Product Description

From Booklist

The award-winning Maron, creator of the Lieutenant Sigrid Harald and Judge Deborah Knott series, is also the author of an impressive assortment of short fiction, much of which is collected here. Maron's concern with the dynamics of time, place, and relationships is especially evident in these stories about how people try to deal with situations that may be beyond their control. A hit man trying to escape from the Mob is not as clever as he thinks he is. A family croquet match turns out to be much more than a game, and a stupid pet trick reveals sordid events. Some of the stories feature Deborah Knot and her Colleton County, North Carolina, home. Sigrid Harald doesn't appear, but Roman Tramegra, a supporting character from the Harald novels, stars in one story set in Venice. Most of the stories have been published elsewhere, but two are new. Maron has written an introduction to the collection as well as a brief preface to each story. Barbara Bibel

I'm a big fan of the Deborah Knott series, so thought I would read something else from her. I was not disappointed! Easy reads. Would make a nice gift.

As usual, Margaret Maron has done a splendid job. I would like to see more mysteries featuring Judge Knott in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short Mystery Pleasures July 26 2011
By Nash Black - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm not a real fan of short stories though I both read and write them. Margaret Maron's SUITABLE FOR HANGING is an outstanding collection from "The Early Retirement of Mario Colletti" to "The Dog That Didn't Bark."
She teaches the rest of us how to do it teaches the rest of us how to do it with the less than 300 words "Devil's Island."
This is a great book to have in the pocket of your easy chair to enjoy with a refreshing cup of tea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stories! April 18 2010
By Susan A. Titus - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Margaret Maron has a wonderful voice that these stories show as much as her Deborah Knott series shows. The stories are about relationships, and in the voice of the south. I mean the south that that includes "newcomers" as well as people who have lived through the changes brought about by the civil rights activities and laws of the late 20th century. She is an author which brings joy, and pain and self reflection as well as a good mystery!!
