Woman's Eye by Sara Paretsky

Book Description

Crime is common ground for the twenty-one women writers in this extraordinary collection of contemporary mystery fiction. The voices here include professional crime solvers who take you from the mean streets of V.I Warshawski's Chicago in a case of music and murder...to the California freeway where Kinsey Millhone's beloved VW skids into a shooting...to the gang-held turf of Sharon McCone's San Francisco, where an eyewitness to a slaying says mum's the word. And then there are mothers, grandmothers, battered wives, and social workers- ordinary women in extraordinary situations whose voices reveal contemporary life as seen through a woman's eye. From the opening tale of a girl down-and-out in London and what she steals from a corpse...to the final story of a summer vacation in the Berkshires, complete with romance and sudden death...this unique collection brings us great mystery writing that engages both our intellects and our hearts. Includes stories from Liza Cody, Sue Grafton, Marcia Muller, Dorothy Salisbury Davis, Nancy Pickard, Amanda Cross, Faye Kellerman, Antonia Fraser, Julie SMith, Barbara Wilson, Susan Dunlap, Mary Wings, Marilyn Wallace, Gillian Slovo, Margaret Maron, Shelley SInger, Carolyn G. Hart, Carolyn Wheat, Maria Antonia Oliver, Sara Paretsky, and Dorothy B. Hughes.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Twenty-one all-new stories, mostly a somber, let's-take-ourselves-too-seriously collection featuring female protagonists from such women writers as old-timers Dorothy B. Hughes and Dorothy Salisbury Davis; England's Antonia Fraser; academe's Amanda Cross; a California pileup including Sue Grafton, Marcia Muller, Faye Kellerman, Julie Smith, Susan Dunlap, Mary Wings, Marilyn Wallace, and Shelley Singer, the unique Maria Antonia Oliver, and Paretsky herself, whose sluggishly belabored case for V.I. Warshawski and introduction here ("there is no one way to view women") hardly represent her best work. The one standout: Liza Cody's "Lucky Dip," about a tough pair of sisters on the street. Series characters Kinsey Millhone (in Grafton's moderately successful what-goes-around-comes-around story), Sharon McCone (in Muller's foray into gang rivalry) and Kiernan O'Shaughnessy (in Dunlap's all-too-predictable break-a-leg story) will win no new fans here, though Kate Fansler and her nephew (in Cross's droll, class act) just might. Overall, though, disappointing. (Kirkus Reviews)
