Cassandra Chan has published four novels, most recently A Spider on the Stairs, and several short stories featuring Gibbons and Bethancourt. She lives in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

It's last week, and I get a call from Crissie, who is fussed because her husbandish, Shaun, has been abruptly called away on a business trip to Arkansas where it is apparently snowing. Crissie grew up in Florida and she has a deep-seated distrust of winter weather.

"Shaun won't listen to me," she complains. "He keeps saying that it's only a couple of inches, so they'll plow and everything will b...

Cassandra Cassandra said: " This is one of Crissie's all-time favorites from long ago. I'm liking it so far, and it certainly does very well when my brain is just too tired to parse "Christianity: the first 3,000 years." "

This is one of the best in the series. I've just finished re-reading the entire series from start to finish, and it's as wonderful as when I first encountered it. The pace seems to be picking up a bit in the later books, but they're all wonderful. An ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Great characters, solid plot, and splendid pacing. You really want to know what happens to Kelsea and although there were no mind-blowing twists, there were plenty of secrets hinted at that I wanted to know the answer to. ...more

“Gibbons wondered vaguely if he was becoming a morphine addict. He had certainly dosed himself into a stupid on account of the hideous pain resulting from the nurse's insistence that he get up and sit in a chair. He rather thought that being a drug addict would interfere with his career as a police detective, but that didn't seem to matter as much as it had a little while ago.”
Cassandra Chan, Trick of the Mind

“I hate this case,' stated Gibbons unequivocally. 'I don’t know what really happened, I shall probably never know what really happened, and I shall still be a detective sergeant when I’m sixty.”
Cassandra Chan, Village Affairs
