Indeed. And in MIAMI PURITY, rather thin and derivative noir, I'm afraid. Had to slog through that one as doggedly as I have through the worst bits of the least Mullers I've tried (MikeR...you still should try TROPHIES AND DEAD THINGS, among several other Mullers much superior to EDWIN, before giving up on her). I look forward to reading Hendricks's others, though...she can write. TM
