To Fran Hinkel - Try Nancy Taylor Rosenberg's "Trial by Fire" and then "Abuse of Power" - I think trading books is a wonderful idea I wouldn't mind sending two for two - Babs -

To Lynn Silence (#39): The food critic book is written by Phyllis Richman. Richman actually is the Washington Post's restaurant critic.

Just finished "Dead Horse Paint Company" Earl Emerson's latest Mac Fontana book. I read it from front to back in one sitting so I must have liked it! Actually I would highly recommend anything by Emerson. The Thomas Black series are faster paced and have more action. A couple of them were a little weird.

Just finished "Stone Angel" by Carol either O'Connell or O'Connor. Great characters and I gather this was the latest in a series so I'm looking for the others. Any other fans of hers out there?

Hi all,

Have just finished reading Easy Meat [as mentioned above] by John Harvey. Really very good book although if people are used to the England described in Cozies this would be a bit of a shock - it tells it like it is now. No Scotland Yard, no respect for bobbies and no thanks for getting a result. Plenty of hot sweet tea consumed though!

Hello All has anyone read the new Sanders in hardback? Thanks to who ever may respond.


Fran Hinkel - 02:23pm Sep 22, 1997 PST(#51 of 1002)
You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

For those of you who love Sue Grafton: Have you checked out her homepage? It's pretty neat. If you're not familiar with her books this is a good site to visit. It gives you a bio on her character, Kinsey Milhone and a summary of all of her books thus far. You can read a chapter from "M" is for Malice and there's even a Kinsey Milhone trivia quiz. Interested? Go to

Any other fans of Kat Colorado out there? Karen Kijewski has created a good sleuth and her plotting is above average.

Glenda Bixler - 06:08am Oct 2, 1997 PST(#53 of 1002)

Hi, Kat Colorado deserves attention...after reading the first book with Kat, I went out and bought all that the bookstore had in stock... yes, I do enjoy a female in the role of investigator...but it's more than that...she's funny, she's good...

Anybody out there got a "thing" for all the detectives with cats? I think I've read them all...but somebody surprise me!!!

MARINA STALLSWORTH - 04:05pm Oct 2, 1997 PST(#54 of 1002)

I just finished reading "The Genesis Code" by John Case and thought it was very very good. Mystery, thriller, suspense, medical and religion all rolled into one. For better details, check out the review at I'd love to hear from anyone who's a mystery fan. I love reading and am just starting my own "mystery collection".

MARINA STALLSWORTH - 04:08pm Oct 2, 1997 PST(#55 of 1002)

Glenda Bixler -- have you checked out the books by authors "Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown"? Cute, mysteries. The authors cat and dog narrate the stories and give their own points of view on everything. Really entertaining.
