Kat Scratch Fever book. Karen Kijewski's latest book about the former Sacramento, California, bartender turned tough, compassionate private eye is built from these same materials-a mysterious death logically probed and eventually solved, and an attitude toward life, love, and murder that manages to be acerbic, sensible, and totally sympathetic.

Always looking for books based in Sacramento, written by local Sacramento authors.

Good read.

KAT SCRATCH FEVER has a plot that is interesting and intricate, but there are so many characters who have very little to make them memorable that I got confused several times and had to go back and look them up to refresh my memory as to just who they were. That's a boring job - thumbing through many, many pages already read trying to find a certain name. I swear I wanted to like this book. I did like Kat, but the book, itself, lacked something for me.

Loved the book
Sorryyy
I have a friend that runs a book store. She handed me this book, told me to read it, and if I liked it, then she had three more novels written by Kijewski. I love women P.I. stories and couldn't wait to get started. Overall, I still don't understand where reviewer, jjjax, comes off with a one-star review. But hey, to each their own. The only reason I didn't give this book a five-star rating was because I thought there were some parts she just threw in to make more words, so the plot slowed down at times before it picked back up. But...I still enjoyed the book. I think what threw me was the way Kijewski sounds so much like Janet Evanovich. Then I got to looking at their pictures and thought they even looked somewhat alike. Actually, I thought the resemblance was quite amazing. Jikewski started out with the dog named Ranger in this book, and she had the grandmother that was a bit "different". Her dialogue was witty and quick. They (Evanovich & Kijewski) write so much alike that it blew my mind. And Evanovich comes up with the Ranger character and the grandmother that is definitely "different". Then all of a sudden, after writing nine books, it's as if Kijewski just drops off the face of the earth. Can't seem to figure that one out either, since she was really on a roll. Before the week is over, I will have the entire collection of Kijewski's books. So that'll give me plenty of time for more reviews a little later. To the fans of women P.I.s, I recommend this one. Go for it. You might just like it. I'm sure it's available at most of the local libraries, and if not, ask them to get it for you.

When a Sacramento lawyer commits suicide during the Christmas
season, his firm hires private detective Kat Colorado to find out what
prompted the deed and was there something behind the act that could
harm the company. It does not take much work on the part of Kat to
realize that the victim was being blackmailed and who, being an
honorable individual, could not live with the transgression he believes
he committed. During her investigation, a wealthy senior citizen
informs Kat that she is also a victim of a blackmailer and hires the
private investigator to discover the identity of the extortionist.
....... Kat finds a link between her two cases since both individuals have
given a large donation to the Hope For Children's Foundation. Kat
obtains a record of all the large contributors to the charity and soon
ferrets out that many of these contributors are victims of the same
extortionist. As Kat closes in on the culprit, the killer becomes
aware of the hunter on his trail. He tries to silence Kat by
blackmailing one of her loved ones. When that fails, he resorts to
something more lethal.
....... Karen Kijewski is one of the mystery genre's most talented writers.
She gifts her audience with a compelling and fast paced story line and
characters who gain reader empathy. KAT SCRATCH FEVER is a mind
blowing who-done-it that employs a clever sleight of the hand, false
leads, and unusual paths that typically lead the reader to a dead end
(or cul-de-sac) to lead readers down the wrong road. It will take a
mystery IQ of genius to figure out who the villain is in this moving
thriller actually is.

I was given a hardcover edition of this book as a gift a few years ago, and it sat there until recently, when I decided to check it out. While Kijewski's writing is far from awful, I just don't see what the hubbub is all about. The pacing is slow, the book feels padded, and her protagonist becomes increasingly irritating as the book progresses. I like my gumshoes tough and smart, and Kat Colorado is neither; she just seems to flail around hoping something will occur to her. Many - no, most - of the characters are cardboard cut-outs, too. Maybe Kijewski was just filling a contractual obligation with this book - it sure felt like she phoned it in. I found it hard to "tough it out" till the end on this one.

I've enjoyed many of Karen Kijewski's previous novels, and I think Kat Colorado is a solid character, much more interesting than V. I. Warshawski or Kay Scarpetta. (Nobody comes close to Kinsey Millhone, of course.) But this volume in the series seemed to fall flat for me. Several times I found my attention wandering; the plot didn't keep me interested and I found myself bored.
One flaw with this book is that there are too many victims and not enough suspects. I guessed who the criminal was about halfway through the novel. It wasn't that hard to figure out, because by process of elimination, everybody else was either a target or too obvious to be the culprit.
I find it interesting that the other reviewers of this book either loved it or hated it. The truth probably lies somewhere in between. Kijewski's characters are strong enough to survive a weak plot; one can only hope that this book is an exception to an otherwise fine series.
