I really did enjoy this book, and Ritu herself is a very interesting woman. Born in Kolkata, India, and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, she is very intelligent and lots of fun to talk to.
She mentions my hometown in the book! Havertown, PA. I almost fell down after I read that. How often does this happen? Hear what she says about that.
This book is the start of a new series, and that thrills me. LYDIA WESTON, the hero of the story, is such an interesting character. And not very well-accepted in her professions as a teacher and anatomist, although the teaching part is much easier for her.
Does the writer remind me of Scarpetta? Yes, some, but these are going to be set in 19th-century Philly, so will Ritu have to come visit the area? Let her explain about it.
I really think Ritu will have a nice career as a writer, and I look forward to more books in the future, and the cover is a little scary to see, very misty and mysterious, but that is what they wanted. To get a major publisher in Simon and Schuster is a major deal. I really enjoyed this interview, and they go so fast. These characters are very interesting. How is this all done? She will explain a lot during the interview. ENJOY!
