Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!

Today is a day when we celebrate those who labor, and also those who’ve stood up for the rights of those who labor, and in honor of that, I thought some Labor Day mysteries might be in order. So if you’re interested in murder and the labor movement, here are some suggestions:  1. Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett. When the last honest man in a mining town known as Poisonville is murdered, the Continental Op goes in to take on the whole town. 2. For the Love of Mike by Rhys Bowen, in which Molly Murphy has to go undercover in the garment business. 3.  A More Perfect Union by J.A. Jance, in which Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont. investigates a murder involving a union. (Possibly not an incredibly pro-union book.) 4. A Red Death by Walter Mosley, in which Easy Rawlins has to spy on a supposed Communist organizer. Also, I’m happy to report that the Miss Demeanors have been honored by making Feedspot’s list of the Top 100 Mystery Book Blogs and Websites for  Mystery Readers & Authors. We are number 18 and are in some very good company. You can check it out at: https://blog.feedspot.com/mystery_book_blogs/
