    One thought on “Black Diamond”

    1. Zoe Kaplan accompanies fellow dorm mate Clare Swann to her aunt's house where her aunt's estate is being divided up. Clare is given a box that her aunt's will says is connected to Black Diamond. Then a body is found in Clare's dorm room. Anneke Hagan is supposed to be the main character in this series but this book was much more about Zoe and Clare than Anneke. I liked that the story tied into the logging history of Michigan.

    2. it's been quite a long time since i've read an Anneke Hagen mystery, so when i saw this on a list, i decided to check it out. There were quite a few surprises in this story - for example, the motive for the murder crept in from left field, although hints had been dropped. I like how Holtzer wove together the 19th and 20th century plots in a mostly non-intrusive way, although her decision to keep the 19th c parts realistic instead of romanticized led to those parts being rather brutal at points.

    3. I started reading this mystery series because the main character, Anneke Haagen, is a computer programmer, but there has been little of programming in the books so far. In fact, she's not even the main character in this book. That falls to Zoe Kaplan, an student reporter for the U. of Michigan paper, who was introduced in a previous book. A friend of hers finds her long-lost father dead in her dorm room, not long after she has inherited a mysterious box from her great-aunt, which box is now miss [...]

    4. Mystery at the University of Michigan. Undergraduate sports writer works with 50 year old computer consultant and her finanee, a police officer. Involves nineteenth century lumber industry and violence. Clever story, fun to read.

    5. Different, combines a historical account with a contemporary murder in Michigan.Uses Internet and lists sites.Pretty good.

    6. The local detail is probably fun for people who know Ann Arbor and the historical back story is interesting, but the mystery is pretty generic.
