Book Description

May 1 1997
Thirty-seven year old journalist, Connor Westphal, has relocated from San Francisco to Flat Skunk, a mining-turned-tourist town in the foothills of the Sierras, to start up her own weekly paper. Suddenly, dead bodies begin turning up in the most unusual places, setting Connor on a hunt for a killer. You might say Connor has a sixth sense when it comes to investigating...but she only has four of the usual five senses. Connor Westphal is deaf. But being hearing impaired doesn't stop Connor from pursuing the murderer. Without sound to distract her, she attends to subtleties that others overlook and ultimately unravels the mystery.

From the Paperback edition.

Really liked the strong main character, a woman who just happens to be deaf. Didn't like typos and other errors. Distracting!

5.0 out of 5 stars funny, entertaining and accurate Jan. 2 2000
As a deaf person, I was hesitant to pick up this book because many books written about deaf individuals are inaccurate. However, this book is a very accurate portrayal of a deaf character. Not only that, Conor is a funny, gutsy and likeable character. The book ended much too soon for me and I'm off to buy her other 3 books now!

It was a wonderful surprise to discover Dead Body Language when it first came out, because we finally see a main deaf character. Reading this book, the author really gives the reader a glimpse of what it is like to be deaf. I liked the scene where Connor Westphal was trying to lipread Lacy Penzance. The plot was great and kept me guessing until the very end!
