The Alice Ott Mystery Series has a New Plot!
Have you heard of Alice Ott?
Well, she’s got another plot.
She brings things out into the light.
Sorting out what’s wrong and right.
Alice Ott and her crime-fighting crew are a three-generational group of amateur crime-busters, committed to challenging injustice without losing their sense of humor. They take on current dangers from bioterrorism to ecological threats. Alice and her wily friends find safety for a teenager unsafe in his home, join the invincible Raging Grannies to stop a pipeline that will destroy bucolic villages and woodlands, and expose the racial profiling that lands an innocent young nursing aide in the local jail. Defying age-based stereotypes, Alice makes time for romance with her handsome French lover, enjoys the eccentricities of her best friend Felicia, an exuberant herbalist and rule-breaker, and speaks the language of her splendidly-tattooed friends Warp and RubyStarr.
What Readers Are Saying
Vicki Ryder says:
Granny Dusty Miller, who rages with both the Western Massachusetts and the Central Florida gaggles of Raging Grannies, has created a delightful series of mysteries with a Raging Granny as the main sleuth. Her character, named Alice Ott, is based on a real Granny who gets involved in solving mysteries with socio-political themes like bioweapons (Danger in the Air), nuclear power (Danger at the Gates), fracked gas pipelines (Danger Under Ground), racial profiling, unsafe LGBT teens and sanctuary for undocumented immigrants,(Danger In the House).
I know it can be hard to make time for reading when there's so much going on in the world that demands our attention, but I'm afraid we can burn ourselves out if we don't take some time for ourselves, too, so escaping into a good mystery could be just the thing. And with a Raging Granny at the center of each plot... well, what could be better than that?"
Paki Wieland, Western Mass. Gaggle and CODEPINK volunteer:
Alice Ott continues to inspire me and Raging Grannies everywhere! Her life is a model for the ever increasing number of aging women who want to engage despite physical limitations. Her clever insights and community can give us courage in these challenging times!
I am so happy she continues to expose injustice with her quiet wisdom and a cadre of nonviolent activists!"
