With a steamy Southern plot and a sassy new heroine, this Edgar Award-winning novel debuts an exceptional new series. Attorney Deborah Knott is North Carolina's answer to V.I. Warshawski, a legal sleuth with a knack for sniffing out the most baffling crimes. Deborah has just done the unthinkable: entered the heated race for judge of old-boy-ruled Colleton County. The only female candidate, she's busy reeling in voters and giving campaign speeches. There couldn't be a worse time for Gayle Whitehead to beg Deborah to investigate the 18-year-old unsolved murder of Gayle's mother, Janie. Gayle wants the busy attorney to poke around for any new clues the police may have missed all these years. Unlikely, thinks Deborah; until she discovers that not all the details of Janie's case made it out of confidential police files.

Filled with the patter of Southern voices and populated with a cast of colorful characters, Bootlegger's Daughter expertly unwinds a funny, cunningly-crafted tale of mystery and deceit in North Carolina's backwoods. Download and start listening now!

    " Lightweight but entertaining, and Maron really knows North Carolina backwards and forwards. "

    " This novel won so many awards (Edgar, Agatha, Macavity, Anothy) that I was expecting something really blow you away fantastic, and it wasn't that. Maron's writing is good bordering on great, but other then in a few key spots it isn't any more then you would expect from a modern pulp detective novelist. I was truly disappointed with the plot. The book was too short, there were really no major suspects other then the one who turns out to have done it, very unsuprising ending. I liked that she wrote a woman detective who skirted the line (no pun intended) between bitchy/hardboiled/ Clintonesq and femminine. I also liked the setting, rural North Carolina, a place Maron seems to have a feel for although she occasionally writes stereotypes instead of interesting characters. I would have liked more mystery and less setting/background, but seeing as this is the first book in a series I'll forgive it. That being said, I wouldn't go out of my way to find the sequals, either. A solid B mystery "

    " For those who like a sultry Southern mystery this is a great series. A large family, lots of cooking and a no-nonsense, sassy, Southern judge as your detective. A good series. "
