Fiona Fitzgerald — star in a series of mystery novels and a soon to be TV series — is a woman of our times She has her doubts about her job as a homicide detective her colleagues her boss herself and Washington politics That makes her an attractive lead in the novels of veteran author Warren Adler who has created a fine Washington setting for her and some gritty murders to deal with Fiona knows the capitol inside out and this lands her many important cases to deal with; unfortunately that also means that she has to face many members of the political elite under uncomfortable circumstancesAs in all Fiona Fitzgerald novels in “American Sextet” Adler sketches the capitol and its inhabitants with skill and obvious inside knowledge — as a sidestep I like to refer to “Banuet Before Dawn” and “The Henderson Euation“ two of his mainstream novels that also take part in Washington and demonstrate the same skill in a different context Next to Fiona’s charming real character I find this Washington DC setting another major attraction This is not just ‘some’ city this is ‘it’ this is the place of power And as we all know with power comes abuseAs far as the story is concerned I found “American Sextet” ingenuous and original The end was than appropriate it was also cleverly found A crossroads of politics crime justice and personal vendettaPerhaps this is the special talent if Warren Adler to add something to a crime story that makes something out of it There’s a completeness to this Fiona Fitzgerald that I find rare in this genre Not only are we involved in the crime but we also get a relevant look into Fiona’s private life – a life that’s far from uncomplicated by the way These private matters have a habit of intruding on the story which is another typical talent of this author he creates real people and he does this with honesty Fiona Fitzgerald is a young woman in a male police force she’s also a minority with a biological clock to be exact and Adler doesn’t try to go around that – he makes it part of the story And then right when you think it’s just a sidestep he merges everything back together again like an unexpected fist in your face See what you think

This was a very good book until the end of the story just like the other Fiona Fitzgerald novel The author portrays the criminal so cunning and smart only to be outdone in the last few pages by Fiona yes the cops are supposed to get the bad guys but Mr Adler needs to slow down and how the case was cracked He goes from the cops knowing nothing to solving the case in literally the last 3 to 5 pages of the book This is still a good read to anyone who likes female detectives stories and I am one of those people
