Really enjoyed her books back then!

BV Lawson

Definitely a classic, Patti - Dover Books brought out some re-issues in 2013, I think.


Dover is an acquired taste and after reading the first one, I took a pass on the other two. I think it's important to emphasize that Dover has absolutely no redeeming qualities and it's best to think of the books as satires not true mysteries.

BV Lawson

I think that's a very good point, Deb, and very apt! If a reader is in the mood for an anti-hero of sorts, this might be for you.

Richard R.

I agree with Deb, I bought several before I read any, then wished I hadn't, after reading the first one. Porter is very good at making the reader dislike her character.
