Title: Blanche on the Lam
Author: Barbara Neely
Stars: 5 Out of 5
This book is part of the Blanche White mystery series. I find this series to be intriguing, well written and educational. It gives the reader a very different look at racism as seen by a black individual. While I am not black I find myself able to better understand where she is coming from as a writer. I would recommend this series to anyone who is seeking a great mystery with a highly unusual and caring heroine.
I gave this book a five star rating and look forward to reading other books by this author.
I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.
Blanche White lends a refreshing African-American, female twist to the mystery tradition, as she turns from domestic worker to insightful--if reluctant--sleuth. A middle-aged housekeeper with a strong sense of humor, Blanche becomes an unlikely yet ingenious sleuth when murder disrupts the wealthy household of her employers.
