Overview

The Color of Fear #7 (Kelly O'Connell Mysteries) by Judy Alter

The Color of Fear marks Judy Alter’s return to mystery fiction and the Kelly O’Connell series after an absence of more than a year. This time, the indomitable Keisha narrates the short tale wherein Kelly and her family live under the threat of infant Gracie’s kidnapping. The story serves as a reprise of many of the previous novels in the series, as Keisha, in her search for the kidnapper, recalls Kelly’s earlier adventures. And the fear for Gracie colors the overall story,

Keisha remains outspoken and independent as she balances her need to protect Kelly and her family with her love for new husband, José Thornberry. Some but not all of Kelly’s friends and foes from previous stories appear here, along with such new characters as Clyde, the guard dog, and Cowboy, the homeless guy with a soft heart.

For anyone who hasn't read all the preceding books in this series or for those who haven't read any of them, this nifty little novella (or short story depending on your definition) can fill some of the gaps. Besides the current adventure, Keisha also shares tidbits about past exploits so we're pretty much up to date...although, of course, reading the full length novels will offer much more. Here, we get tiny teasers. Keisha is the standout character in this particular story, seemingly the only one except Mike, Kelly's police captain husband, who keeps a level head in the current crisis. Threats are being made against a little baby and everyone has different ideas about who could be making these threats and why but it's Keisha who does the most to avoid panic. Her sixth sense comes into play and her love for all these people---well, not so much for Miss Cynthia---sees her through to the end. That end isn't entirely satisfactory because it's rushed and a bit out of nowhere but that's often the case with short stories and novellas, just not enough time to flesh it out properly. This is a story that will introduce or re-introduce readers to Kelly and those in her circle and I hope to see more of these folks soon.
