"A first-rate debut mystery. Clean writing and well-drawn characters mix with a fine plot to hold the reader's interest to the end." (Library Journal)

"Appealing... especially in the way that Fanning develops the Texas setting as a character of its own." (Booklist)

    "Excellent plot disappointing heroine"
    Would you try another book from Diane Fanning and/or Flora Plumb?

    would probably try again.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Good plot


    Could you see Bite the Moon being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes but the hero must not be so lacking in insight.


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent plot with lots of potential, but why is the heroine frequently so plane stupid. eg what sort of a detective would invite a known murderer to her house and refuse backup, or march unarmed outside when she suspects the baddies are in the garden. She is lucky she has friends in the police force.
    The patient rush out of hospital was far fetched and could have been handled differently. Try again. A woman does not have to be a Jack Reacher type, but she can be very effective by using her brains.
