    2. No Stone Unturned by James W. Ziskin is a 2014 Seventh Street Books publication. This is the second book in the Ellie Stone mystery series and picks up about eight months later, with Ellie’s career as a small town newspaper reporter on life support. However, when a popular local girl is found dead, Ellie gets the scoop of a lifetime when the girl’s prominent father asks her to personally investigate the case. Ellie’s sadness over the loss of her father is palpable and his ghost still haunt [...]

    3. There are several things that truly impressed me about this book. First, if you like a step back in time, Ziskin does a fantastic job of taking you there. It's a real skill for an author to be able to create atmosphere with delicate touches, just the occasional phrase and description. He's great at it, no doubt.Second, there's something so many other reviewers have noted, his ability to make you believe in Ellie Stone, his main character. I love how ballsy she is, but also so real - she knows th [...]

    4. Reporters as crime solvers? Having spent 20 years in the journalism business, this is one of my favorite sub-themes of the mystery genre. I have to say that in the four news organizations I worked for, I never met one reporter who solved a homicide. (Sarcasm, in case you don't recognize it.) But who doesn’t relish the idea? It makes so much sense because, well, reporters are good at asking questions, getting nosy and they have a built-in gene to be pushy. And pushier.Ellie Stone is the reporte [...]

    5. I have to admit I quite like this book, but there are so many things that annoyed me, most are minor criticisms, but they have affected my rating for the book.As in the first book there are too many incidental characters that just appear and disappear.Her family were ‘comfortably off’ and as the only surviving member after the death of her father I am not sure why the author keeps making references to her being ‘hard up’ and her meagre salary being all she has.Also why does she keep walk [...]

    6. 3.5 A who-done-it . This is the first book in the series that I have read and I will keep reading the mysteries. Ellie Stone, a young news reporter for a small town newspaper in upstate New York is asked to look into the murder of the Judge's daughter home from college, found half buried in the woods by a hunter. The setting is in 1960 and the author does a good job of putting the reader into the time era. ' "Are American girls in the habit of getting tattooed? he asked after giving it some thou [...]

    7. I'm a huge fan of Ziskin's stories. I love the main character and her wit and determination, and that she's got her share of faults. This mystery doesn't disappoint, with great twists that kept me guessing. I loved discovering the story along with Ellie, and Ziskin is a master at engaging my whodunnit brain as well as delighting me with his finely crafted stories.

    8. First Sentence: The story I heard was that Fast Jack Donovan was chasing a rabbit through the woods when he tripped in the wet leaves.The body of a society girl is found half-buried in the woods. Reporter Ellie Stone hears the report on her scanner and heads to the scene with her camera. Determined to boost her struggling career, Ellie pursues the investigation on her own. The more secrets she uncovers, the greater her risk, perhaps even to her own life.Delightful period references though the st [...]

    9. #2 in the Ellie Stone series. Finalist 2015 Anthony Award for Best Paperback. Ellie hears of a found body in the woods on her scanner and is the first reporter on the scene. Because the police photographer is not available she is requested to take the crime scene photos and gains an inside track on the story. The victim is college student Jordan Shaw, daughter of the prominent Judge Shaw. The judge hears that Ellie solved the murder of her father earlier in the year and asks her to find his daug [...]

    10. I read an ARC of No Stone Unturned. The second Ellie Stone mystery does not disappoint. It's every bit as good as the first (Styx & Stone), and maybe even better. (I loved Styx & Stone.) Ellie is a compelling heroine. Clever, a little naughty, but so likeable, she's also flawed and sometimes troubled. But she has the guts to make it alone in a man's world. The plot is tight, and the author never cheats the reader. This is a fair-play mystery. Finally, I find the writing style to be beaut [...]

    11. I truly loved this book and the main character Ellis Stone. She is a go-getter and a trend-setter. I look forward to reading more about the adventures of Miss Stone.

    12. Uncover a series of mysteries from the nineteen sixties. In this second novel, small town news reporter Ellie Stone is the first news person on the scene, camera in hand, to witness the biggest story of her short and already stagnant news reporting career. She leaves No Stone Unturned investigating the leads, and fighting to show the newspaper owner that she is ready to report on the events that will shake the town to its foundation. She’s in competition with the well-established staff report [...]

    13. A great sophomore effort. I liked this one better than the first. Ellie Stone is a journalist and amateur sleuth in the early 1960s upstate New York. When Jordan Shaw, daughter of a local judge, is found scarcely buried in a field, Ellie is on the case. Fueled by the recent violent death of her father, a journalist’s eye for detail, and a liberated woman’s cunning determination, Ellie is recruited by Judge Shaw (Jordan’s father) to find the murderer. As usual, I enjoyed Ellie’s wit and s [...]

