Not Beginnings (More)

On Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. But not today! With pub date for Of Mutts and Men so close (7/7, meaning there’s still time to take advantage of the preorder offer, namely the new short story – The Iggy Papers – for free with your hardcover or digital copy Of Mutts and Men, link below), why don’t we open the book to page 89?

“Too busy to make money?” Dewey said. “Check out the back seat.”

Mig came closer to the car, peered in at me. “A dog?”

“Know a P.I. name of Bernie Little?”

“The one with the dog? Heard of him.”

“This here’s the dog,” Dewey said.

“How’d you get him?”

“That’s not the point. A dog like this is valuable.”

    This sounds ominous.

    Chet, do you need to grab a pant leg? Where is Bernie?

    Am I going to have to read that chapter with my fingers over my eyes? Wait, that only works in movies. What to do, what to do. My heart hurts when Bernie and/or Chet are in danger.

    Two more days…I have thoroughly cleaned the downstairs for my guest who will arrive later today. Now to do the upstairs for me and then I will have free time to read. (It is supposed to rain on Wednesday so this is perfect timing)

    Mom and I get so upset when Bernie and Chet are separated! I let Mom read ahead to see how long it will be until they are back together. Then we go back and read those scary parts.

    Oh, NO! I pre-ordered my book from amazon and got it today. But I had no idea there was an e-book. I have The Iggy Chronicles. I *need* The Iggy Papers. I’d even pay for it. I’m looking all over and can’t find a place to buy it. Where do I find it now that the promotion is over?
