Many years ago I read "The Butcher's Boy" and "Metzger's Dog" good reading -I'll have to try on of the books Karin listed - but first I just bought "Sleeping Dogs" - Edie
I am also a Thomas Perry fan. I enjoyed his early books (I think that 'The Butcher's Boy' is a terrific crime novel) and have really enjoyed the 3 Jane whitefield novels. I think that 'Dance For The Dead' is the best of them so far (a great ending) and I quite liked 'Shadow Woman'. I understand that there is a fourth one, but I haven't seen it yet.
Just read Thomas Perry's latest Jane Whitefield book, The Face-changers. It's the first book of Perry's that I've read and really enjoyed it. Am looking forward to reading his other mysteries.
Like Lin, I read Facechangers first. I was than hooked. I went right out and got Vanishing Act. This was very good also. It showed the Jane character as much more human. I will continue reading this series.
Anybody read Death Benefits yet? Not a Jane, but supposed to still be good.
