Mary Daheim's wonderful world of Hillside Manor is zany, engrossing, and positively addicting! In Suture Self, Judith McMonigle Flynn is scheduled for a hip replacement. Instead of looking ahead to her new mobility, she's worried. "Routine surgery" recently cost a local actress and a star baseball pitcher their lives. Though Judith smells malice, she successfully survives her operation-but another patient isn't so lucky. Stuck in this chamber of Hippocratic horrors, Judith feels compelled to get to the bottom of what could be the worst malpractice case ever recorded or perhaps something much more sinister. The worst diagnosis of all is the one that suggests Judith's curiosity is terminal and that a killer is saving a last lethal dose of medicine for her.

"SUTURE SELF is a quirky contribution to the author's bed-and-breakfast mystery series, in which heroine Judith Flynn once again finds herself the unwitting sleuth unraveling a murder. Flynn and her sidekick cousin are cooped up in a shared hospital room following simultaneous surgeries, and that's just the first implausible coincidence found in this novel. Anna Fields performs a top-notch interpretation; she presents this quirky tale with precise yet soothing diction that immerses the listener in the events, ensuring that the story is not superseded by the reading. However, her exaggerated dialects of some characters are distracting, and the two main characters are sometimes indistinguishable by voice alone. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
