ROSEMARY REMEMBERED by Susan Wittig Albert
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Nov. 1, 1995

"The ingredients in Bayles's fourth case (Hangman's Root, 1994, etc.) are familiar enough, but they're combined with an herbalist's taste—and with enough humor and deftness to make this Albert's strongest book yet."
It isn't bad enough that lawyer-turned-herbalist China Bayles discovers the body of her accountant Rosemary Robbins; she also has to deal with her live-in Mike McQuaid's suspicion that Rosemary was shot by recently freed wife-killer Jake Jacoby—who just might have tried to get at McQuaid, the ex-cop who arrested him, by killing the woman he thought was Bayles.

BOOK REVIEW

Released: June 1, 1995

"Despite Shelden's relentless animus for Greene as a person and a writer, this propaganda campaign can neither surpass nor subvert the Greene legend. (16 pages b&w photos, not seen)"
Trying to hunt down the controversial, complex Greene (190491) as the Harry Lime of the literary racket, Shelden (Orwell, 1991, etc.) succeeds less in decoding the deceptions of Greene's life than in creating a trail of false leads. Read full book review >
