Patti Abbott

This looks very exotic yet relevant. Never heard of it or her before.

Paul D. Brazill

new to me but does look interesting

George Kelley

I've read some Charlotte Jay that ACE Books published, but not this one. Looks provocative!

BV Lawson

Hey, Patti! I have to admit, she was off my radar, too. When I went looking for more of her books at the library and online, I began to see why--they are very difficult to find, even via the usual used book/auction type sites. There was also very little about her life on the Web, which makes me even more curious.

BV Lawson

George, you'll have to recommend some other good titles by her you've read, and I'll see if I can track it down, although it looks like it may have to be via inter-library loan.

BV Lawson

Paul, I'll post this on your blog, too, but I love your choice for today's FFB -- I have a brother who lives in La-La Land, and a P.I. with a philosophical bent sounds like fun.

Todd Mason

Cool. I'm another who has never come across her work, as far as I know. Thanks.

Martin Edwards

I hadn't heard of this one, but you have got me interested, too!

Evan Lewis

Pakistan in the 50s would indeed be an interesting sight.

BV Lawson

The author's observations of her travels there, which are obviously included in the book, are quite poetic and descriptive. Some folks may find that she overdoes it (especially if you're into more action-oriented stories), but I think it worked well for this plot.
