More About the Author

Mira Kolar-Brown was born and educated in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She came to the UK in 1977 and has considered it her home ever since. She worked as a tutor at two universities and as a project manager for an NGO and a QUANGO. Since early retirement, she's been working as a translator and interpreter for the public sector. That offers ample opportunity for research into the work of police, welfare system, courts, immigration and health services. Such first hand knowledge and experience are invaluable for writing mystery novels.

She lives in the north-west of England and has two grown-up daughters and two grandchildren.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex Sequel Exhilarating 27 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This sequel to HIDING THE ELEPHANT (Simon Grant Mysteries)is even better than the first and that was one great read.

Once again we are taken back to the England of the 1990s and also the 1960s in various flashbacks which only enhance the story and flesh out the characters and their motivations. This is another of Mira Kolar Brown's complex mysteries that is a joy to read, although it is not an easy task because of the complexities of the plot and the many diverse characters she introduces. I usually whip through a book in 2-3 days, but not this one. It took me over a week to read because I had to reread sections to keep the story straight in my head and to truly appreciate her many interesting characters.

Inspector Simon Grant is a complex man who is very moral and forthright on some fronts, but not in others. He is involved in an adulterous relationship with his wife Pippa's sister whom he has impregnated. Very spicy stuff.

Ms. Kolar Brown deftly deals with many issues in this novel, not to mention a double serial killing of two young women. The identity of the killer and the motives were a complete surprise to me.

This is a very good read and I hope Ms. Brown will be continuing with further adventures of Simon Grant.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gave up at 70% mark 9 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded the first book 'Hiding the Elephant' and this second book at the same time. I agree that the second book is far better than the first one but by that I mean that I gave up at the 70% mark rather than earlier. It didn't hold my attention and even although I kept reading hoping that it would get better eventually I ran out of patience and deleted it. I really, really tried to like this book espcially given the high ratings by prevous reviewers but it just didn't work for me, seemed to jump about a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Sophomore Slump 19 Feb. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Mira Kolar-Brown's second book, "Lock Up You Daughters", is, if anything, even better than her first, "Hiding the Elephant". HIDING THE ELEPHANT (Simon Grant Mysteries) But that's not to say that you should skip the second and plunge immediately into the first.
That would be a twofold mistake. First, because you'd be passing up a terrific book, and, second, because Mira reveals, in "Daughters", some things that remain unresolved and mysterious in "Elephant".
And, once you've been there, you can't go back.
Folks already familiar with Mira's work are going to be pleased to return to her England of the early nineties where they can, once again, catch up with Simon Grant.
Simon, for those of you who have yet to meet him, is a moral cop who leads a complicated personal life with his wife and the woman he loves.
And they are not the same person.
"Daughters" focuses on the murder of two women, separated by years in time, but whom we ultimately discover to have been victims of the same killer.
And both the identity of that killer, and the motive for the deeds, will surprise you.
At least, they did me.
This book, on Kindle, is an absolute steal. Buy it.
