A Grave Talent

Laurie R. King: A Grave Talent (UK 1996)

From the Publisher:
Kate Martinelli, a recently promoted Homicide detective, and Alonzo Hawkin, a world-weary cop trying to make a new life in San Francisco, could not be more different but are thrown together to solve a brutal crime - the murders of three young girls.

Their search takes them to a rural colony, close to the place where the bodies were found. Here they meet the enigmatic artist Vaun, who is hiding a terrible secret from her past and her real identity.

As Martinelli and Hawkin get nearer to a solution, they realise the crimes may not be the sexually motivated killings they had seemed. There is a coldly calculating and tortuous mind at work which they must outmanoeuvre if they are to prevent further carnage and the destruction of a shining talent.

Laurie R. King: A Grave Talent. HarperCollins, ISBN: 0006493548 (January, 1996), 310 p., £5.99 (?).

A Grave Talent

Laurie R. King: A Grave Talent (USA 1995)

From the Publisher:
This gripping debut of the Kate Martinelli mystery series won the Edgar Award for Best First Mystery, generating wide critical acclaim and moving Laurie R. King into the upper tier of the genre. As A Grave Talent begins, the unthinkable has happened in a small community outside of San Francisco. A string of shocking murders has occurred, each victim an innocent child. For Detective Kate Martinelli, just promoted to Homicide and paired with a seasoned cop who's less than thrilled to be handed a green partner, it's going to be a difficult case. Then the detectives receive what appears to be a case-breaking lead: it seems that one of the residents of this odd, close-knit colony is Vaun Adams, arguably the century's greatest painter of women, a man, as it turns out, with a sinister secret. For behind the brushes and canvases also stands a notorious felon once convicted of strangling a little girl. What really happened on that day of savage violence eighteen years ago? To bring a murderer to justice, Kate must delve into the artist's dark past--even if she knows it means losing everything she holds dear.
