HASH(0xa06db3a8) out of 5 stars DR Meredith's plots are getting better Feb. 4 2008
By A. C. Shellhase - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
My review of her last book in this series "Murder Past Due" wasn't too positive & I said I wasn't going to buy any more of this series. Then I found out I had already purchased the next two in the series. What to do, what to do? I read it.

Although I still do not like the characters of Megan & Ryan and think the other reading group characters are stereotypes, I think the plots are getting better.

While on a hike Megan's dogs uncover a skeleton & Megan finally gets to examine some bones. During the examination of what turns out to be a crime scene, she finds extra bones which leads her to conclude there is another skeleton close by.

The story switches back and forth so the reader gets background about both skeletons. I thought the juxtaposition of the stories surrounding the two corpses interesting. It kept things from being too linear and staid.

The members of the reading group are pretty much absent in this book. Perhaps that is why I liked this book so much better than the past ones. They were no more than a framework of supporting characters for the plot.

Berkeley Crime still needs to hire a copy editor. Again, there are typos, grammar mistakes, and punctuation errors here. I find these in every Berkeley Crime book I read. NOT the fault of the author, but it gets annoying and breaks the flow of the story.

In my opinion, this is the best book of the series. I have one more to go ...

HASH(0xa06db7d4) out of 5 stars Two for One Doesn't Appeal Dec 12 2005
By Lorraine Talbot - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've enjoyed the 3 earlier books in this series but this one was a disappointment. Megan, Ryan and the book club members go on a hike in a canyon and Megan's dogs dig up a body. While Megan is checking that out, another body, a mummy, is found.

The first corpse was murdered five years ago and the other 140 years ago.

Every couple of chapters of the book gives us another 10 pages or so of the lifestory of the mummified corpse. I was interested in what Megan could learn from her examination of the mummy (like an Elkin's Gideon Oliver mystery), but not the backstory of her life. Every time I came to a chapter set in 1868, I skipped it. It worked fine. The investigation by Megan & Ryan of the murder of the more recent corpse had many of the features of the earlier books, the humor, the characters, the denied romance of the couple because of their history, etc. The plot was a little thin and because about 60 pages were devoted to the mummy's story, it was a short read.

Maybe if I'd read this book first instead of 4th, I'd have had the patience to read the Commanche's story, but by this time, I only want to know what Megan, Ryan and the Murder by the Yard book club are up to.
HASH(0xa06db828) out of 5 stars Another great Megan Clark Mystery... July 25 2013

Megan Clark is a great character and continues to evolve with each book, as do the other regular characters. This book is actually two stories told concurrently. One is of the indian chief and the murder of his wife; the other is in the present day with Megan Clark and friends and the discovery of the body which is her specialty. It is a different approach and it is excellent. The alternating chapters make it easier to follow the progress of both characters. Another excellent book by Doris Meredith!

I like all of her books and all of her characters. I grew out thereabout. She stays true to the culture and landscape. And great mysteries also.
