    1. Tyler Jones is not the most social person in the world, so when she wins the Pulitzer Prize for journalism for a feature story about spousal abuse committed by members of the police force, she goes into semi-retirement, writing her newspaper columns from home. Because of her urgent concern about violence against women, she also spends time at a crisis center. But although her research and counseling brings her into contact with many forms of violence, her own life is rather uninteresting and pre [...]

    2. Murder mysteries are not really my style, but I picked this up for the promise of a lesbian feminist protagonist. Plus, the blurb spilled the fact that the murder victim was a man, sealing the deal. (Last thing I need is to spend my free time reading gruesome stories of murdered women.) And The Other Side of Silence ending up being just what I was looking for: a fast-paced story, suspenseful but not so scary I couldn't read it at home by myself, woven with a healthy, lesbian feminist consciousne [...]

    3. This was a Half Price Book clearance shelf find. It sounded interesting, and it is, but the ending was terrible. They never really say who actually committed the crime. It's all speculation and there is no "wrap up" or anything. It's hard to explain but I was really disappointed. This one goes in the "donate" bag.

    4. I can't remember if I read this book in June or July of this year (2015) and can't remember much about it except it is a mystery with female characters. I wanted so much to like it because it is Joan Drury of Drury Lane and the Drury Lane Bookstore in Grand Marais but not being able to remember much pretty much says it all.

    5. Lesbian feminist mystery set in San Francisco. Boldly mixes individual tales of domestic violence with a murder mystery. Well done.

    6. After reading the final paragraph and pondering what felt like an abrupt end, I wasn't sure whether the book would be considered genre fiction (mystery) or just fiction-with-a-social-message. I had been operating under the expectation that the murder discovered in the opening chapter, the one that drives the plot forward for over 200 pages, would be explained and another whodunnit would be solved. Instead it seems the author's idea was to replace a crucial explanation scene at the end with one t [...]
