It's hard to pinpoint when a story begins. Who knows when that butterfly flapped its wings, churning up the atmosphere enough to send a new tangle of events careening your way?


-- Never Look Down by Warren Easley, from Poison Pen Press. Cal Claxton is an ex-L.A. prosecutor now practicing law in Oregon.

This third book in the series finds Cal helping a 16-year-old graffiti tagger and urban climber after she witnesses a murder -- from four stories up the outside of a downtown office building.

I haven't read anything by this author, but I've never gotten a bad one from Poison Pen Press. Sounds interesting and thoughtful from that beginning.

Nice beginning to Never Look Down. I wasn't able to get my Book Beginnings up today; been struggling with PC issues. I'll get it up tomorrow morning and hopefully get back on track with my reading / reviewing. :)
