it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery
Read from May 12 to June 02, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

Love the main character. Love the setting. Love that I could not put it down until I had reached the end.

Too often female protagonists are spilling angst over every page. They're insecure about their romantic relationship or lack thereof. They constantly question their own abilities. They analyze every look and comment from their male colleagues and assume the worst, complete with running internal dialogue and mental flagellation. Not Kate Shugak. She has self doubts, she's human, but these doubts do not form a constant background noise that detracts from the story.

So what I mostly love about A Cold Day for Murder is being able to read a mystery with a female protagonist that focuses on the story and not the internal agonies of the protagonist. I could immerse myself in the story and not be constantly irritated by the main character. And Dana Stabenow has created a story that is worth the immersion.
