Dorothy Salisbury Davis is truly an underrated writer. I pick up her books whenever I come across them at library book sales. I need to read one soon!

Yes, I think she is definitely in the column of underrated authors! I wish she, like PD James (aged 90) was still writing, but I believe she is most definitely retired, George.

Wow! She's a dead ringer for Patricia Highsmith in that photo.

I always thought she was in the Ursula Curtiss school of suspense fiction. Maybe I'm wrong. I can't recall any of her books that I may have read. I'll have to review her bibliography and if nothing rings a bell I'll track this one down. I'm sure the CPL has loads of her books being a local gal and all.

There may be some similarities with Curtiss, but Davis is a different kind of read. I think she was nominated for an Edgar Award 8 times, so you might start with one oft those, like "Where the Dark Streets Go."
