This latest pk effort falters, largely because the story relies for its effect on characters with mixed-up identities and a penchant for lying. Professional translator Cassandra Reilly turns amateur sleuth when Frankie Stevens needs someone fluent in Spanish to accompany her to Barcelona to locate her estranged husband Ben, who has disappeared.
However, Cassandra soon learns that very little is what it seems. Frankie and Ben aren't separated, they're divorced. Moreover, Ben actually Bernadette isn't an ex-husband, but an ex-wife: Frankie is a transsexual. The bone of contention between them is their daughter Delilah.
Ben fled to Spain to escape the problems of their joint custody arrangement and because, now that Frankie is female, she wants to be Delilah's mother too. By the time the layers of deceit are revealed and Delilah has been kidnapped a few times, the child crawls off to get away from these people and have a nap--proving she's easily the brightest one of the lot.

There are a lot of reasons why, and no real excuses. The first series features Seattle printer and feminist Pam Nilsen as she discovers her sexuality and investigates crimes in her community. Mostly, however, the gender question is used as a recurring plot device. The descriptions of these structures were so awe-inspired that I had to stop reading and Google as many Gaudi images as I could call up. Griffith, Nicola. All rights reserved.
