One of the delights I’ve experienced in my writing career was the opportunity to conduct a phone interview with Dorothy Uhnak about a year or so before her tragic suicide in 2006. I’d read all of her novels, so I felt as if I’d had prepared enough. I needn’t have worried. She was a pistol, very friendly and engaging. You can read my interview and essay here: tiny/ge08r. The Bait won the 1969 Edgar Award for the best first novel, and Anthony Boucher praised it in his New York Times review [...]

I wish I could remember how I came across this book. Perhaps I stumbled across it while I was reading (and reading about) Dorothy Salisbury Davis's Julie Hayes mysteries. Like Julie, Christie Opara was born (and by that, I mean published) in the late 1960s, and like Julie, she lives in New York. But Julie is what I think is called an amateur sleuth, while Christie is an NYPD detective, based on the author Uhnak's own experiences. The basic storyline: Christie is used as bait to catch a serial ki [...]

A rather unpleasant police procedural about a female detective serving as bait for a serial rapist and killer. The killer is truly creepy, with no hair, a dream-like manner, and a feeling that he can judge women better than anyone else. Christie seems to be based to a certain extent on the author who has the cop jargon down, as well as a very masculine style, almost lovingly dwelling over one of the rapes. I preferred the author's nonfiction writing

This is a great story about a policewoman who, along with the rest of her team, must figure out the pattern of a unknown killer, then find a way to stop him. Many other things are going on during this time, and hard choices must be made. Great story, with very likable characters!!!

A Bit tame by modern standards, but at the time a move in the right direction, must surely been one of the first crime novels to f3eature a Lady detective. What I did find particulary interesting was the amount of time the police actually wasted trying to type up reports on dilapidated typewriters!
