    A great take on this book, and I now want to see the movie.

    Summary

    Davy Dempsey is contentedly married (though he's spending more time with his dog than his wife), comfortably wealthy (though he's spending his nest egg on everyone but himself), and completely reformed from a life of crime (though he's spending entirely too much energy contemplating one tiny regression). And somewhere between conning scalpers, construction scrapes, and a close encounter with a questionable Santa, he gets to spend Christmas with his newly-integrated, functionally-dysfunctional family (though he wouldn't want them any other way).

    How have I not run across this story before now? This is excellent; it reads like a sequel novella in the Dempseyverse.

    This reads like canon. It's creepy and wondrous, and it has footnotes!

    Summary

    Beatrice slitted her eyes at him. "You're talking about my friends."

    He took another long drag of his cigarette. "Am I?"

    It's the big school dance, and Beatrice is utterly fed up with everyone. Worst of all, the punch isn't even alcoholic. Modern AU, high school setting, because I have no idea why this isn't a teen movie yet.

    A great alternate setting, and an exchange that makes me think about the source in a new way.

    Summary

    "I fully recognize it's beneath you," I told him, having given him a sketch of Lily's problem. "The necklace is only worth a measly twenty or thirty grand, and it's not as though you've ever considered yourself in Miss Rowan's debt — "

    "Grrh," Wolfe said, so I took it that my point had been made and moved on.

    A good mystery plot, and a good voice.
