Nice illustration on the cover!
Maggie is a freelance proofreader with a strange sense of humor. For example, “I had been lapsing into a comma.” I guess this was a mockery statement on the proofreading job that was overloaded with commas. Lame, if you ask me.
The character tended to go off on endless monologues, often deviating from the story line and making the reading a bit stale. Just like the cover displays, she finds the new editor-in-chief slumped over his desk, dead, stabbed by a letter opener in his back. The thing is we don’t get to this pivotal scene until chapter 4. And even in the midst of this terror, she still annoys readers with her over analytical mouth.
Just not worth the read.
