Silver Scream

A Bed-and-Breakfast Mystery with Judith McMonigle Flynn by Mary Daheim

Silver Scream by Mary Daheim

Review: Silver Scream is the 18th entry in this mystery series by Mary Daheim featuring bed-and-breakfast owner Judith McMonigle.

This long-running series has had its ups-and-downs, but Silver Scream is one of the better of the more recent books. Maybe it's just that Hollywood stereotypes are so easy to incorporate into characters, and Daheim does a fine job with them all. Adding a mysterious element to the foggy Pacific Northwest locale is setting the mystery at Halloween; one is never quite sure if the guests are wearing metaphorical masks or not. In the end, Daheim brings the murder mystery to a satisfactory, if somewhat unexpected, conclusion.

Long-time readers of the series will enjoy this latest bed-and-breakfast mystery, and new readers will no doubt want to pick up one of the earlier entries.
