    This is my 11th reading of one of the 14 Kate Fansler mysteries This book is not a mystery but a literary nod to John le Carré's Smiley couched within a treatise on women's euality very much of this book's publication date

    I may be grumpy lately but this is my second bad review of a favorite author today In the other books in this series I have really liked the character of Kate and her husband Reed Funny literate liberal and honest This Kate is NOT honest I'm disappointed to find that she has had affairs during her marriage And her excuse that she finds cons

    First off this is NOT a mystery Nothing remotely resembling a mystery occurs in this book Kate Fansler is a literature professor Her husband

    Didn't remember I had read this so I read it again Pretty dire actually filled with political correctness and male chauvinist pigs and anger against educated women If the 1990s in America were really like that I'm glad I wasam living here in Italy

    In back filling my GR with books read decades ago I suspect I am ranking many of them lower than I would have if ranked at the time Ah well so it goes; if I don't remember them well I suspect they should get no than it was OK

    The time I spent reading this is time I will never get back This was supposed to be a mystery or at least involve some spying Nothing close happened A woman having a midlife crisis tries to make a death into a murder it is not then gets a closed case to be re examined all while teaching a literature class in a law school full of misogynistic students and faculty It probably didn’t help that I have never read anything by John Le carre wh

    Kate Fansler is a professor of English Literature and her husband Reed is a Law School professor They are invited to teach one semester of Literature and Law for Kate and set up a clinic to help women in prison for Reed The law school where they will be teaching is a mediocre one with a very conservative faculty The one woman faculty member the law school had was run over by a truck Was she pushed? Kate meets

    Now that I am almost done with the whole series I can appreciate the evolution of the modern feminist movement which is reflected in Cross's plots This story in particular which focuses on the struggle of women in an academic setting although published in 1995 sounds not that dissimilar to some of what we read about harassment in the workplac

An Imperfect Spy

While guest teaching a semester at Schuyler Law School Kate Fansler gets to know an extraordinary secretary named Harriet who patterns her life after John le Carré's character George Smiley Harriet reveals that Schuyler has some serious skeletons swinging in. First off this is NOT a mystery Nothing remotely resembling a mystery occurs in this book Kate Fansler is a literature professor Her husband Reed is teaching a law clinic at Schuyler law school and Kate decides to co teach a law and literature class there for the semester The book is essentially one long boring case for feminism and how horribly women at least in the 1990 s are treated at universities The only vague hints of a mystery are that the only female teacher at the school was run over by a bus but this is uickly shown to be an accident There are lots of random references to John Le Carre s books for no particular reason The whole law and literature class was ridiculous Kate and her co teacher Blair don t decide on the date and time for the class until the week ahead of time let alone what the class will be covering A student randomly beats up Blair during class and Kate is not sure what they should do about it how about report the student the police for assault and have him expelled from school Nope all she does is think Blair is sexy for beating the student up in return gag Kate also annoyed me because she thinks it s fine to cheat on her husband but gets extremely jealous when another woman flirts with him I only finished this book because it is short and I thought something eventually must happen I was wrong NOTHING happens I ll definitely be avoiding this author in the future
