7/8/2001 Blues in the Night commence
July 8, 2001.It was the nightgown that hooked me: Sunday,
July 8, 1:46 A.M. Near Lookout Mountain and Laurel Canyon. An
unidentified woman in her mid to late twenties, wearing a nightgown, was
the victim of a hit-and-run accident that left her unconscious. There
were no witnesses.
That's the opening for Blues in the Night, Rochelle Krich's first
novel about freelance reporter Molly Bloom. Molly is happily divorced
but her high school sweetheart is back, and he's single. And a rabbi...
"Krich shows that she really knows her stuff...Molly
investigates with both thoroughness and compassion, making this
new sleuth worth her salt." - New York Times Book Review
