I am a fan of the John Jordan mysteries. I don't know if you noticed the discussion I initiated here - I am interested in Divine Detectives, as in clergy or other religiously focused people who solve crimes. Any thoughts you might have would be welcomed. I am leading a 3 part discussion on reading Crime Fiction as a Spiritual Exercise, and would be especially interested in how writing the John Jordan stories influences or is influenced by your sense of spirituality.
As a Floridian also is also a fan of Tim Dorsey and Carl Hiaasen, I would be quite a used if Serge or Skink met the good chaplain some day.
Michael, Anyone who missed the panel at Bouchercon, really missed out. You did a terrific job. I ran out of the room looking for your books. I found one in the bookroom & tracking down your newest, Double Exposure. But most of all I love what your trying to do for Northern Florida. You get my support & I'll pass it on. Gra Mor , Rod

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
