With two weeks to go until the calendar tells us one year has ended and another begins, the “year’s best” lists proliferate like fungus after a hard rain.

Lynda Hi, Michael! I, too, have worked at any number of jobs. I consider it all fodder for my novels. It looks like you're a mystery/thriller fan. If you ever want to read outside your favorite genre (and especially if you like dogs), I recently finished reading THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN by Garth Stein. It was excellent. Enjoy!
