Very Enjoyable Reading

P.M. Carlson is always literate and witty. Her creation of Maggie Ryan is a fantasy creature, a sort of female Lord Peter Wimsey with an 1960's-70's touch. The first book in the series, _Audition for Murder_ showed us Maggie Ryan in college. This final book in the series has Maggie married and meeting for the first time the daughter she had to give up for adoption 16 years ago.I like this novel because in addition to the mystery it has vivid, interesting characters, great dialogue and psychological insight. I enjoy the literary allusions and wordgames that are sprinkled throughout the Maggie Ryans series (and miss them in the author's Marty Hopkins series).I am moved to write this review by the fact that the excellent Maggie Ryan series by P.M. Carlson seems to have gone out of print. I wish readers would seek out these books and inspire publishers to bring them back in print. It would be nice if P.M. Carlson would write more Maggie Ryan novels also.
