Synopsis: MYSTERY & SUSPENSE FROM AN EDGAR WINNER

The creator of Judge Deborah Knott and Lieutenant Sigrid Harald and the winner of the Edgar Award for Best Novel, Margaret Maron is one of the finest contemporary mystery writers. Maron has a sensitivity about how time and place influence people and events. In Maron’s work the mystery story is as concerned with people as well as with puzzles.

Suitable for Hanging contains twenty of Margaret Maron’s best uncollected short stories, beginning with an early tale of a hitman trying to escape from the mob, to her newest stories about Deborah Knott and other mysteries set on Knott’s Colleton County. And one, featuring Roman Tramegra from the Lt. Sigrid Harald novels, takes place in Venice.

The book includes two new short stories, and an introduction and prefaces to each story by the author as well as a complete checklist of Margaret Maron's writings in the mystery field.

Cover painting, illustrating"The Dog That Didn't Bark," by Carol Heyer.

From Booklist: The award-winning Maron, creator of the Lieutenant Sigrid Harald and Judge Deborah Knott series, is also the author of an impressive assortment of short fiction, much of which is collected here. Maron's concern with the dynamics of time, place, and relationships is especially evident in these stories about how people try to deal with situations that may be beyond their control. A hit man trying to escape from the Mob is not as clever as he thinks he is. A family croquet match turns out to be much more than a game, and a stupid pet trick reveals sordid events. Some of the stories feature Deborah Knot and her Colleton County, North Carolina, home. Sigrid Harald doesn't appear, but Roman Tramegra, a supporting character from the Harald novels, stars in one story set in Venice. Most of the stories have been published elsewhere, but two are new. Maron has written an introduction to the collection as well as a brief preface to each story. Barbara Bibel
