Yesterday a reader commented on the tennis in A PERFECT CRIME ( A quick think reminded us that tennis is also important in THE TUTOR. Also, in THEREBY HANGS A TAIL, the 2nd Chet and Bernie novel, doesn’t Chet encounter a tennis lesson and … offer his own kind of instruction, is maybe how to put it? Since the U.S. Open starts today, we’ll feature a few tennis scenes over the next two and a half weeks. Are there some tennis scenes – anywhere in the work of Peter Abrahams a.k.a. Spencer Quinn – that we’re missing?

    Good morning BooBear and everyone! Tennis, isn’t there a really annoying coach giving lessons in one story?
    Hope Hobbitz “studied” for her test today 😜.
    Tremendous Tuesday to all.

    There are tennis court scenes in Thereby Hangs A Tail page 168, The Dog Who Knew Too Much page 215, and Paw and Order page 199.

    Good morning all.

    Our Favorite thing about Tennis is the Tennis Balls. I’m sure Chet would agree.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Many, many thanks to B. Stover. No surprise, in retrospect – that’s her every time!

    The part about cats drinking milk and being irritating is in To Fetch a Thief on page 201. (This is fun! All one needs is a Kindle with a search function.)

    Hobbitz, how did you do with the hideous procedure today after the horrible prep yesterday? Sometimes we just have to get a grip and do what they tell us to do, right?

    Rio, If your friend finds some sheers it would be nice to have them. I like being able to look at stuff and remember the people I got it from. A little trip down memory lane.

    Alice M. just yorked up on the rug in the bedroom. 🙁
