Paige Turner asked Lisa Black:

Additionally, you identify the house cleaner who found the first body as having "brown skin" and Maggie's boss as black as she can "picture his long black fingers inching the bridge of his nose." WHY do you do that?

Lisa Black Because brown skin comes in a great variety of colors and I'm trying to describe the characters enough so that they are distinguishable, but not so much that it bogs down the scene.
