Please combine with the other editions of Witness in Death by J.D. Robb.

The description came from the authors website so I would like to suggest changing all the other editions descriptions to match. Thanks.

Sandra | 23832 comments Not necessary to change descriptions unless they are wrong. It is quite interesting to read different descriptions of the same book.

JSWolf | 649 comments But you would think if a book is described at an authors site that the description used would be the one to use for all entries.

Thanks for the combination.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Descriptions often come from publishers and might well differ between editions based on how each publisher feels the book should be presented at that time. That's as valid as an author's description.

JSWolf | 649 comments That sounds fairly logical.

Deana (ablotial) | 15 comments I might be able to see putting it as the default description if we don't have a description at all for a book edition. But I, for one, prefer to have the description match the one on the back of the book or inside the flaps of the dust jacket when I shelve a book.
