Austin Chronicle review of 'Bellringer'
The Austin Chronicle is out with a nice review of Bellringer by J. Robert Janes.
Bellringer is a slight departure in the series (the first 12 titles of which have just been re-released as eBooks from MysteriousPress.com). Imagine a Gosford Park-type murder mystery of an elegant estate where all the possible suspects are under one roof. The location is Vittel, a town where the wealthiest members of French society formerly flocked for R&R. But this is no summer vacation: It's the winter of 1943, and two of the most luxurious resorts in town have been transformed into internment camps for British and American women who got stuck in France as the Nazi army invaded. In this elegant hell, the residents have been making do with Red Cross aid for the past two years, but now they're on thin ice, dying off just like the common folk.
