This title is in the middle of a series. They stand alone but it is better to read them in order. They are about mysteries solved by a Quebec head of the Surete du Quebec (need accents), but they are about so much more. An excellent author. Plot, characters, life! I read them all and every one was hard to put down.

So if you like mysteries...

The second in a series, starting with "Crystal Singer".

Anne McCaffrey is an excellent writer with a brilliant imagination.

Yes and the title of "I,Robot" finishes with a letter "T" and " Thank You Jeeves" starts with a letter "T" I fail to see your point.
Except I failed to write Pelham Grenvilles Wodehouses name, despite the fact it is clearly seen in the image of the books dust jacket?
A slight oversight on my behalf.

Schlook, It looks like Sarrriesfan entered a proper title. Fortunately, both of your responses end in 'S' :D

Hi Alice - you like China Miéville?
I thought Embassytown was amazing. Brilliant imagination and sense of detail, even in the most complex scenarios.
He says his genre isn't SF, it's 'weird fiction'.
