Much Murder and Mayhem
Gioya McRae, in her first venture into mystery writing, has put together a book, MOSTLY MURDER, of short stories involving murder and mayhem. Pretty Young Thing is the hilarious story of an abused woman who fights back. Insult & Injury also has its amusing moments as a married couple show their love for each other and Detective Brimley must solve the mystery of who finally hurt them. My favorite is Mini Murders, again with Detective Brimley. The detective must find out who is killing babies, leaving them dressed strangely and hidden in weird locations. Is he correct in his assumptions about the murderer? The tension is heavy throughout the entire story.
McRae has done an excellent job in her first attempt as a mystery writer. She has a vivid imagination and her characters are well defined even though some of the stories are quite short. It was a very enjoyable read and I would love to see her continue in this genre.

Every story in this book is worth reading. Ms. McRae states in the introduction that most writers of color feel pigeon-holed into writing about social issues or politics. She wanted to give them a new voice and she has succeeded. Murder, romance, and just a little bit of the weird-- it's all here in "Mostly Murder."
