Today I've got Katherine's murder mystery character on my couch. Scott is a very effective detective. He's married to a surgical nurse, and at home, he's messy, disorganized, and unfocused. A girl in his hometown is murdered, and Scott often feels compulsion to seek justice for victims. Lately, he's been a mess. He's starting to drink and forget to eat, running compulsively, and spending his own time hunting down leads on the home-town girl's murder. His wife recently left him, getting tired of waiting for him to "grow up."
Oops. Clearly this one wasn't ready to post, as I was waiting to hear back from the author. Will repost next week.
