Stuart M Kaminsky recommends
thumb
The Death Merchant (2004)
(Diagnosis Murder, book 2)
Lee Goldberg
"A nifty creative take on the tradition of great amateur sleuths with a cast of quirky characters."
thumb
The Jewel of the North (2001)
(Jack London)
Peter King
"Dazzleing... A tale of high adventure and mystery worthy of Jack London himself."
thumb
The Miracle Strip (1998)
(Sierra Lavotini, book 1)
Nancy Bartholomew
"Nancy Bartholomew is a major new talent in the mystery field. Her characters crackle to life and her tale moves without a false note and at a pace that should be the envy of many well-known writers in the field who have forgotten that character, story, and pace are all essential. Nancy is terrific."
