THE SUDOKU MURDER by Shelley Freydont
Released: May 1, 2007

"Not as bad as most defiant-damsel sagas. Still, the conundrum of whether Kate will live to sleuth another day is a no-brainer."
A think-tank mathematician proves you really can go home again, in this series-starter from the creator of dance detective Lindy Graham-Haggerty (Halloween Murder, 2002). Read full book review >
HALLOWEEN MURDER by Shelley Freydont
Released: Sept. 1, 2002

"Freydont's indiscriminate inclusion of everything, from campy repartee to a plethora of one-dimensional suspects and their preposterous motives, epitomizes the kitchen-sink school of mystery writing."
To keep herself occupied while her dance troupe is on hiatus and her husband is in Paris contemplating a divorce, director Lindy Graham-Haggerty (Midsummer Murder, 2001, etc.) agrees to serve as Mary Elizabeth Porter's co-chair for Mischief Night, a teen-center fundraiser to be staged on the Van Cleef property, which includes barns, outbuildings, trees, fast-flowing streams, the open-air accommodations of eccentric storyteller Adam Crabtree, and perhaps remnants of the Underground Railroad.

MIDSUMMER MURDER by Shelley Freydont
Released: Aug. 1, 2001

"Freydont's third entombs a neatly turned, briskly paced, well-clued mystery in dreary country-house melodrama."
As rehearsal director of the Jeremy Ash Dance Company, Lindy Graham-Haggerty (High Seas Murder, 2000, etc.) has the plummy perk of traveling alongside her best friend Biddy McFee, the company's business manager, to a host of exciting locations for a series of gala recitals. Read full book review >
HIGH SEAS MURDER by Shelley Freydont
Released: Aug. 1, 2000

"Wisecracks that grate and a plot that lists make this no more appealing than its predecessor (Backstage Murder, 1999)."
A few pounds and decades past her dancing days, Lindy Graham-Haggerty is now directing the Jeremy Ash Dance Company, appeasing her own empty-nest syndrome by mothering its troupe, and glumly contemplating Christmas-New Year's without her husband as she boards the Maestro, a luxury yacht filled with two hundred lovers of the arts and entertainers from the world of opera, ballet, string quartets, and cabaret.

BACKSTAGE MURDER by Shelley Freydont
Released: Oct. 1, 1999

"Fans of Compromising Positions and its ilk may share Lindy's feeling that 'except for the murder and getting pushed down the trapdoor, this has been the most fun I've had in years.'"
Half a lifetime after she hung up her ballet slippers to marry and raise a family, Lindy Haggerty is back again as Lindy Graham, filling in for her injured friend Biddy McFee as rehearsal director for the Jeremy Ash Dance Company. Read full book review >
