When Death of a Butterfly, my second Sigrid Harald novel, was written in 1984, smoking was more widespread and allowed not only in parks but in most buildings and all restaurants.

Original publication in 1984. All characters in this book are fictitious. When Death of a Butterfly, my second Sigrid Harald novel, was written in 1984, smoking was more widespread and allowed not only in parks but in most buildings and all restaurants. There were no digital cameras, mobile phones were still uncommon, and women were more sensitive to instances of male chauvinism. Without ultrasound, few expectant parents knew the sex of their baby before it was born and older people still lifted an eyebrow at out-of-wedlock babies.

Death of a Butterfly is an excellent read!!! . Margaret Maron is in my top 5 authors of mysteries. Her characters are solid and believable. I'd read the Sigrid Harald books many many years ago and loved them and then came the Deborah Knott books.

Death of a Butterfly is an excellent read!!! I particularly like th e fact that it is "not modern. I like her plots and her characters and backstories.

This book has plenty of suspense and the characters are well done. Death of a Butterfly (Sigrid Harald).

New York City Police Detective Sigrid Harald knew something was amiss when she saw the couple. This book has plenty of suspense and the characters are well done. One of Ms. Maron's strengths is the believability of her characters. As usual, the interplay between Dwight and Deborah is wonderfully romantic even in the midst of a murder. I have to say that I will be glad to see them back home in the next book.

Second in the Sigrid Harald series. This book, Death of a Butterfly was an enjoyable read with characters that acted like real people and had names that didn't blur into confusion. Lt.

It was not high tension like Patricia Cornwall but a cleverly crafted mystery and glimpse of human foibles, besides. Death Of A Butterfly.

New York City Police Lieutenant Sigrid Harald finds herself investigating a case involving blackmail, half a million dollars worth of stolen jewels, and murder
  • This mystery, set in Manhattan, has a New York flavor that I enjoyed.

    woman is murdered in her apartment. Julie Redman was not a nice person. Several people are made happy by her death. The trouble is, none of them could have committed the crime. They were all somewhere else. Looking into their alibis and assessing their motivation and character keeps Lieutenant Sigrid Harald and her team busy.

    This is an absorbing police procedural. But more than anything it's Sigrid's complex personality that keeps me following the series. She's a woman unaware of her own attractions. Her demeanor on the job is icy, and in general she's not warm and fussy. She’s uncomfortable with children and awkward around even friendly people. She has an interesting relationship with a much older man, and I've ordered the next book hoping to see where this goes.

    There's nothing flashy or kinky about this series so far, but Margaret Maron tells a solid, entertaining story. I find her characters and her plots appealing.

  • Death of a Butterfly is an excellent read!!! I particularly like th e fact that it is "not modern." The setting is New York before cell phones and internet and DNA. It is just good, old-fashioned detective work

  • Having read and enjoyed all of Margaret Maron's "Deborah Knott" books, I wanted to "meet" her earlier protagonist, Sigrid Harald. Although I had guessed "whodunit" and why, I nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed this, her second Sigrid book. I look forward to more...I hope they are still available!

  • Margaret Maron is in my top 5 authors of mysteries. Her characters are solid and believable. I'd read the Sigrid Harald books many many years ago and loved them and then came the Deborah Knott books. I like her plots and her characters and backstories. I think I'm reviewing Margaret Maron here more than the single book. I'd suggest that you start with her first and move in chronological order. Each, of course, can stand on its own but it is more fun and rewarding to read them in order. Try her....you'll like her.

  • Enjoyed the background knowledge necessary for the story. Her characters are believable and well placed into each story. I liked this puzzle.

  • This is one of several Margaret Maron's NY Detective Sigrid Harald books I have read. I started with the first and continued down the list. I found that each one gets better than the last. The story held my interest and, since I read in bed, kept me up past my bedtime. The characters are great and I can never figure out "who dunnit". Even though this was written years ago, it's still a page-turner. Enjoyed reading this book and so will you.

  • I've read the Deborah Knott series and am working my way through Sigrid Herald. LOVE this series!

  • Received book in great brand new condition, in a timely manner. Really enjoyed the book. Glad to be able to read this series from book #1. Enjoying Sigrid!!! Love Margaret Maron's books.
