I have got to read something of hers. Don't know why I haven't already. Thanks for the reminder, Dean!

Charlaine Harris

It's been so long since I've read any of her books. I'd like to revisit them. Thanks for reminding me of her, Dean.

Mary, I think you will enjoy her. And rereading her is fun too. I have reread a couple of them recently, and enjoyed them immensely.


Wow, to have a compliment like that from Christie! Thanks for this series, Dean! I'm really enjoying it.

Recently I picked up a yard sale copy of a Del Shannon Luis Mendoza book (to add to the ones I collected in years past) I love the interlocking stories of the LAPD homicide department, but I have hesitated to recommend them to friends because of the attitudes toward mental illness, gays, hippies and the reflection in the early books toward women in law enforcement. I know some of that changed in her later books, but it is still hard to read. But even now she can suck me into the world and the characters.

Yes, Shannon was an entertaining storyteller, but in her personal life she was a member of the John Birch Society -- a group not known for its progressive views on social issues. :-)
