It seems lately that too many mystery writers are asking me to like characters who are stuck on themselves and their own wealth, totally obnoxious and ugly to even their friends-- or all of the above! Not so "All White Girls."
Big Dick Rickenbacher's looking all over for Hubert Cove's daughter, who bought a bus ticket to Chicago and then disappeared. "All White Girls" revolves around two young women who ran away from home: one found dead but unidentified, and the one Rickenbacher can't find. Enlisting Jesse, a past love, in the search for Katherine Cove, Rickenbacker re-ignites a fire neither one is sure shouldn't have stayed put out! Even in a city the size of Chicago, runaway kids have some things in common, but the connection between these two young women, and a third-- long dead-- sure took me by surprise!!!!

Looking for a different way to manage your worklife? This book is loaded with fresh and exciting ideas, but also serves as an excellent introduction to the work of Chris Guillebeau, who has many other valuable resources available online. For example, although not everyone wishes they had a graduate degree, his guidelines for an alternative education are ones that would benefit almost everyone.

A Down-On-His-Luck reporter befriends an outwardly finicky Siamese cat with a regal name (Kao K'o-Kung) and unleashes a mischievous mystery-solving sleuthcat named KoKo.
