A final book entry before an extended break...

Category Book Reviews

I finished up Snow White & Rose Red by Ed McBain last night.  This is a pretty short novel featuring Matthew Hope as a lawyer who often ends up playing detective (also an older book...  1985).  In this story, there are two plot lines going on.  In the first, Hope is retained by a young lady who's been involuntarily committed to a mental institution.  She seems very sane, and blames the situation on her mother who is trying to control a chunk of money she's inherited.  In the other plot line (that seems totally unrelated), a pair of detectives find the body of a young lady in a swamp.  She was shot in the throat and her tongue was cut out, and she's been there for six to nine months.  As the two plots unfold, they start moving towards each other with a twist at the end...  Good read.


Gravatar Image1 - I found it amusing that the Amazon link for the book (I only clicked it due to curiosity as to whether it was still in print) had the following suggestions for related books:
