Here's mine, Todd:

Artists, Models and Murder by Tedd Steele.

If nothing else, the cover is to die for. No pun intended.

Yvette said...

Todd, I posted one today. :)

Prashant C. Trikannad said...

Lots of good selections. Thanks for the links, Todd.

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Prashant..and Brian and Yvette...

Rick Robinson said...

Todd, as always, thanks for the work of gathering, sorting and posting FFB. No one realizes how much work it is until it's been done. Walk in the moccasins, and all that.

Todd Mason said...

Well, thank you, Rick...I find the only real problem it poses me is on a day like today, under time crunches on a variety of levels (most of which, such as a housemate with the flu and the shirttail end of a blizzard passing through I didn't quite expect), that it always manages to take a little longer than I expect it to...and I can't ever spend as much time as I'd like responding to all the entries.

Hi Todd

Here's my entry (a little late in the day):

The Body on the Beam by Anthony Gilbert.


Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Neer. Hope even such a late placement drives a little traffic your way.
