Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Pulver's new thriller slips a bit below the standard set in her notable Murder at the War, which introduced Sgt. Peter ("Obie") Brichter of the Charter, Ill., police. There is plenty of action here, but it's mostly synthetic, relying on improbable coincidences linked to Obie's campaign against the town's flagrant drug traffic. Infiltrating Tretower, the fortified ranch of former Chicago mosbster Nick Tellios, Obie offers to work as an informer for the suspected cocaine broker. The imposter meets Tellios's niece Katherine ("Kori") Price, his ward for 14 years since her parents were murdered when she was six. Falling in love with beautiful Kori, Obie becomes more determined to fight Tellios and his henchmen, creating attenuated side plots whose outcomes are practically telegraphed. When Kori is in dire danger, the super cop happens to accidentally arrive in time to save her. Similar incidents ensue, testing Obie during his crusade against the "unindicted co-conspirators" amongst Charter's prominent citizens, even those in the police department.

About the Author

Mary Monica Pulver is an incidental Hoosier -- Terre Haute, Indiana, had the hospital closest to her parents' home in Marshall, Illinois. She spent the later part of her childhood and early adult life in Wisconsin, graduating from high school in Milwaukee. She was a journalist in the U.S. Navy for six and a half years (two in London), and later attended the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Mary Monica sold her first short story, "Pass the Word," to Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, in 1983, and has since sold more than two dozen short stories to anthologies and magazines, including some in Germany, England, Italy and France. She has appeared in such anthologies as The Mammoth Book of Historical Detectives, The Mammoth Book of Historical Whodunnits, The Mammoth Book of Historical Detectives, Shakespearean Mysteries, Royal Whodunnits, Unholy Orders, Murder Most Crafty, and Silence of the Loons. Her first mystery novel, Murder at the War, appeared from St. Martin's Press in 1987 and was nominated for an Anthony as Best First Novel. The Unforgiving Minutes and Ashes to Ashes followed in 1988; but Original Sin was sold to Walker, who also presented the fifth book, Show Stopper, in May of 1992. Berkley Diamond brought these mysteries out in paperback. They feature detective Peter Brichter - a cop one reviewer said was "a hardboiled sleuth who's somehow landed in a cozy mystery." In 1998 Mary Monica began writing a new series for Berkley featuring amateur needleworking sleuth Betsy Devonshire. Set in Excelsior, Minnesota, Crewel World came out in March and was followed by 18 other titles in the series. These light and traditional novels are written under the pseudonym Monica Ferris, and all have gone to multiple printings – the first one is in its thirteenth printing! Mary Monica has won a place on national and local best-seller lists, including USA Today and the independent mystery bookstore compilation. She is a member of Sisters in Crime (a national organization that promotes women who write mystery fiction), remains a paid speaker on the life of a mystery author.
