    I m still thinking about the very last line in this book It rattled my sensibilities I actually gasped out loud Margaet Maron is such a talented writer This fifth book in her Sigrid Harald series is my favorite so far She had a side story going about another murder while Sigrid was solving the case about the dancer thrown to her death, both stories connected by one character After the dancer case is solved, the tale ends with the side story murder in a vivid scene that likely won t leave your he [...]

    I totally love Sigrid Herald and I ve been enjoying this series, but I had a hard time with this particular story I thought it kind of unlikely that, given the circumstances of the murder, the police wouldn t have immediately hauled all of the dancers, especially the male dancers, down to the station for holding and intensive questioning They probably would have had to let everyone go after 48 hours because they didn t have any concrete evidence on any of them, but it just struck me as so weird [...]

    Margaret Maron s BABY DOLL GAMES was quite mysterious and compelling I did not guess most of the surprises clues were there but subtle, just as they should be.I am currently enjoying a sequential reading of the Sigrid Harald series, to be ready for the new one she s working on, as I prefer reading a series in order Friends were discussing love scenes and our preference for courteous allusions rather than detailed descriptions of interlocking parts Here s a perfect love scene from BABY DOLL GAMES [...]

    I liked this one a bit than some of the others, and as they teeter between 2 and 3 stars, 3 stars Maron often spends a significant portion of her set up chapters describing the geometry of the crime scene minutely Each time, I try to hold the steps in my head to build a picture, but for some reason, it doesn t work for me Then I just read on anyway, wondering if I d figure things out sooner if I put effort into it Oh well.

    This is a quick read and fun as a mystery can be.I read all of the Deborah Knott books up to 1988 when this Sigrid Harald was published A check of shows that now there are 20 Deborah Knott tales and at least 8 Sigrid Harald books I see a visit to the library once I get my card renewed I highly recommend.

    I got this for free so it was worth the price but not much I hadn t realized when I picked it up that it wasn t part of the Deborah Knott series This one, set in New York City, has little to recommend it except it was something to read on a trip.

    BOTTOM LINE One of the best Sigrid Harald stories, so far 5 of 8 , with a strong theater based plot one of my fave sorts of mysteries and a nice wallop of emotional stuff mixed in as well A classy but flashy child psychologist and her nephew are at a neighborhood dance troupe s Halloween performance for children when the lead dancer is killed, onstage, while under a spotlight, in full view of the audience Sigrid is assigned the case, and while her roommate Roman is the scenario writer for the pr [...]

    It s not you, Sigrid, it s me I don t like police procedurals and mysteries that have lots of clues involving time lines and room maps So why am I reading these books Because I love the cozy series about Deborah Knott, that s why Somewhere the two series converge when Deborah visits New York I stopped reading the Deborah novels until I got up to speed on the Sigrid novels I want to have a sense of who Sigrid is so when the two meet, I can understand where each is coming from.If you like to read [...]

    Maron is masterful with this twist on the closed room mystery The murder occurs on stage in full view of an audience, many of them children There are parallel stories interwoven A small group of suspects, members of a dance company It all comes together in the end when Sigrid has a flash of insight Intriguing mystery with a bombshell ending.And love the main character Sigrid is an endearing blend of assurance and insecurity Her personal and professional life overlap again when her housemate turn [...]

    This seems to be my week for reading old books.There are two parts to this story the actual mystery, and the character interactions Mystery, not much fun People, amazing.The dance scenes are wonderful, the squabbling actors are fun, the police procedures just drag And the psychologist s sub plot is a wonderful contrast with self congratulatory tone and interesting technique.I like Maron s Deobrah Knott series much better, and the other Sigrid Harald books are also better than this one.

    5 in the NYPD Lt Sigrid Harald series.NYPD Lt Sigrid Harald series When a shadowy figure kills a dancer in a little Greenwich village theatre before an audience of horrified children, detective Sigrid Harald is outraged Her instincts tell her it was a crime of passion but she has no evidence To find out the truth she uses special dolls to get the children to talk about what happened that night.

    I m hooked on this series by Margaret Maron and will read every book got me started by offering the first book either free or for.99 In the first 4 the culprit was someone I didn t want to be guilty, but that was no longer true in this book The main character is very interesting but I would like her romance to burn a bit brighter The mysteries always make sense and the other characters provide interesting lives.

    A dancer, the leading light of a small dance troupe, is murdered during a performance Lieutenant Sigrid Harald has to figure out which of the other members of the group is guilty and how the crime connects to the still unsolved murder of a child A basic mystery, reasonably well plotted and with believable characters A subplot involving a self centered psychologist and a different crime is distracting, however.

    More like 2 1 2 stars Tillie is still out of the picture, recovering from the injuries from the last book, and Sigrid is partnered with a totally unsympathetic, about to retire cop He was once partnered with her father, but we don t really get to learn anything about him or his death yet The therapist made me twitch.

    The story interested me however, this is not my favorite series of hers For some reasons I find the series date and the main character not every likable.The relationships with the cast of characters I did find interesting and thought provoking Throughout the entire read, the lighting man interested me the most.

    Didn t actually read this the paper and ink are SO poor it was painful to try to read I know Maron is a very well respected author Surely Severn House isn t self publishedThe quality of the physical book is painful, though Couldn t get through than a couple of pages.

    This one seemed a little disjointed The subplot with Dr Ferrell seemed out of place, and didn t do much to advance the story, for me.

    I ve read this author before, and really liked her While this book is okay, I think some of her others are better Interesting setting though.

    A typical Harald case We see officers work with Sigrid while Tillie recovers from injuries incurred in previous book Anne has than a cameo this time The twist at the end is memorable

    Exellent blending of three seemingly unrelated crimes I completely missed the murderers in all three cases Sigrid Harald is the opposite of Deborah Knott but just as interesting.

    I really enjoy the books with Deborah Knott as the main character than those with Sigrid Harald, but Margaret Maron doesn t let you done.
