I believe this was meant to be the final entry in Maron's Sigrid Harald series; the cover actually calls it "the eighth and final book". But looking at my catalog I see there is one more, published several years later (and not counting the two books in which Deborah Knott and Sigrid appear together). In this one, Sigrid is coping with a personal loss, while helping investigate the murder of an art dealer in her lover's apartment. The art world isn't a very pleasant place, if this book gives any kind of true representation of it, and I didn't much enjoy spending time with the people involved in the pertinent shenanigans. But I have come to like Sigrid as she has loosened up a bit through the series, her housemate is a delight, and some of the other detectives are interesting characters with their own story lines as well. Once the murder occurred, things got more interesting, and I had a notion (wrong, as usual) about whodunnit. For completion, and because it is on my shelf already, I'll go on to finish the series by reading Take Out. I think, though, that if I didn't have it on hand, I might skip it, as Sigrid is left in a pretty good place at the end of Fugitive Colors; I have read the two Deborah Knott books in which she appears (which take place after FC in their world); AND Take Out gets lukewarm to rotten reviews, albeit mostly from readers who admit to not having read the rest of the series. I'll just decide for myself, shall I? ( )

Good addition to the Sigrid Harald mystery series. ( )

I haven't read any of the other books in this series, so I'm not sure why I would buy a copy of this book for my bookshelf. But there it sat - answering a need for a certain title in a challenge I thought I'd enter but never got around to. And once this made it into my short stack, I decided to have a go.

And I was pleasantly surprised. Sigrid is a real woman, not a superwoman. A woman of a certain age. A woman whose private life isn't rosily romantic. And the mystery was good. I enjoyed the NYC setting which surprised me, I guess because of the cover art.

This may well be a series that I continue - but from #1. ( )

Read.

Sigrid Harald's character grows in color and complexity as she recovers from two. Deaths, one as an officer and one very up close and personal. The two mysteries to be solved are polar opposites but contain enough stimulus to drive the story. Sigrid is appropriately the center of this very good entry in this fine series. Looking forward to when the country cousins come to the "Naked City" where there are at least 8 million stories. ( )

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain:
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year's leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last year's bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide.
there are a hundred places where I fear
To go,--so with his memory they brim.
And entering with relief some quiet plae
Where never fell his foot or shone his face
I say, "There is no memory of him here!"
And o stand stricken, so remembering him.
--Edna St. Vincent Millay

This is for Joe,
who still doesn't like mushy dedications:
Without you, my dear,
life (and writing) would be a lot less fun.

She lay motionless beneath the blanket and stared at the ceiling dry-eyed, fighting against doing this to herself again, yet unable to resist.
