A Kate Martinelli Mystery

Biographical note:

King is the New York Times bestselling author of twelve Mary Russell mysteries, beginning with The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, and five contemporary novels featuring Kate Martinelli, including To Play the Fool, A Grave Talent, and With Child. An Edgar Award winner, she lives in Northern California, and her new novel, The Bones of Paris will be published September 2013.

Excerpt from book:

A conversation

So it was settled: Jules would come and stay with Kate from the wedding until New Year's.

With one adjustment to the plan.

On the phone, the afternoon before the wedding, Kate talked to her partner at his house on the other side of town.

"Al, I was thinking.  If it's all right with you and Jani, I thought Jules and I might go north for a few days over Christmas.  Maybe as far as Washington."

"To see Lee?"

"Possibly.  If we feel like it.  I had a letter from her last week, asking me to come to her aunt's island for Christmas if I could get it off."

"Does she know you're on leave?"

"She doesn't know anything.  I didn't tell her about the shooting, or that I got hurt.  I didn't want to worry her, and once I got out of the hospital, it didn't really seem like something I could put in a letter, somehow.  She did say she was sorry not to make it to your wedding, that she's writing you and sending you.....

"Are you two about to break up?" he asked bluntly.

"Jesus, Al, you do ask some good ones, don't you?  I don't know.  I just don't know anymore.  I don't even know if I care.  I haven't even talked to her in four months, just these damn stupid cards of hers.  But there won't be any scenes, if that's what you're worried about.  I wouldn't take Jules into that. If we do go--and I really haven't made up my mind one way or the other--then we'd just go for the day, maybe overnight, depending on the ferry schedule, but then we'd leave and go do something else.  Does Jules ski?"

"Better than I do.  Which isn't saying much, I admit."

"Maybe we could go to Rainier or Hood, then.  If Jani approves."

"I'll talk to her, but I doubt she'll have any problems with it.  Do you want the car?"

"I'm going to take the Saab off its blocks.  And if driving turns out to be a problem, we'll come home.  I'm not going to risk passing out or anything while I'm driving Jules.  You know that, Al.  I'd never put Jules into danger. Never."


August, September


Kate came awake to a question.  She lay inert for a few seconds until it was answered, by the familiar groan of the Alcatraz foghorn, seemingly a stone's throw from the foot of her bed.  Home.  Thank God.

Fingers of sweet sleep tugged at her, but for a moment she held herself back, mildly, dutifully curious.  Funny, she thought muzzily, I wouldn't have thought that noise would wake me up.  I hear it all summer, like living inside a pair of asthmatic lungs, but the only time I noticed it was when they tried replacing it with that irritating electronic whine.  The telephone?  Don't think it rang.  If so, it's stopped now.  Let them call back at a human hour. The neighbor's dog?  Probably the dream, she decided, which had been stupefyingly tedious even to a sleeping mind, a cop's variation on the "moving luggage from one place to another--Oh God, I've lost one" theme, involving the transfer of prisoners, one at a time,
“Smart, thoughtful...Warm characterizations...searching insights...this detective has a mind that is always on the move.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Martinelli is the kind of person you’d like to know and talk with over many lunches, a smart and tough woman.”—Chicago Tribune
