JACKAL, A Jessica James Mystery, Launches Today
Have you ever been sawed in half?



…I have.

When I was in grad school, I dated a guy who would dress me up in skimpy outfits, lock me in handcuffs, and put me in a box.

“It was always the ones with A-minuses who came around to argue about their grades.”

“He knew Kandinsky by heart: every trickle of red, slash of black ink, and hemorrhage of gold. Each dissonant note in its allegro, the harmony in its adagio, and its deep blue intermezzo, formed a symphony he had memorized in his body.
