Dead Write (Claudia Rose) by Sheila Lowe
Forensic handwriting analyst Claudia Rose is hired by N.Y. matchmaker Grusha Olinetsky to analyse the writing of several of her clients. She discovers several clients died mysterious deaths, though the police writes them off as accidents. Compelled to investigate she finds herself in grave danger.
The forensics are fascinating... I wasn't very familiar with handwriting analysts and the details Sheila serves up are very interesting. The mystery itself is satisfying, although a bit slow at times. Luckily enough surprises turn up at just the right times to keep your interest.
Claudia Rose is a likable, 'real' protagonist with as is revealed tragic past. I'm looking forward to meeting her again.
