These eight stories are all taken from the collection A Woman's Eye (Delacorte, 1991). The tales are written by women and involve the rising stars of the female detective and mystery genre. Sara Paretsky, Nancy Picard, Susan Dunlap, Carolyn G. Hart, Antonia Fraser, Liza Cody, and Sue Grafton present plots that range from murder and alcoholism to the ancient customs of the Maori tribes of New Zealand. Some characters, like Kinsey Millhone, are well known to sleuth buffs; others are charming, one-time creations. Suspense, drama, psychological manipulation, and mystery all figure in this exciting collection. The readers-whose names are not listed on the packaging-are excellent, bringing their characters alive with accents, varied inflection, and variety of pitch. They will capture your imagination. Recommended.
