With Child (Kate Martinelli Series #3) by Laurie R. King


In Laurie R. King's With Child, adrift in mist-shrouded San Francisco mornings and alcohol-fogged nights, homicide detective Kate Martinelli can't escape the void left by her departed lover, who has gone off to rethink their relationship. But when twelve-year-old Jules Cameron comes to Kate for a professional consultation, Kate's not sure she's that desperate for distraction.

Jules is worried about her friend Dio, a homeless boy she met in a park. Dio has disappeared without a word of farewell, and Jules wants Kate to find him. Reluctant as she is, Kate can't say no—and soon she finds herself forming a friendship with the bright, quirky girl. But the search for Dio will prove to be much more than both bargained for—and it's only the beginning.

When Jules disappears while taking a trip with Kate, a desperate search begins—and Kate knows all too well the odds of finding the child alive.

IDYLL More than 1 year ago
The first in this series won my heart by telling a first rate detective story whose main character is detective first, in a relationship second, and lesbian after those. King treats this non-traditional relationship with the same non-purient interest she brought to the Russell/Holmes relationship, a rare and refreshing approach. Wide-ranging in her subjects and settings, King creates enjoyable plots told with a good ear for language and a rich vocabulary. The stress on the Kate/Lee relationship caused by Lee's disability following a shooting is believable, its results natural, its resolution appropriate. A thoroughly good read
