One mistake can cost you everything…
When you catch a twisted killer there should be a reward, right? What Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae gets instead is a ‘development opportunity’ out in the depths of rural Aberdeenshire. Welcome to divisional policing – catching drug dealers, shoplifters, vandals and the odd escaped farm animal.
Then a little girl’s body washes up just outside the sleepy town of Banff, kicking off a massive manhunt…

I have always been a big fan of crime mysteries. I suppose for me, it satisfies that deep need for order and fairness in the world, along with a morbid curiosity for crime scenes and the incredibly detached mind that marks a psychopath. By nature, I am a peaceful person, so virtually delving into the horrific — but not scary — world of crime scenes is a bit of a trip for me. I’m a big fan of Dexter, a guy who harnesses his psychopathic serial killer curse to rid the world of other serial killers, but only the ones who target innocent people.

I’ve been racking my brain for weeks trying to remember the name of a book I read as a child and for the life of me, I can’t remember the title. So, I’m hoping some of you out there might be able to help me out (I’m looking at you Amazing Children’s Librarians!).

The year is 2039, and Jack Fisher is the last living survivor of the Holocaust. Set in a world that is abysmally complacent about events of the last century, Jack is a 100-year-old man whose worst memories took place before he was 5. His story hearkens back to the Jewish ghetto of his birth and to Auschwitz where, as a little boy, he had to fend for himself to survive after losing his family. Jack becomes the central figure in a missing-person investigation when his granddaughter suddenly disappears. While assisting police, he finds himself in danger and must reach into the darkest corners of his memory to come out alive.

I’m going a little off topic today, but, to bring this back around to books, you would be your book club’s hero if you showed up to the next meeting with this dip.
Last year, my husband and I went to Tanta, a Peruvian restaurant here in Chicago and they served us a wonderful dip with fresh plantain chips. We asked the chef for the ingredients and then set out to recreate the recipe at home. This recipe uses two of our favorite Peruvian ingredients – Huacatay and Aji Amarillo.
