Looking for a great mystery series? Then check out James Ziskin's excellent books featuring Ellie Stone: 1) Styx and Stone, 2) No Stone Unturned, and 3) Stone Cold Dead. I just finished tearing through all three and think they are terrific.
The books are set at the start of the1960s. The protagonist is single, in her early 20s, and working for a small town newspaper in New York. The stories are a bit gritty: People are bashed on the head; they live hidden lives; Ellie consumes more scotch than seems prudent. All together, the noir-style novels are suspenseful and entertaining.
Ziskin has a fourth book coming out in June and I'm really looking forward to reading it!
