Les Neiges D’Antan

George at Tahoe this week (thanks for the pic, Bob), perhaps thinking the snow has lingered a little too long. (I’ve always liked writing about snow, and there’s a snowy scene or two in Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge (coming July 25, preorders welcome!).

On Sundays we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker™.  Since there’s been lots of snow lately how about Nerve Damage, where you’ll find some very snowy scenes. For this one the idea really did come out of the blue, complete in all essentials, including the first sentence (below). Lucky things sometimes happen in this business.

[“From the reliably marvelous Peter Abrahams comes Nerve Damage, another top-drawer psychological thriller.”
– Jennifer Reese, Entertainment Weekly]

Sometimes the dead live on in your dreams.

Snow is in the news. Chet comes upon it for the first time in The Dog Who Knew Too Much (below) but there’s plenty more in It’s A Wonderful Woof, the Chet and Bernie Christmas/holiday novel appearing in October (after Tender Is The Bite in July, “both preorderable” – Mrs. Publicist’s pushy mom).

“Snow, big guy.”

Snow? I’d heard of it, of course, seen it lots of times on TV during the divorce, when for some reason Bernie had really gotten into skiing videos. The snow sent coldness up into the air. I sniffed at it. Snow went right up my nose! I sneezed. Bernie laughed. I licked at the snow. It turned into water on my tongue, although not much water. Bernie picked some up and patted it – hey! – patted it into the shape of a ball. Yes! One thing about Bernie: just when you think he’s done with amazing you, he amazes you again. Now, after all this time, I was just finding out he could turn snow into a ball. I knew what was coming next, one of my favorite feelings.
