I just love the family dynamics and the southern ambiance in these books.

New York City Police Detective Sigrid Harald knew something was amiss when she saw the couple. Margaret Maron, New York Times bestselling author and Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, returns to Colleton County with an exciting new Deborah Knott mystery. LONG UPON THE LAND On a quiet August morning, Judge Deborah Knott's father Kezzie makes a shocking discovery on a remote corner of his farm: the body of a man bludgeoned to death. I just love the family dynamics and the southern ambiance in these books.

Deborah Knott has just been appointed as judge. She's also been drafted to help in a project in which women are building a home for a needy family.

Deborah Knott may have lost the district election, but a bigoted judge's sudden death-and some old-fashioned political horse trading-have won her a governor's appointment. True to Southern form, her swearing-in is followed by a raucous reception that brings out every elderly aunt and cousin in the county. Deborah Knott has just been appointed as judge. It's not long before we see members of Judge Knott's family in distress and a murder is discovered.

Book in the Deborah Knott Mysteries Series). If you've read Ms. Maron's 8-book Sigrid Harald series, you might well wonder if this is indeed the same author who has now given us (a coincidence?) 8 more in the Judge Deborah Knott collection. Sigrid is a straight-laced NYC detective whose psyche just starts to unfold by the end of the set. The stories focus on the crime (usually a murder in chapter one) and the police procedures involved in catching the crook.

"Excellent . . . a thriller that simply oozes southern charm and atmosphere." - Booklist

With sass and wit, Deborah Knott, formerly a defense attorney in North Carolina's Colleton County, is putting herself firmly on the seat of power - a district judgeship. She's also making good on a campaign promise: helping to build houses for battered women. Here Deborah expects muscle aches, not the near-rape of a young woman and the murder of her attacker. And she certainly never expects that her hammer - complete with her fingerprints - will be the murder weapon . . .

I enjoy this series, but the family tree is needed before it's provided in Slow Dollar. I can't give it all here, but I think this list of her brothers should help. The first 8 are with Deborah's father Kezzie & his 1st wife, Annie Ruth Langdon, and the rest are with Deborah's mother Susan Stephenson. I'm also naming their wives.

I picked up reading this series at Storm Track, so there were some questions about the Knotts that I did have answers to. This book, the second in the series, answers a few of them while telling a pretty good story.

This books who-done-it hits close to home when Deborah's niece is assaulted while working on a Habitat to Humanity-like project involving women at all phases of the process. Her niece is able to identify her attacker, and when he turns up dead the list of suspects includes a few Knotts. As always the book also contains interesting court cases and interesting Southern customs.

It is not necessary to have read the first book to understand the second, but it helps. And, since the first book is as good as the second, it won't be a waste.

I first picked up a book by Mrs. Maron about six years ago and have been a devoted fan ever since. I am thrilled that the earlier novels in the Judge Knott series are being released again as I had trouble finding them when I first discovered the Judge Knott series. What I love best about Southern Discomfort was meeting more of the wonderfully Southern Knott clan! If you like independent women, intriguing supportive characters, and Mrs. Marple style mysteries, you will enjoy the series. Fast paced yet with the slow Southern attitude, I can't put the books down once I start reading them; recently, I've started reading the series again. It's even more fun the second time around! Her writing has improved greatly over the years, but the early novels can hold their own quite nicely.

Great cast of loveabke characters and mysteries worth reading. I have read two now and I am planning on reading the rest. While I read for simple pleasure, I want and appreciate a talented way with words. So far I find it in the Deborah Knott mysteries.

I've came across the Deborah Knott Mysteries some time ago when I was a young adult. Recently I've decided to start form the beginning, which shows this Ms. Maron had it from the beginning. If you are looking for a die hard mystery, this isn't the book for you. It falls under mystery because of course there is one, but these stories are more the telling of people and their interactions. Ms. Maron from the beginning tackled issues that are sadly still issues today, like race relations, and (in DK#1 LGBT issues). I love here books and I think I always will. Now I'm on to the next one!
  • Rit
A surprisingly well developed heroine, with provocative viewpoints. I had to read the entire series--and it just kept getting better. The heroines background of a quasi criminal, yet very loving, family gives an interesting flavor to this morally upstanding law professional. Finding the right balance, not preachy, but not a sellout, was a definite accomplishment for the writer. Do read these; you'll be glad.

I always enjoy Margaret Maron's Deborak Knott books. This one is no exception. Another page turner for Ms Maron. Keep them comin'
Real, believable characters in a framework not unlike my own childhood not so far away from Dobbs or the tobacco barn.
