What? That's a sort of retroactive review, isn't it? It's been out since last spring or summer! It was even nominated for an Edgar last year. Has it just been re-released, maybe in paperback, or did it just take longer to get it out in the States?Weird, that, since the publisher is American. Or did it just take a long time for the NYTBW to notice it?

Oh, and Miker, congratulations on trumping me with the old Dead Parents Trick. Good tactic and a shrewd move, there. There aren't too many responses to that one, except to say that it's just too bad they didn't live long enough to hear the good news about that long-delayed growth spurt of yours. How proud they would have been.
