Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The proprietor of Oaxaca's Casa Colonial hotel, sensible, matronly Do$a Milly, finds herself on the case of several recent murders, including that of a wealthy-looking person whose corpse showed up in her Zapotec neighbors' cornfield. The Dog on the Roof: A Casa Colonial Mystery, Mary Madsen Hallock's lighthearted debut, features an assortment of temperamental tourists, Zapotec farmers and Mexico City gangsters trying to coerce those farmers to grow marijuana. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Dona Milly, a visually handicapped but enterprising older widow who runs a small hotel in Oaxaca, Mexico, joins forces with her gardener and a Zapotec family in a nearby village to thwart the designs of an evil "giant." Said giant, actually a large man with purple shoelaces who forces villagers to plant marijuana amidst their corn, has killed at least two people, leaving their bodies in the cornfield of Milly's friends. A moderately involving tale of the little man against the bad guy, with tinges of local folklore, tourist idiosyncrasies, and rural surrounds, this is suited for larger collections.

    A Cultural Whammy

    I was delighted and entertained by this light, yet culturally packed book. Quite provocative. Ms Hallock takes you on a ride that includes interesting characters who must deal in a world in which the help they should be able to count on, is as dangerous as the horrible situation which presents itself. Thus, these folks are forced to use their own wits and rely on one another. It is obvious that Ms. Hallock understands the Zapotec people. Their lives are much different from the more classical Mexican population, much more impoverished. But they are just as proud and insistant upon making a good life for themselves and their children, even when faced with murder and mayham. The book has mystery, fun, and for me a facinating insight into a part of the world and a people, who, in dealing with life "in the raw," show humor and ingenuity. They taught me much and set me to thinking of how I would have responded under the same circumstances. The main character is an American woman, kind but determined, snappy but introspective. I look forward to her, and her compatriot's, next adventure!
