2/9/1993 Death by Station Wagon
February 9, 1993. This is the publication date for Death by Station Wagon, Jon Katz's first novel about suburban detective, Kit Deleeuw who became a house-husband and sleuth after being laid off from a Wall Street job.
Publishers' Weekly loved everything except the title: "Suburbia has rarely looked so perilous as in this ultimately
exhilarating mystery, with its utterly believable, uniquely modern hero."
