Having just referred to this nifty tale in the Amazing Race thread, I picked up my copy and started looking at it again.

I guess I'd never really examined the cover of my IPL paperback closely before. Here's this sultry dark-haired dame holding a gun (OK, Megan does attempt to shoot someone in the book though she can't go through with it). But even more confusingly, here's the descriptive sentence printed next to her face: "A lot of people think about murder. Only a few do anything about it."

HUH? This is one of the rare mysteries with no murder at all. Where'd this description come from? (If it turns out to be Barbara's idea, my face is certainly red; but I feel reasonably confident it's not.)

Still loving the book, on third reading.
