Jean Harrington (wwwjeanharringtoncom) | 105 comments Aha! Re September 4th suggestion for a book with some sort of written communication as part of the plot--take a peek at cozy mystery, The Design Is Murder. It opens with a letter from a convict. One small part of the mystery--his prison number is the same as that of a famous convict. A fun read.
