Sneaky Pie Brown, a tiger cat born somewhere in Albemarle County, Virginia, was discovered by Rita Mae Brown at her local SPCA. They have collaborated on numerous Mrs. Murphy mysteries-in addition to Sneaky Pie’s Cookbook for Mystery Lovers and Sneaky Pie for President. While the storyline taking place in the 1700’s is interesting I would prefer, and would purchase, a separate book for the story. I miss all the old familiar characters, human and animal, that made the series a success.

I wanted to like Hiss of Death, after all, some of my favorite books have been the Mrs. Murphy mysteries. I'm afraid this one fell prey to the same bugaboo as Cat of the Century--political, and other, rants. I understand Rita Mae's feelings, I even agree with a lot of her politics, but she has to get off that soapbox and write us a mystery we can enjoy.

I blame her editors, too, who have let this sort of thing through. There's about half a good mystery here, but the other half of the book is composed of polemics on politicians, taxes, big business, land development, and of course, in a book involving Harry's treatment for breast cancer, medicine. We don't see most of the characters we've come to know and love, don't even see Miranda when Harry is being treated for cancer, and Big Mim, Little Marilyn, BoomBoom, don't play any role. Susan's around, but more for window-dressing than anything. The plot, the characters, the animals, are all given short shrift in favor of the rants.

It would have been wonderful to actually see Harry's treatment, not just learn about it in a sentence or two, and we don't see how the conspiracy behind the murders is actually uncovered. No sleuthing, uncovering the truth, etc., etc. It all just seems to fall out of the sky in the last couple of chapters, and even the hints there are, are throwaways, skimped in favor of rants. Every time two characters start a conversation, one or the other launches into a monologue on some issue dear to Rita Mae's heart. This is what sank Cat of the Century, and it makes about 90% of the book just drag. When you have to skim big chunks just to maintain some interest in the book, it's just not working.

Please, Rita Mae, write letters to the editor to get all this out of your system, do editorials in Time and Newsweek, but when you sit down to write a mystery, write a mystery. We miss them.
Hiss of Death is very disappointing. It's a book about breast cancer, diagnosis, and treatment, rather than a Mrs. Murphy mystery. The mystery plot is very poor and lacks cohesion, it doesn't seem to be very well thought out, and the animals, which are supposed to be the central point of the plot, are just not there. I do not buy these books to learn all about breast cancer, but that's what this book is mostly about. I would not recommend this book to anyone, unless they want an education on breast cancer!
I am a long-time fan of Rita Mae Brown and her Sneaky Pie Brown series. However, this book was a big let down. First of all, the book was mostly her pontificating about the merits of hardcore gyms (as opposed to the fitness centers like Retro Fitness) and a step-by-step description of the various workout routines and training Harry was doing. Also, it was a lot about Harry's breast cancer. While I know Rita's books contain a lot of social and political opinions via Harry's and her critters ruminations, in her previous books they took a backseat to the story. In this book, they overshadowed the story. Second of all, in this book, the story was almost non-existent. There were the usual murders, but there was no action by Harry or her critters until the last 60% of the book. There were few meaningful clues which a fan of whodunits could piece together. I read patiently, hoping for something to catch my interest and attention but nothing did. I was totally turned off by this book.
The last couple of Mrs. Murphy novels have decided me from ever buying another one. I enjoyed the past ones because the animals were the center of attention, the people of Crozet were interesting, and Harry had substance about her. Harry was a much more interesting character when she worked for the Post Office and was single.

I was hoping the last novel was just an aberration, but it appears not to be so. I agree with RMB on some of the political issues, but if I wanted a political rant and how unfair the world is I would go to Huffington Post to get my daily dose of politics as usual.

Cancer is a serious subject, but I would prefer not to see it in the Sneaky Pie books. These books were always light hearted and fun and I enjoyed the antics of the animals. I didn't find that in this. Nor do I feel that a mystery novel is the place to rant about politics.

What started out as a fun series of books have turned boring and into a soapbox. No More.

I have read all of the Mrs. Murphy books by Rita Mae Brown, and enjoyed each of these mysteries involving Harry Harristeen, her Corgi dog, T Tucker, and two cats, Mrs. Murphy and Pewter. The three animals as well as other animals on Harry's farm, have helped her in solving delightful mysteries which involve the various and interesting friends, family, and neighbors of the main Virginia character. However, of late, her mysteries have become more and more a platform for her political views, which, I feel, do not have a place in this type of novel. Whether or not I agree with these views, I think it distracts from the story line, and takes much away from the delight of the stories. I have enjoyed the way the animals as well as the humans communicate with each other, but politics have a way of causing the mind to wander away from the plot. I wish that Rita Mae Brown would return to her original format, and stick to solving the mysteries rather than solving the political problems of our nation!
I would say that this book is about 25% story and 75% preaching, or to use another reviewer's term, ranting. Every new Mrs. Murphy book has had less story and more rant. I have put up with the ranting for the sake of the story. This one for sure was NOT worth it. I managed to get thru it, but barely. Instead of buying Rita Mae Brown books as soon as they come out, I'm going to wait and read the reviews. I think that the author really didn't have a good idea for a story here and filled up the pages with her political views. The real mystery here, was why the publisher put out such a poor book. I don't read mysteries to be preached at, I read them for the stories. If there is no story, then I don't want to read it. You are going to have to do a lot better, Rita, if you want me to buy another of your books. MJ
