Got it, Todd! Had to truncate the title a bit to make it fit.

BV Lawson

And thanks very much, Todd and Richard, for the kind words. Glad to help Patti out so that she can take some time off. Looking forward to Ross Macdonald next week!

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora)

Thanks for the Roos review (have read too few of their efforts) and for hosting the FFB.

BV Lawson

And thanks to you, Sergio, and Todd and Richard and all the other faithful FFBeans for your contributions through the years. I have such a huge TBR pile from new-to-me FFB books, I will need a couple of additional lifetimes to get through them all.

Kelly Robinson

I'll have to look for those Rue Morgue reprints. The series sounds charming. Thanks for playing host this week.

BV Lawson

Husband and wife duos seemed to fall out of favor for awhile, Kelly. Not sure why, because they can be a lot of fun.

Patti Abbott

Thanks so much, Bonnie. We had no Internet so I couldn't change your name until now.

BV Lawson

No internet? Sounds absolutely heavenly right now, Patti! I could use a little computer break for awhile - I think it does the soul good. Glad you got a nice vacation!
