I glanced at the computer printout that rested on the passenger seat of the rental car, a casual picture of a grandmother and granddaughter, arms linked, faces aglow with laughter and love. Read the first page

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Henrie O receives a frantic transatlantic call from her dear friend who cannot contact her granddaughter Iris in San Antonio. Henrie is visiting her daughter in Texas and agrees to drive to San Antonio to try to find the missing girl. When she does, she becomes acquainted with the Garza family who owns the store where Iris has been working. She is convinced that someone in the family is connected with the disappearance. Soon there is a murder and a theft to add to the intrigue. Henrie O does some behind-the-scenes investigating in order to piece the puzzle together. The setting of the River Walk is a brilliant one and Hart's descriptions of San Antonio are vibrant and very accurate. There are a few unlikely scenarios, such as a thief letting Henrie O take a very valuable valise full of goods, and the way Henrie O decides to trap the murderer in the end, but this still remains a good read for Hart fans.

Carolyn Hart has delivered another fun addition to her Henrie O series. Ms. Hart has developed a wonderful character in her protagonist. There is something warm and inviting with Henrie O, kind of like a grandmother. The author has also developed her to be smart, brave and very observant. This makes for a very enjoyable series. Unlike Ms. Hart's Death of Demand series, this one is a bit more on the serious side, but not so much so that there is not funny moments. Also, Henrie gets to travel around to different locations. With this Ms. Hart adds the pleasure of regional interest into the story. This book is located in San Antonio, so the reader get all kinds of interesting facts about that great city and it's culture. Believe it or not, San Antonio has more going for it than the Alamo! Add all this together with Ms. Hart's good solid writing and the reader can be guaranteed a good and fun mystery. I would recommend any of Carolyn Hart's books to any one who enjoys a good mystery.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Carolyn Hart's "Death on the River Walk" is a thoroughly absorbing mystery offering tantalizing glimpses of San Antonio's River Walk. Among Ms. Hart's many strengths as a writer is the ability to make her readers part of the scene. One sees "sunlight striking through shifting cottonwood leaves, making filagree patterns on ... stone walks", one feels "soft, moist night air", and taste buds go into overdrive when she describes scrumptious dishes such as nachos with shrimp and black beans, or chalupas topped with a meat-and corn mixture ... Henrie O, a refreshingly mature heroine with a refreshingly contemporary outlook, is asked to look into the disppearance of her best friend's granddaughter. The trail leads her to Tesoros (Treasures), a River Walk gallery dealing primarily in Mexican art and antiquities. Ms. Hart shines in her knowledge and description of pieces such as pulque pitchers, Tlaquepaque style glazed pottery, Talavera tiles and Oaxacan carved, wooden animals. The Garza family, who has owned and run Tesoros for forty years, has an unassailable reputation in the art world. Why, then, are there hints of discord among its members? Is there a connection with the family to the theft of gold antiquities stolen from Mexico City's National Museum of Anthropology? "Death on the River Walk" is tightly plotted, beautifully written, and a credit to this award winning author.

Murder on the River Walk has a great setting, an okay plot July 24 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The best thing about the mystery is the setting, the San Antonio riverwalk and environs, the descriptions of the Mexican artwork available in the shops there. The plot is a little unbelievable ... the hunters of antiquities and the art collectors are compared to the Spanish conquistadors...

A Crashing Bore July 16 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I loved the other Henrie O mysteries, and looked forward to this one. I'm irked. It doesn't even merit shelf space in my home--I'll donate it to the local library. There is no action to speak of for the first 100 pages. Instead we are subjected to incredibly tedious discussions of how a store functions. I think Hart describes every piece of art in the entire inventory by the time she reaches her conclusion. The initial mystery of whether a certain person has or has not disappeared seemed contrived and left me unmoved. Plus, it seemed implausible that the store proprietors would allow Henrie O to be constantly and everywhere underfoot while they were preparing for their biggest sale day of the year. Worse, the Garza family never came to life for me: I had difficulty remembering which person had been assigned which characteristics. Only two characters in the whole book had distinct and memorable personalities. From Dead Man's Island to this?
