Forensic handwriting expert Claudia Rose returns in the third book in this series. New readers may begin here without worrying that they won't be able to keep up, but I do recommend reading the previous two books either before or after reading DEAD WRITE because they are so enjoyable.

One of the refreshing aspects of this series is that Claudia Rose, unlike some cozy main characters, isn't tripping over dead bodies everywhere she goes nor are her friends always in deadly peril. This series is well planned and well written. The handwriting details are interesting and the circumstances of the mystery seem plausible.

Grusha Olinetsky is the founder of an elite dating service in New York. She asks Claudia to review her clients' handwriting. It seems that several of her clients have died recently of mysterious but natural causes. Olinetsky isn't so sure they really were "natural" deaths.

Other titles in this series include WRITTEN IN BLOOD and POISON PEN.
