Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Series Detective Chief Inspector Webb matches wits and crime theories with amateur criminologist Fred Mace. This British cozy focuses on what appears to be a copycat of a murder that originally took place six years ago in Webb's hometown. Mace's theory is that crimes are the result of someone breaking one of the Ten Commandments, and he works at solving the mystery from that perspective. Fraser deftly intertwines Mace's amateur detecting with that of Webb's staff, dropping red herrings into a somewhat contrived tale. David Graham's narration adds color to the distinctly British cast. Recommended where British mysteries are popular.--Sandy Glover, West Linn P.L., OR
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Newman has compiled over 2500 quotations from 500 individuals. Derived from the 18th century to the current day, these statements deal with myriad topics related not only to the black cultural experience, but also to the many vagaries of life. The quotes are arranged by subject, e.g., "Adolescence," "Black Pride," "Education," "Values," "Women," "Words to Live By." A brief introduction emphasizes the influence of the oral tradition and music on black speech and use of language. The sheer diversity of contributors and ideas ensures a wide audience and plenty of food for thought. Each quote is attributed to the person who expressed it but the original source is not documented. The name, subject, and occupation indexes make this a thorough reference tool for any library.-Janet Woodward, Garfield High School, Seattle, WA

Entries are arranged alphabetically by subject, including the arts, community, education, future, humanity, ideas, music, and women. Three indexes are arranged by author name, subject, and occupation. Newman is with the W.E.B. DuBois Institute for Afro-American Research at Harvard University. Annotation c.

    African American Quotations by Richard Newman

    This is an excellent book of African American quotations. This book contains quotations from contemporary African Americans, and African Americans from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, some of whom I have never heard of. This book even has quotations from Gandhi and Julius Caesar!

    The quotations are all very relevant not only to African Americans, but can also be enjoyed by all people interested in great quotations. I was very moved by this book and highly recommend it.
