., but I definitely lost some of the angst that Kate is feeling regarding the relationships she has with just about everybody in her life. This story picked up after she had been attacked twice before by people involved in oth

As someone with several tattoos, the title of this book caught my attention first, and then when I read the plot I thought this sounded really intriguing. I don’t normally go for the Mira-type line of Harlequin, and so this was a bit of change for me.

Because of some format issues (it was a PDF) it took me a little bit to get into it, since the lines weren’t evenly distributed. But once I caught on to the narrative, I was hooked. When the body in the bog is discovered, it brings to light a bunch
This is the third book in the Kate Lange series. If you haven’t read her first two, “Damaged,” and “Indefensible,” I highly recommend you do.

Pamela Callow is an author who knows how to deliver a suspenseful, thrilling, and fast-paced story and it shows through her writing. She definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. This is a brilliant series that all mystery and suspense-loving readers should gobble up. It’s evident that I’m a huge fan of this Canadian author, and if you need more proof

Synopsis: Kate Lange is brought in on a case with ringings from her past. Kenzie Sloane, a well recognized tattoo artist, is arrested for the murder of a young woman discarded in the bogs of Halifax. What did Kenzie, if anything, have to do with it and does it have anything to do with Kate's sister's death?

My opinion: Good Lord, Ms. Callow strikes again! Although this isn't my favorite of the series, it is still a strong contender. When I saw this on Netgalley, I hit request and crossed my finge

I did it again!

First, the cover is really enticing. It caught my eyes when I was browsing on the thriller shelf of my favorite bookstore. As a result, the impulse-buying kicked in and I bought this not really knowing it was part of a goddamn series!!! Okay, it was entirely my fault, I know that. So I still read. Hoping that this would be as readable as Jeffrey Deaver's Roadside Crosses which I acquired under similar circumstances like this one. But as they said, you can't be lucky twice in a row

The story starts off with John McNally being released from Prison. He's been in prison for 17 years for Manslaughter and upon his release his mind wanders to the love of his life, Kenzie Sloane as well as his hate for Kate Lange. He plans to take Kenzie back as his own whether she is with someone new or not and to get revenge on Kate for ruining his plan years ago. Back when Kenzie and McNally were teens they played a game with an old revolver and had plans to kill Kate's sister Imogen until Kat ...more

Favorite Lines: "The love and the hate had never stopped, never changed, never gone away. For over half his life he had loved Kenzie Sloane. And for over half his life he had hated her for what she had done to him. But he had a plan. A plan that would bring them full circle." (p. 10, e-galley)

Cover art: I like the cover, but not for this book. The tattooist (Kenzie) is covered in tattoos, but there is one particular tattoo that is mentioned on the neck. It is not tribal art. It is a raven. (Even

This is the third book in Callow’s series featuring lawyer, Kate Lange. Readers first met her in the titles: Damaged and Indefensible; but if you have not read these previous novels, this will perhaps hinder you a bit even though the story is amazingly suspenseful and will definitely hold your interest until the very last page.

On the outskirts of Halifax, Nova Scotia, a murder victim is discovered in a bog. Extremely difficult to come up with an actual identity for the corpse, the law turns to o

The first thing I have to say is that having read the book, I actually don’t love the cover as much as I thought I did. First of all, Kenzie has way more tattoos than that—and secondly, if you’re going to feature a neck tattoo, it really should be a raven. Or at least a peony.

But I digress.

I love Pamela Callow. I love Kate Lange. And I love secondary characters like reformed alcoholic, criminal lawyer Eddie Bent and Detective Ethan Drake. So what’s not to love about Tattooed? Other than the cove

I enjoyed Tattooed. I will be honest here, the first two books in the series were much better. They were action packed. In Tattooed, all the action took place at the end. A very good climatic ending. But, I love action. So, unlike the other two books, at times Tattooed seem to drag.

Now, on to my favorite part of all Pamela Callow's novels, THE CHARACTERS. I think Callow is a master of character development. All my favorites were there. If you're looking for Randall Barrett, well he was a telepho

First thought when finished: Very interesting thriller even if the ending was a bit of a mess to me!

What I Loved: This was the first book in this series that I have read and I didn't feel lost at all. I felt an immediate connection to Kate. I loved that she was smart, tough, and yet very vulnerable. I love that in Tattooed she was caught in a place of having to make a choice of getting past the past and yet constantly

This is the third book in the Kate Lange series and one of the many things I'm learning about this series is that I don't ever to become Kate Lange.

Sure, she's got a great dog (or dogs, I should say). She's got a powerful career as a lawyer. She's got several men in her life (though I really was not rooting for Randall this time around.) But, Kate Lange's biggest problem is that the stalkers and serial killers of Halifax, Nova Scotia all seem intent on making sure Kate Lange dies and that means

I really enjoy this new series following the character of Kate Lange. I did, however, find this third book the weakest of them all. Although I detest romance in my books because they are usually so ridiculous, boy meets girl, five pages later boy protests his undying love, that sort of thing, I rather enjoyed the romance in this book because it was so subtle. I felt that this book had the relationship so subtle, it was almost non existent. Maybe that was the authors intent. I guess that remains ...more

While it can be said that one of my favorite reading genres is mystery suspense thrillers this one was not exactly what I expected and it is hard to pinpoint exactly why. Suffice to say it kept my attention and had some good scenes that played well to the characters cast by the author, also unfortunately it did not cohesively gell for me at the end so that was kind of a letdown. Some threads in the story were deftly tied up and others were never explored or left open ended and that is not what I ...more

This was the first of Pamela Callow's books that I have read, and I enjoyed it. Though I hadn't read the previous Kate Lang novels, I thought this one stood on its own well enough, and gave just enough back story that I was able to know Kate's history well enough to understand all the connections between the characters.
I felt there was just enough to keep me wanting to read on to find out what happened next to each person, though a bit more suspense would have been nice. Without reading the pre

Good story, great development of characters, but... perhaps the title should be Keeping Kate Safe #3. I realize that the threat of bodily harm is a way to move the story forward, but too often, knife wounds, concussions and head injuries (with stitches needed in the hairline, not their face) turn the story into The Perils of Pauline and not in a good way.

Just once I want to see the story moved without an injury to the heroine. There must be a way because the most of the male protagonists mange

I started this thinking it was set in Halifax N England which made the references to sneakers disconcerting. It's actually Halifax-on-the-tundra.
The story's ok & engaging enough but she keeps repeating things & the constant references to something called Mardi Gras taking place at Halloween rather than just before Lent are really annoying - but apparently that is what they called it.
All the women are beautiful; all the men appear to be ruggedly handsome; the characters drink litres of co
This is what I would call a cozy mystery. My problem is that I liked Kenzie (the villain) much better than Kate. Maybe if I had read the books before this I would have liked Kate better.
