Played to Death by B.V. Lawson
“Owls are nocturnal, swooping down silently, with the soft edges of their feathers muffling the sound of the wings, before pouncing and swallowing their prey whole. Death unseen, death unheard, death from above—the military drones of the animal kingdom”

B.V. Lawson, Played to Death: A Scott Drayco Mystery

“Injustice, large and small, was like sour, moldy bread. Consumed often enough, it brought on hunger for the meat of revenge.”
B.V. Lawson, Played to Death: A Scott Drayco Mystery

“Humanity thrown together in the equivalent of a Petri dish under a microscope bred malignant organisms as often as benign.”
B.V. Lawson, Played to Death: A Scott Drayco Mystery

“Guilt, that necrotizing bacteria of conscience that loves to nibble away at happiness.”
B.V. Lawson, Requiem for Innocence: A Scott Drayco Mystery

Zoë Sharp Hi BV. Thanks so much for Friending me here. How's the writing going with you?

B.V. Zoë wrote: "Hi BV. Thanks so much for Friending me here. How's the writing going with you?" Hey, Zoë! Writing is going a bit better. My father's health started declining in the fall leading to a stint in home hospice and his death in February. It took awhile for me to ease back into things, but writing is good therapy.

I enjoy your Murderati posts and the Charlie Fox series, and maybe someday soon you can take some "Author R&R" on my In Reference to Murder blog. Authors offer their take on the research and references they use in their writing. (see http://tinyurl.com/b2vyavy). If you ever have time in your busy schedule, would love to have you drop by! Just let me know your availability at bv@bvlawson.com.

Verge LeNoir B. V. thank you for adding me to your G R friends list.