    14. After reading No Stone Unturned, I look forward to going back to read book one in the series, Styx & Stone. The plot in No Stone Unturned hinges on a number of people following one another, which stretched my suspension of disbelief a bit. However, I liked the 1960, small town upstate New York setting. And I loved the twenty-four-year-old, gritty, hard-drinking protagonist--photo journalist Ellie Stone. Her backstory is what lures me to read the first book.

    15. I read this because Ziskin will be the presenter at the Puget Sound Sisters in Crime meeting, 1/11/2018. I'm glad I did. I savored the characters and the gritty setting James Ziskin created — this is a great book to take your time with. It kept me guessing throughout.It’s 1960 in the small town of New Holland, in upstate New York. There are soda jerks, many old and a few new cars, and a roadside motel. Then there’s the body of Jordan Shaw, a college girl and daughter of the local judge, le [...]

    16. This book is even better than the first one of the series. Interesting investigative procedures before DNA became a factor.

    17. Really enjoyed the first two books in series. More involved than the cozy mysteries. like the heroine and plot.

    18. It's hard to put these books down once you've started them! Can't wait to get started on the next one!

    19. I really love this series by James W Ziskin! Ellie Stone is a great reporter and I can't wait to read more about her in the 1960's! :)

    20. Loving this series - I am so enjoying character and her complex life in the 60'sBring the cigarettes, scotch and fabulous records!

    21. Ellie Stone is back, solving a mystery in her home town. A college student is murdered, interweaving the academic community with the characters in New Holland

    22. My reading of the Ellie Stone series has been a bit backward, as I started with the third and most recent book, Stone Cold Dead, and then had to immediately buy and read the first one, Styx and Stone. And, now I am up to speed with having just finished No Stone Unturned, so I can pronounce this series consistently excellent. As I read No Stone Unturned, the overriding strength that is apparent is Ziskin's control of the story. The plot and pace are always moving forward at just the right speed, [...]

    23. James W. Ziskin has done it again with the second in his Ellie Stone mysteries. It’s a terrific read, which I had a really hard time putting down, even when it was well past my bedtime STONE UNTURNED finds Ellie back in New Holland, the small upstate New York town where she struggles as a “girl reporter” for the local paper. The year is 1960, and Ziskin’s descriptions of the time and place evoke the era as well as anything I’ve ever read or seen on TV or the movies. I adore Ellie [...]

    24. The gorgeous, dark writing and setting I discovered in book one, Styx and Stone, continues in this adventure. This time Ellie's back in her job as a newspaper reporter in a small town and manages to be in the right place and time to take on the dual role of detective and news seeker. Not an easy feat for a single woman in the early 60s and her actions and stubbornness while skirting complicated office politics are often frustrating to her bosses and friends. But part of her charm is that she's h [...]

    25. I wish there were more than 5 stars. This 2nd book in the Ellie Stone Mysteries was AWESOME !!! I do have to be honest and admit that I did enjoy the 2nd book a tad bit better than the 1st. Maybe it was that I felt more familiar with the area where the story took place or because I was more familiar with the main character Ellie, or that I enjoyed the murder more Whatever it was it is definitely a must read for everyone. I met the author, James Ziskin, for the 2nd time on Monday, obtained the bo [...]

    26. Ellie Stone is my kind of protagonist! Sharp, witty, fearless and with just enough vices to make her interesting. The second adventure in the series finds this 1960's reporter investigating the murder of a prominent judge's daughter in upstate New York. The atmosphere in this traditional mystery -- i.e not cozy but not noir, either -- is beautifully realized. I could almost feel myself with Ellie traveling down dark country roads and searching for clues behind a seedy motel. Ziskin is a talented [...]

    27. This second book in the series is a good followup to Ellie Stone's life. In this one, she goes back to her little town in upstate New York and, through the use of a police scanner, is able to scoop the typical male reporter on the story of a beautiful judge's daughter, murdered and left by the roadside in the woods. Ellie feels a strange affinity for this girl and for her bereaved father, who asks her to find who killed his beloved daughter. Again, Ellie delves into academe, this time a graduate [...]

    28. This is my favorite of the series so far. Imaginative descriptive language and a mystery that kept me guessing til the end. Not just because it's set in my hometown and I recognize all the places and a few of the characters, I love this series for its setting - 1960 or thereabouts - and the noirish female amateur detective/reporter for the small town paper. Wish we had her when I lived in "New Holland." The paper might have been more interesting to read. Hoping this author keeps 'em coming. High [...]
