After a time in the desert, I missed deciduous trees so I headed northeast to the Chicago area. I completed Southern Methodist University's Writer's Path program in Dallas, Texas.

Good, old-fashioned (as in Golden Age) thriller. No overt sex or violence, no substance-addled, unreliable narrator.

Well-written, although present tense kind of annoyed me. But I'm not sure I can say I liked a book where I had no sympathy for any of the protagonists and hoped everyone except the police would be destroyed by the end

Combined art history and Harlem history with a mystery that was edgier than I expected for a MG novel. The message was a bit obvious but I'm not 10-12 years old. It might not be obvious to a middle grader.

Unfortunately, I didn't learn much about the space program or Wernher von Braun from reading this book. It was short on evidence and long on conjecture, assumption, and pejorative insinuation. Von Braun was a footnote to the author's opinion about Germans.

Linda I see you're reading about the space program. My Dad worked on Mercury/Gemini programs and knew the first seven astronauts and met von Braun. We were in St. Louis at the time and he worked for McDonnell (now McDonnell/Douglas). I am a HUGE space program fan!!
