Kendall's crackerjack amateur-sleuth novel, set in the days of Mad Men, reminds you how much has changed since then, but also that the rules for writing a knockout mystery remain the same: compelling characters, vivid setting, absorbing story. --Timothy Hallinan, award-winning author of the Poke Rafferty Bangkok thrillers
and the Junior Bender mysteries
Kendall paints a vivid portrait of the times everything from macrame purses to bell bottoms and beads but it s her protagonist who wins our hearts in a mystery that explores issues as timely today as they were for the Woodstock generation. Highly recommended. --Lynne Raimondo, author of the Mark Angelotti crime novels, Dante's Wood, Dante's Poison
, and Dante's Dilemma
Vivid detail of the 1960s and a clever plot make Rainy Day Woman an outstanding follow-up to Kay Kendall s strong debut, Desolation Row. Austin Starr is a memorable protagonist, and Kendall s skill at crafting a compelling mystery kept me turning the pages! --Robert Rotstein, author of The Bomb Maker s Son
and Corrupt Practices
