Brooklyn Legacies

This fifth book in the “Erica Donato” series (after Brooklyn Wars) is fascinating primarily for the history of Brooklyn aspect. Erica is not a particularly endearing character, nor is she an astute detective—she acts before she thinks and fails to see evident facts. While this installment stands on its own, the series will attract Brooklynites and those interested in its history.

Brooklyn Wars: An Erica Donato Mystery

Readers who enjoyed Clea Simon's "Dulcie Schwartz" mysteries for the doctoral student aspects, or Mary Anna Evans's books involving history might enjoy this series.

Brooklyn Graves: An Erica Donato Mystery

Stein's second issues-oriented series entry (after Brooklyn Bones) is an enticing introduction to Brooklyn's immigrant history. This perfect tie-in with Susan Vreeland's historical novel, Clara and Mr. Tiffany, will also appeal to Kathleen Ernst and Joan Hess ("Claire Malloy" series) readers.

Brooklyn Bones

Reaching into Brooklyn's past, this series debut by the author of Murder at the Class Reunion and Digging Up Death is sure to please those who like a little local color in their mysteries. Family ties lie at the heart of this book, and the way they are woven into the mystery will be sure to surprise.
