"Both entertaining and unexpectedly touching. More Please." -- -- Baltimore Sun
Reporter-turned-p.i. Tess Monaghan loves every inch of her native Baltimore—a quirky city where baseball reigns, and homicide seems to be the second most popular sport. Business tycoon “Wink” Wynkowski wants to change all of that by bringing pro-basketball back to town—a laudable mission that’s greeted with widespread cheers . . . and a muckraking front page exposé of his past in the Baltimore Beacon-Light. The “Blight’s” surprised editors are sure they killed the piece. Instead, the piece kills Wynkowski, who’s discovered asphyxiated in his garage with his car’s engine running. Now the paper wants former newshound Tess to track down the rogue computer hacker whose prank took a human life. But there’s more than cyber-crime involved here—and Tess is about to discover firsthand that trying to stay alive in Charm City is murder these days.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Charm City tells a story that moves and engages your attention. There are good (and bad) characters, an intricate plot, and an only-in-Baltimore subplot. Read morePublished on Jan. 27 2000 by Harriet and the Mystery Book Discussion Group
... but nothing special. It sort of reads like a first draft. There are plotholes and inconsistent things that should have been caught and fixed. Read morePublished on Dec 6 1998
