(Not) Beginnings

Normally on Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker™. But we’ve got a special week coming up, so here, from Dog On It (first in the Chet and Bernie series – which can be read in any order!) is the first mention of Thanksgiving in C&B:

Albie Rose lived in the biggest house I’d ever seen, more like a palace, surrounded by high walls. A guy with big shoulders and a gun on his hip led us across vast green lawns to a huge swimming pool. On a deck chair by the pool lay a fat old man in a tiny bathing suit. His skin was oiled and deeply tanned, just about the color and texture of a turkey Leda had left too long in the oven one Thanksgiving. I tried not to look.

*Bargain in Mass.

Dog On It, first in the Chet and Bernie series (which can be read in any order) is on sale (the digital version) for $1.99! I think for a week or two. A chance to get to know C&B for anyone with the energy to check under the car seat for loose change.
