人生舞台上,我奏着自己的生命曲,而您是其中的一小段插曲,虽只属那么地一段,但少了那一段,整首曲更显得缺残。

书伴度假日

最近虽然应付着SPM,但有天在整理堆满尘埃的书陈时,忽然发现有两本没什么印象的书。来自同样作者,Marcia Muller的死亡游戏Games to Keep the Dark Away和星期天谋杀案中文版。稍翻阅一下,不禁让我继续看下去。文字中的文字,案中案的剧情,让我赫然发现原来写作是可以那么生动的。特意介绍给你。

死亡游戏Games to Keep the Dark Away

by Marcia Muller

he woman under the pier...
Picture Salmon Bay: an isolated, run-down northern California village, home to an idle fleet of fishing boats, a deserted amusement park, and a handful of secretive, even hostile residents. When private investigator Sharon McCone arrives in search of one of the town's wayward daughters, the trail leads to the thriving resort of Port San Marco. McCone believes that the missing woman, a former social worker named Jane Anthony, was involved in the suspicious deaths of three terminally ill patients at an exclusive hospice.

But the elusive Jane Anthony turns up all too soon—washed up beneath a rotting pier in her Salmon Bay. McCone discovers that no one—not her client, a reclusive photographer, nor Jane's mother, nor her hospice employers—wants to find out why she died. Then the killer strikes again, Jane's secret life comes into focus, and McCone finds that someone wants her out of the picture—permanently.

星期天谋杀案There's Something in a Sunday
by Marcia Muller

nd on the Seventh Day...

It's a cold Sunday in San Francisco. Sharon McCone's alone on a routine surveillance job, following a man named Frank Wilkonson through the city's lush horticultural hot spots to the sere foothills of the Diablos. But when she returns to find her kindly old client in a pool of blood, nothing she's learned explains it. The search for answers takes her from Wilkonson's sullen brood on Burning Oak Ranch, to the eccentric havoc of a household in the Haight, to Golden Gate Park and the desperate digs of the homeless. Unraveling the threads that link a homeless man, a pair of prominent activists, a wayward rancher, and a mysterious missing beauty, Sharon is plunged into the depths of domestic mayhem...entering a realm where dreams shatter and marriage leads to bloody murder.
