Author Essay

I always look forward to a new mystery by Lee Harris.   Her novels about ex-nun Christine Bennett are in that central range between cozy and hardboiled — the perfect balance.  Ever since I encountered Christine Bennett in THE GOOD FRIDAY MURDER, which was nominated for an Edgar Award as best first novel, I’ve been fascinated by the author’s depiction and development of her heroine — Christine matures in surprising (but always believeable ways) as the series continues.   It would be hard to pick my favorite Lee Harris mystery, but certainly among my favorites is THE CHRISTENING DAY MURDER, in which a thirty-year-old unsolved murder has impact on present-day menace.
