'HOT STONES, COLD DEATH was a fantastic read! I really enjoyed the suspense and getting to know the charcters' foibles and special interests. The pace was fast with enough twists and turns to keep the reader engrossed. Great book! Great mystery! Can't wait to have some of my friends read it so we can talk about it.'

Mrs. Fleming's publisher sent In the Company of My Sistah bookclub a copy to read and review. I finally go around to it. I enjoyed the novel soo much, I wonder why I waited. It opens with a bang!. Two bodies in the Smithsonian, WOW. Excellent writing. A good story line. A great whodunit. The characters were believable. The portrayal of the bureaucrats and their actions and reactions were so on target. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I am definitely recommending my bookclub and others read this mystery.

I am normally not a fan of mystery novels, but Hot Stones Cold Death is not your average mystery. Barbara Fleming has written a wonderful book full of twists and turns that keeps you guessing until the end. Honestly, once I started reading this book I could not put it down! I truly enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the next installment in the Matthew Alexander series. Barbara Fleming is one of the few great writers of our time.

This mystery novel held my attention throughout the book. Barbara Fleming has a way of getting the reader involved by planting various clues to follow. It was the first novel I have read by her, but it will not be the last.

"Barbara Fleming's Hot Stones Cold Death is an outstanding mystery novel featuring Lieutenant Matthew Alexander, a homicide detective who must follow the theft of a prized necklace from the Smithsonian's gem collection and identify a ruthless murderer. Faced with walls of stony denial and mistrust, Matthew Alexander must navigate uncooperative witnesses and mounting danger to uncover the crux of the matter before it's too late. Hot Stones Cold Death is a deftly written, thoroughly exciting, cover-to-cover, pulse-pounding thriller of a read." MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW, INTERNET BOOKWATCH, OCTOBER, 2002.
