Fugitive Colors by Margaret Maron Ah, so satisfying reading Margaret Maron's FUGITIVE COLORS! The twisty plot and interesting characters are enhanced by wisdom, recovery from grief to go on living and loving, and letting go of vengefulness to avoid poisoning one’s life. Speaking of poison, the quotes on art techniques, which made me think of artist/storyteller Mel Davenport, were lovely glimpses of centuries-old art techniques, but I’d pass on mending broken dishes with a mixture containing white lead. I grimaced a bit at advice to use rose water for plaster casts of very important persons, but any water is “good enough” for other people. There is much of the atmosphere and contrasts of New York City and insights into the art world* to savor, as well as clever turns of phrase. I hadn’t though of Union Maid as a pun, but now I do, and when Roman has a “bottle in front of him” my mind conjured up Alan Alda quoting Groucho Marx’s preference for that rather “than a frontal lobotomy.” There is soon to be another in this remarkable series. I can hardly wait! * “. . . art . . . mattered enough to make almost any sacrifice worthwhile.”

This was a truly unique mystery series. The books were written over the space of 14 years, but they actually cover 1 tumultuous year in the life of the lead detective. I enjoyed all 8 books; although, I found #6 a bit long-winded at times. It took me about 4 chapters to get into #1, but, once I did, I found myself drawn to the quirky, and very human, lead detective as well as the well-drawn supporting cast of characters. I found myself wanting to keep reading the next book in the series. Also, the mysteries themselves are nicely challenging.
