It's saying a lot for a librarian to say she's bought every mystery that an author wrote. I've bought every one that Lee Harris has written, in both her Christine Bennett series and her new Manhattan Mystery series. Although I love every one about Christine Bennett, the nun who left the convent, married, has a son, and solves old mysteries, the Manhattan Mysteries are even better. Murder in Hell's Kitchen was the first one, followed by Murder in Alphabet City.
Jane Bauer is a detective with the NYPD who has been assigned to a cold case squad. In the current mystery, a schizophrenic was found dead in his apartment eight years earlier. His wealthy sister never accepted that he starved himself to death, and she pulls strings to have the case reopened. As Bauer's small group of detectives investigate, they uncover a suicide that connects with their case, and they know there is more to be discovered.
Harris writes about interesting women who are more than stock characters. She tells a thoughtful story that involves the reader as it unwinds.
