on Aug. 21, 2011 :
At the weekend I read those three gems (the first one was originally published in 1991). First I loved the characters Gianna, head of the hate crimes unit and her team, Mimi, the investigative reporter and her editor and friends - the main, but also the secondary and tertiary characters are great. Then there is the crisp, neat writing with a great plot and a style where every word and sentence counts - pure pleasure! A sprinkling of romance and a not so easy relationship. And great plots. Sadly the cases of the hate crime unit could have easily happened today - so the plots feel fresh even after all those years. And for those looking for characters and settings outside the white mainstream, there are plenty of African-Americans in it too.
It is good to have such great books re-published and re-introduced to the growing readership of mysteries with great female characters.
