Beginnings (More)

On Sundays we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Peter Abrahams books in chronological order, including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. Here from 2010 – #24, THEREBY HANGS A TAIL, second in the Chet and Bernie series. Among many other things, Chet has an encounter with aging hippies. I love writing about hippies!

[“Quinn has a gift for hardboiled and Kibbled dialogue, and his novels are a delicious mix of comedy, of quirky character studies (in the manner of Elmore Leonard or Carl Hiaasen) and Sam Spade-style action. I can’t think of a better break from the headlines.”
– Booklist]

The perp looked around – what nasty little eyes he had! – and saw there was nowhere to go.

May we present the cover of the first Queenie and Arthur novel? (Now available for preorder. Middle-grade, so adults unaccompanied by a minor will need fake ID.)
