A Great Ann Arbor Mystery

Folks who grew up in Los Angelos or New York City probably don't get all that thrilled when they read a book set in their home town, but having grown up in Ann Arbor, I'm less jaded. Susan Holtzer's prize-winning first book is packed with local color, and feels like a genuine Ann Arbor story, but it offers much more than that. The Ann Arbor setting gives it some uniqueness, but it gains much more from being set on the summer garage sale circuit. And it's a fun little mystery in it's own right, something no local mystery fan should miss.

There are many sequels, which are worth reading, but their focus shifts a little from town to gown. I guess someone thought that they could be marketed to U of M alumni.

Start of alively series with lots of local Ann Arbor color

This is the first in Susan Holtzer's mystery series set in Ann Arbor. We meet the sleuth, Anneke Haagen, a serious amateur collector of Art Deco. Haagen moves gracefully through the world of garage sales and frequents the Treasure Mart, until the day she stumbles upon a friend, mortally injured, who utters a few ambiguous last words.
