Other Mystery Book Reviews Online

Roberta Alexander, who write the It's a Mystery column, recently reviewed four mysteries (published in the Contra Costa Times online edition). Her opening comments are so very true: "A sense of place roots a character and a story in a way that strengthen them so that the reader can get the benefit of travel without the jet lag. Some mystery authors have a particular knack for creating characters and situations that you cannot imagine taking place anywhere else."

The four books she reviewed are:

"Wildcat Wine," by Claire Matturro (William Morrow, $23.95, 295 pages);

"Last to Leave," by Clare Curzon (St. Martin's, $23.95, 256 pages);

"Over Her Dead Body," by Kate White (Warner Books, $24.95, 384 pages);

"The Cradle Robbers," by Ayelet Waldman (Berkley Prime Crime, $23.95, 218 pages).
