The Knife Slipped



Back in 2010, I spent part of the summer at the University of Texas – Austin. I was researching a biography of Erle Stanley Gardner courtesy of a fellowship from the estate which was administered by the school.
I had 635 boxes of material to review and take notes on to have a complete picture of the author. Gardner never did anything by halves, so it was not surprising that his life had been bo Read more of this blog post »

“attitude, the cosmetic’s department would be busy. Women buying new lipsticks and earrings and men looking lost, trying to remember what perfume their wives had worn for the last twenty years. The new store manager had assigned inexperienced sales clerks to cosmetics. They wouldn't make the customers any happier. Why did each new manager think a reorganization would make everything better? Marissa swung her Rabbit into the parking space and waited for the”
Jeffrey Marks, The Scent Of Murder

“popular in the 1800s, people hadn’t begun to equate scent with sex. However, Marissa doubted that an ad campaign would be built around ankle-length dresses. Unless Madonna agreed to pose in a bustle. She put her finger in the coin holder in the car and wiggled it around. A dollar thirty-seven. Not even enough for lunch. Ellen would have to fork over since she insisted”

Jeffrey Marks I am enjoying Gregg's book. This is the first one I've read. I think I have it figured out as I'm at about 2/3 done, but we'll see.

The Fergus Hume was interesting. I wasn't sure what to expect with it, but it turned out to be a decent mystery novel.

Zoë Sharp Hi Jeffrey

Jeffrey Marks It is! I see you have a new book out!
