An artist and a gentleman

I would like to post a huge thank you to the artist Thomas McKnight.  As those of you who have read Fleeting Glance know, much of the plot in the book revolves around McKnight's paintings, right down to the puzzle left behind for the detectives to solve.  Then of course there is McKnight's guest appearance in the book (as himself).

Not only did he show me warm hospitality while I was researching Glance, he was a fantastic source of ideas for how he and my detective Enescu Fleet might have met and become such good friends.  In fact, I'm not entirely certain he and Fleet aren't really friends.

It was an incredible experience, and for all that I thank you.
