Editorial Reviews

Tami Brady
Malpractice: A Baltimore Historical Mystery is an onion of detail. The reader starts out with the very interesting character of Bertram and then gets into the actual mystery. It seems that with every interview and with every new piece of information that the detective gleams that the story becomes deeper and multileveled.
John Reviewer
Titchener is a practiced writer with some 40 novels to her credit and she doesn't bog the narrative down with unnecessary detail. But, there is enough to satisfy the discriminating reader and provide the ambiance of a city she obviously loves. I soon identified the real villain, though that didn't prevent me from wanting to read on. My only regret is that the novel was not longer. This was not the first of the Redcastle novels and I, for one, hope it will not be the last. 5 beacons.
