Praise for The Maltese Manuscript... 'Dobson...takes the reader on a glorious tour, describing everything from comic books to anthologies. Even the most moral mystery fans will understand why a person would want to purloin even one or two of these treasures.' -Publishers Weekly 'There's no one better than Dobson at playing the politics of academe.' -Booklist In classic noir tradition, English Professor Karen Pelletier gains a client when a Rottweiler named Trouble and his famous private-eye-novelist owner walk through her door. The next thing you know, the Enfield library is missing a truckload of its treasures. Then a thief is found dead in the stacks, his neck broken. With a real private eye on the case, the hunt is on-for the manuscript of Hammett's famous novel, The Maltese Falcon; for the missing books; and for potential murder suspects. Joanne Dobson won an Agatha nomination for the first book in her Professor Karen Pelletier series, Quieter Than Sleep. For many years, Joanne was an English Professor at Fordham University, teaching literature and creative writing. Her scholarly research and writing focused on Emily Dickinson and on the popular fiction of 19th-century American women writers. She now writes full time and teaches creative writing at the Hudson Valley Writers Center. www.joannedobson.com
