A Fun read. What's a female detective to do when she gets sideswipped by a high risk pregnancy? Lie on her porch for the last 2 months on total bed rest. With a pair of binoculars.

What follows is a novella with homages and tributes to varied classics. Rear Window obviously comes to mind... But you will see a lot more. Good taut mystery, hidden in a book that was written for serialization in the NYT. now in book format. Fun.

Oh... does anyone else get the reference to Pet Semitary?

Fly far little book!

Since Pakistan's flag is green and white, this book with a predominantly green cover is released for the victims of the recent bombing in Pakistan and victims of terrorism worldwide. To quote John Lennon, "Imagine all the people living life in peace..."

I'm so glad you've found this book!

Won't you please make a journal entry to let the book's previous readers know that it's safely in your hands? How did you find it? What did you think of it? What are you going to do with it next?

It's now your book, for you to do with as you please: keep it, pass it to a friend, or maybe even leave it where someone else can find it!

If you've ever wondered where your books go after they leave your hands, join BookCrossing and you may find out: you'll be able to follow the further adventures of your books as new readers make journal entries - sometimes from surprisingly far-flung locations.
