This reader (email@example.com) enjoyed CHAIN OF CUSTODY by Harry Levy.
The book was a definite, can't put down. I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Malone and his friends Arnie and Figlio. I have recommended "Chain of Custody" to all my mystery reading friends. This book lends itself well to a sequel. I felt no impediment to the medical or legal jargon and feel it actually made the reading more realistic. I loved it!!.
Author Elizabeth Daniels Squire had these comments:
I appreciated Andy Plonka's review of my WHERE THERE'S A WILL, and was
glad he liked my characters and my plotting and considered the book
entertaining, but I wanted him to know that I did research the possibility
that a person could be trapped and whirled in a hot dryer. (Which he
thought was "improbable.") I called my appliance dealer and found that it is
perfectly possible in one of the large sized dryers that are used for quilts
and blankets and such. If Andy looks at his local laundromat he can probably
see one of those just like the one in WHERE THERE'S A WILL. Must all danger
come from guns and poison? Why not a little creative variety?
I have your site on my favorite places list.
Dee (firstname.lastname@example.org) enjoyed THE LITHIUM MURDER by Camille Minichino.
I agree that Gloria Lamerino and her world
of Revere make a great mystery character
and setting. The next element in the
periodic table is beryllium!
Judy (email@example.com) is a Dennis Lehane fan.
His books should get 10 stars! They are so well written (and edited!) and the characters are people we really want to know. I have read all of them and always await a new one.
This reader (firstname.lastname@example.org) had these comments about POINT OF ORIGIN.
I enjoyed this book as I do all of Ms Cornwall's books. The only point I
found disconcerting was the death of Benton Wesley. I kept waiting for the
surprise ending ala Agatha Christie, where Benton surfaces and said that it
was a ploy to capture Carrie. Alas this was not to be. I am anticipating
her latest to see how Kay copes with the tragic loss of yet another lover.

I'd like to see a section on humorous mysteries. Also how about a yearly the reader recommend list? Thanks!
Author Roberta Gellis had these comments about the TMR review of A MORTAL BANE.
I'd like to thank Jean Mason for the most intelligent review of my book I've yet seen. I've had other reviews as enthusiastic (thank God), but none that recognized so clearly what I was trying to do..
This reader (firstname.lastname@example.org) was disappointed in MOON MUSIC by Faye Kellerman.
This book is one huge disappointment and a total waste of time and
money!! As I finished it, it went straight into the garbage. Flawed and
unlikeable characters are the rule. Even though I realize this is
fiction, it is totally beyond the realm of possibility or credibility.
Even though I have been entertained by some of her works in the past, I
doubt I'll bother with any more books by this author..
Susanne (email@example.com) has a series to recommend.
I would just like to recommend to anyone interested in the detective genre the Elvis Cole series by Robert Crais. I have loved all his books but his last one, L.A. Requiem was one of his best. I could barely put the book down and if I were reviewing the book, it would be a five star rating. I noticed none of his books have been reviewed by The Mystery Reader and I think it is time someone does.

Hi. I have been going to your site for about 3 weeks and I have to say that
it is very helpful. but....if you could, I'd like to see some books on FBI
Judy (firstname.lastname@example.org) enjoyed THE DEVIL'S TEARDROP by Jeffery Deaver.
When I read that Deaver had a new book, I was so excited- until I realized it wasn't a Lincoln Rhyme story. But what a great book! I don't think Lincoln's appearance was contrived- I found it comforting that Deaver would know that his readers were expecting this character and that he met our expectations. He is the only author other than Lawrence Block whom I feel can carry off multiple leading characters with equal ability. I was surprised that he has written 14 books but I'm going to the library (or to amazon.com) to see what they are. Hope we find older books with such great characters!
Lee (email@example.com) has a question.
Hello! I saw you at yahoo! Perhaps you can help: I recently heard an interview on NPR with a mystery writer who used to be a stereo salesman; his protagonist had the same vocation before becoming a PI. Do you know the name of this author? THANKS!
Pauline (firstname.lastname@example.org) enjoyed EVANS ABOVE by Rhys Bowen.
I enjoyed the book and the very colorful characters in that delightful
setting. I hope I will continue to enjoy the Rhys Bowen series with
Constable Evans as much I do M. C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth.
I belong to a mystery club and Evans Above will be my report for the
Jessica (email@example.com) has a question.
I have recently finished reading THE BITCH FACTOR by Chris Rogers.
A friend of mine told me she saw a movie that resembled the book. My question is,
is there a movie made from this book and if so what is the title?
