A Hot Tip About a Great Read

I’m always on the lookout for a new book by Marcia Biederman, and with her recent release, The Disquieting Death of Emma Gill, she’s outdone herself. With her outstanding journalism credentials and sly wit, Biederman skillfully untangles the knotty mix of seamy characters who transform themselves like escape artists, chaotic trials with locked-up witnesses and free-to-wander suspects, bungling investigators, foxy journalists, and deadly consequences. In the very beginning, young boys see some bags floating in the water, and off we go. What follows is a story of desperate women, those who broke the law to help them, and those who broke the law to help themselves. One of the best books I’ve read in a long time.
