Initial thoughts: I nearly didn’t read this book, simply because I thought it was about vampires, purely based on the front cover. However, to my happiness, I am so glad I did read this book – no vampires, plus it was an interesting mystery.

I did reflect back during the course of the novel (especially in the first couple of chapters) to see if the woman on the front depicted Avery or the recently engaged woman that was to marry Giles.

William Faulkner
“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”
William Faulkner
