I'm going to be pulling quotes from Abstract Aliases by Ritter Ames.
Here's how the book begins:
We stood across the wide moonlight river from Big Ben, in the prime spot for viewing London's New Year's fireworks extravaganza. the jubilant crowd jostled and shouldered its way to fill every inch along the Thames, more than a half-million people crowding into every open space around us this clear cold night.
It's a bit weird reading that right now, isn't it? But the book came out a couple years ago. Who would have thought we'd be where we are now?
And here's from page 56:
"Maybe Simon was trying to kidnap you. That's why he posted the rear guard."
I really enjoyed this book. Look for my review on Tuesday. Meantime, happy reading this weekend.
