It feels so good to have some time to read again. I finally finished Robert Tannenbaum's Counterplay. DA Butch Karp and the whole Karp-Ciampi family did appear to survive although that may not be clear until Tannenbaum's next novel, Malice, is published next month.
And now it's on to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. My copy arrived from Amazon.com 2 days ago and I'm ready to dig in. Now if all my friends who have read it since it came out last weekend will please not tell me anything about it. . . .
