Take Out | Margaret Maron
4 posts | 1 read | 2 to read
From New York Times bestselling, award-winning author Margaret Maron--winner of the Edgar Award, Agatha Award, Anthony Award, and Macavity Award for her classic mystery The Bootlegger's Daughter--comes a stunning new mystery featuring NYPD Detective Sigrid Harald. "Every Margaret Maron is a celebration of something remarkable." --New York Times Book Review "Maron writes with wit and sophistication." --USA Today "There's nobody better." --Chicago Tribune Sigrid is still reeling from the untimely death of her lover, acclaimed painter Oscar Nauman, when she is called to investigate the deaths of two homeless men in the West Village. The police at first assume an overdose, until they realize that one of the men shows no signs of drug use. Then when containers of poisoned takeout food are found nearby, Sigrid's case is suddenly much more complicated. As Sigrid investigates, she uncovers an intriguing neighborhood history: a haughty mafia widow and her disgraced godson, a retired opera star with dark secrets, an unsolved hit-and-run, and the possible discovery of a long-missing painting that will rock the art world. Soon the case is fraught with myriad suspects and motives. Who killed the two homeless men, and why? And which one was the intended victim? Or was the poisoned food meant for someone else entirely? Throwing herself into the murder investigation to distract herself from her personal grief, Sigrid still can't stop wondering what led Nauman across the country to the winding mountain road that took his life. Until she meets a man who may hold the answers she seeks. In her newest gripping mystery, Margaret Maron's beautifully drawn characters and unpredictable plot twists prove once again why she's one of today's most beloved writers. "Opening a new Margaret Maron is like unwrapping a Christmas gift." --Cleveland Plain Dealer "Of today's series writers none has been more successful at weaving the bond between star and audience than Margaret Maron." --San Diego Union-Tribune

I‘m a little late to the #5fordinner party, and I don‘t know how to make a collage, but here goes anyway. I‘d invite a group of female #mystery writers and just listen to them share stories. Either I‘d cook up a massive batch of spaghetti or order take out (not poisoned), or maybe it would be potluck!🔹Margaret Maron 🔹Attica Locke 🔹Sue Grafton 🔹Faye Kellerman 🔹Tana French

OK, one more. Margaret Maron has written another Sigrid Harald mystery. I've read all of them except for Fugitive Colors and I had to buy that one because I couldn't find my copy. So, yay, I have two more in the series to read. #slaythatseriesreadathon
