Overview

Homicide detective Janet Barlow has problems. Her parents disapprove of her career choice, her male colleagues are almost all hostile, and her new partner is the biggest jerk in the Cambridge (MA) Police Department. To make matters worse, she can’t remember the last time she had sex. But Janet’s problems are just beginning. When young women start showing up naked with their necks snapped, she knows she’s not looking at a routine killer. And when the FBI is called in on the case, she must add an arrogant federal agent to her list of headaches. Now if she could only get her mother to stop leaving those annoying messages on her answering machine.

THE CHAMELEON shifts back and forth between Janet’s point of view and those of the serial killer and his victims. It is a compelling mixture of sex, violence, humor, and suspense.

I'm an avid mystery reader, and this was terrific. It was a great escape, well written, and full of surprises. The sexual tension and impending doom were tempered with relevant sub-plots about co-workers and fun family dynamics. The pacing is just what I love in a mystery--a mix of nervous anticipation, characters I care about, and just enough humor. Especially clever are chapter endings that make it a real page-turner. It was hard to put this one down. Write more soon!! (I'm a Kate Atkinson fan, and this didn't disappoint.)
