  •  I liked Kate's books (8+ / 0-)

    but I thought they got very sad as they went along.  I love the dvd of Case Histories that is based on the stories.

    •  yes, sad (6+ / 0-)

      i'll have to see the dvd but Jason Isaacs fits the physical impression I have of Jackson Brodie.

      i always wonder how do mystery writers come up with what they do? do they research events and articles?

      how do they know about these horrible things that happen?

      i am usually about as curious about the writer as much as about the book.

      Case Histories is next on my list. I'm not doing this in order.

      •  I used to see things in the newspaper (7+ / 0-)

        that were so weird I doubt they could even be used for ideas.  Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction.

        Many years ago a well-known lady was murdered in her home on the Mott estate next to a college I attended and the local newspaper spent pages and pages...full length pages...telling about her and trashing her.  I was so angry though I didn't know her.  It was killing her reputation after she was killed.

        It was brutal.

        My only connection was that I knew the wife of the man who found her.  Many years later the murderer was caught.  I am still horrified.

        As a book, it might be very exciting, but as truth is was very painful and tragic.
