I liked these books

The stories were all very well thought out a nd put together. The people all seemed real and so.e were too real! I really disliked the Assistant Chief of police.
If you get a chance to read any of Blair Howard's books do so ...You won't be sorry.

Definitely not a strong woman story

Main character is whiney, lazy with a mean sense of humor. I made it through all 3 stories hoping she would mature and grow with her job, she doesn't.

If only this strong woman stayed that way

Loved the first book but into the second book it appeared she suddenly became a pushover that allowed blatant sexual harassment and discrimination. Sickening. Redeems herself but wasn’t in the original ball busting character to allow it to go on for so long. Wanted to give 4.5 but didn’t allow. Still a good read but dang why write her as a pushover after establishing her as a strong capable female. I do suggest this series still hoping she remains strong in next 3. Great performance by narrator.

Entertaining stories and narration

I really love Kate Gazarra. These stories are very entertaining police procedural stories but a bit gory in parts for me. The narration is very good.

Nice Try but NO Character here

Kate is a spin off from Harry Starke novels.

The character tries to act like a man by using profanity and acting tough but it comes across as bad writing and an unlikable character.

She acts tough but is not and tries to become cerebral but is not.

Nice trie but no cigars he. Bring on more Harry Starke and forget this franchise.

The gritty cop v the murderer and misogyny.

Having listened or read the Harry Starke novels I was looking forward to this new series but with a bit of trepidation as it seems things don't usually match what you are expecting.
These 3 novels didn't disappoint at all. Kate sounded as gritty as I had imagined from her appearance in the Starke series. Not only did she have to solve a murder but overcome the bigotry we have come to expect when a women ranks higher than her male colleagues. The murders were hard to solve, especially the last one.
Can Kate keep her job or will she wash out to her misogynistic boss? Great to read or listen. Highly recommended
