Item description for Chosen for Death (Thea Kozak Mysteries) by Kate Clark Flora...
Thea Kozak's younger sister is murdered, leaving Kozak wondering if her sister's adoption and search for her birth parents have something to do with her death. New paperback edition of the 1994 novel that introduced Kozak.
Outline Review Fans of smart, sexy, slightly screwed-up female crime solvers can add a new name to their list of favorite characters: Thea Kozak. When the heroine of Kate Flora's Chosen for Death takes time away from her career as a consultant to private schools to solve the disturbingly brutal murder of her adopted sister, Carrie, her investigation turns up painful truths she's reluctant to face. Still recovering from the emotional desolation of her husband's accidental death and the shock of Carrie's murder, Thea reenacts her sister's search for her birth mother in hopes of finding the killer in the process. Accompanying Thea--and occasionally battling with her--on her journey of discovery is Andre Lemieux, a Down Eastern detective with more than crime solving on his mind. Flora's full-bodied, complex characters bob and weave, and occasionally collide, in an intricately laid plot that explores the sometimes uncomfortable side of intimacy. More than just another well-written detective novel, Chosen for Death is also a thought-provoking study in identity, autonomy, and family dynamics that mystery lovers are certain to enjoy.

What a Page Turner! Apr 4, 2000
I luckily discovered Chosen for Death at the library last week. Thea, a loveable heroine, reminded me of Kinsey Milhone and Dr. Kay, two of my favorite mystery characters. The plot was strong, and it took me almost to the end to figure out the murderer, always a plus. If you're looking for something slightly different than the usual suspects, so to speak, give Kate Flora a try.
gripping mystery novel about murder in the family Jan 24, 1997
This novel is Kate Floras first mystery novel. The
story centers around a young woman, whose sister
is suddenly murdered. She decides to investigate on
her own, and in doing so must go to the town where
her younger, adopted sister had been murdered to
examine the life of her sister, the associates and
boyfriends. Not only does she have to work on the
mystery, but she also has her own thriving business
and a couple of men in her life to deal with. This novel
is not merely a mystery novel, for it doesn't merely
center on the mystery at hand, but also on the life of the
sister left behind in the tragedy. I highly recommend
this novel if you want more than just the average
mystery! Its gripping at times, humourous, engaging,
and has a very unexpected ending that even left
me surprised!! The author writes along the lines of
Mary Higgins Clark or Gloria murphy...great reads
