Suitable for Hanging Review 9 Jan. 2007
By Dale Reichard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As usual, Margaret Maron has done a splendid job. I would like to see more mysteries featuring Judge Knott in the future.

Short Mystery Pleasures 27 July 2011
By Nash Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm not a real fan of short stories though I both read and write them. Margaret Maron's SUITABLE FOR HANGING is an outstanding collection from "The Early Retirement of Mario Colletti" to "The Dog That Didn't Bark."
She teaches the rest of us how to do it teaches the rest of us how to do it with the less than 300 words "Devil's Island."
This is a great book to have in the pocket of your easy chair to enjoy with a refreshing cup of tea.

Wonderful stories! 18 April 2010
By Susan A. Titus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Margaret Maron has a wonderful voice that these stories show as much as her Deborah Knott series shows. The stories are about relationships, and in the voice of the south. I mean the south that that includes "newcomers" as well as people who have lived through the changes brought about by the civil rights activities and laws of the late 20th century. She is an author which brings joy, and pain and self reflection as well as a good mystery!!
Interesting insights on developing characters 29 Jun. 2011
By Robin S. Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These early short stories from Margaret Maron are a compulsive lead, some ranging far from her character-based crime novels. Particularly intriguing is a one-page story, written as an attempt to create a short story in less than 500 words. Early Deborah Knott stories are an interesting addition to the canon of work on this character.

A small niggle - proof-reading has obviously been a bit rushed - there are too many typos (including one on the front cover!)
Excellent samples of Margaret Maron's stories 6 Feb. 2014
By Rosie Place - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great way to sample work by Margaret Maron, if you have not read her before. The book is a collection of short stories, so you can read one, or several at a time. These stories are a special treat for those who have history in, or affection for the South, or North Carolina in particular.
