4.0 out of 5 stars There is a sort of euphoria if you burn your bridges, Dec 15 2003

Hams are relevant to delis and lawyers. A lawyer appears under a rack of hams. Robert Stonecipher has made a nuisance of himself in the community trying to shut down people's businesses. Two mothers, Shelley and Jane, are bored with Cub Scouts and school awards assemblies and decide to team up to thwart Robert Stonecipher. Everyone shows up for the opening of a new deli and, as previously mentioned, Stonecipher is discovered under a rack of hams.
Under the circumstances nearly everyone in the community is a suspect until it is learned that Stonecipher died of natural causes. Next his secretary departs life and her death renews the efforts of the police officer, Mel, Jane's friend, to trace the possiblity that some people were being blackmailed by the pair. The solution to the mystery is of the psychological kind and is well done. The women, Jane and Shelley, along with Jane's son Mike, and Mel are delightfully rendered by the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fluffy, but fun, Feb. 19 2000

Jill Churchill never disappoints. Silence of the Hams continues the enjoyable Jane Jeffries series with Jane and Shelly investigating yet another murder in the wilds of suburbia. If you are looking for enduring literature, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a fun read, this is the right place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, entertaining, absorbing, well written!, Oct. 20 1997

Jane Jeffry, much beloved single mom and solver murder cases, takes time off from domestic chores and car pool duties, to probe yet another puzzling murder case. A much disliked neighborhood political figure is found dead under a pile of hams in the storeroom of a newly opened restaurant. And found by none other than our beloved Jane Jeffry! Clever yet endearingly klutzy, pretty yet never chic, Jane is never boring. Churchill has another winner here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Homemaker solves more than what's for dinner!, Aug. 10 1996
By A Customer
Jill Churchill's newest novel, starring the wonderful Jane Jeffry,
is a wonderful way to take your mind off the humdrum and mundane
happenings of everyday life.
In this installment in the series, Jane and her best friend
Shelley, solve the murder of a more-than-normally hated attorney
at the opening of the town's newest business.
A wonderful whodunnit, the mystery tends to take a backseat to the
happenings of two friends who thoroughly enjoy each other's company.
The happenings in Jane's and Shelley's life, and those around them,
make for some outstanding reading and a lot of laughs. This book
is well written, easy to fly through and a perfect addition to
any collection. Mike Morris
