I regret that Kate Flora's Stalking Death has been on my TBR pile since 2006 but ever so glad that I picked it up yesterday. What a whomper of a book for so many reasons.

Flora's treatment of women throughout Stalking is superb. At first I was put off by the title, Stalking -- all too often a signal for a fearful, desperate woman who can't escape her destiny until she's rescued. Instead, Flora's use of the title is to expose ignorance and gender bias and provide a platform for women to react and

Not only did I read to 2 a.m., but I then couldn’t sleep, had to arise to write, process, and calm back down. There’s another in the series coming soon. I can hardly wait! 
My notes and gleaned wisdom: 
 “Neo Skulls” secret group of legacy students — leader a sadistic entitled monster, “lacking rules and guidance . . . finally tangled with someone more than his match” — grandfather paying for building on campus. Concerned parents — black female athlete being stalked,

This one is set on the campus of St. Matthew's, a private boarding school in central New Hampshire, where educational crisis consultant Thea is asked to rubber-stamp a letter to parents in the midst of stalking allegations by an athletic black student (age 16). She quickly realises that the school administration has not investigated the matter seriously and plans on scapegoating the accuser. Anyone who likes boarding school mysteries will like this one, tightly plotted, with a chilling and frenz ...more

Terror at St. Matthews

Who would have thought that a small boarding school could hide so much madness. From rapes by entitled young men to torture by a soul less maniac willing to chop up bodies while they are alive. Clueless, intimated, gutless or selfishly indifferent school personnel let the student body suffer. It takes Thea to put the puzzle pieces together.
Great sub plots with bizarre twists and turns keep action nonstop. Characters with their quirks, flaws, and unexpected attributes make

Elite school, a generous donations , and a grandson, thinks he is above the law, or any rules and regulation. Thea is brought in to find a girl being stalked, the school is more concern about losing money. As she continues her investigation, finding the horrors of what all has been going on. Good page turner, and a good series.

Very well written and with great characters, as always. Very smooth and entertaining to read, but the plot is a little too unbelievable.
I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.

Thea Kozak figures it all out and solves the problem. She is witty, tough, and intelligent. A pleasurable book to read!

Wonderful Read

Loved this. I feel like I read a Law and Order ripped from the headlines mashup of #metoo and #blwcklives matter.

Crisis Specialist Thea Kozak is a well-drawn character and the reader "sees" her immediately. Even though the story is told in first person, Thea is not a first-person camera; she is involved in the story emotionally as well as physically. When she's called in to defuse a stalking situation on the campus of a private high school academy, she meets up with subterfuge she didn't expect. Her own feelings toward the victim, who seems to also be victimized by the school administration, intensify Koza ...more

Kate Flora is a new author for me...unfortunately, I started with the seventh book in the her Thea Kozak mystery series - now I'm going back and starting at the beginning with 1994's "Chosen for Death". Thea is an interesting character - she, along with her partner Suzanne, are crisis counselors, working with private schools in New England; just when you think there isn't a new occupation for the amateur sleuth...When a 16 year old minority athlete at a private boarding school complains of stalk ...more

Chilling tale of nefarious goings-on at a posh boarding school in New Hampshire. The protagonist is an out-sourced PR type person who helps schools handle difficult situations.

This as more like a 3 3/4 for me. I truly like ongoing characters and was glad to read about Thea again. Not my favorite in the series, but still quite good.

She dreamed of being able to create the kind of compelling, enchanting worlds of the books she disappeared into every week, but growing up in the era when “help wanted” ads were still sex-segregated, she felt her calling was to go to law school and get the job they told her ...more
