      "... Rozan isn't the first writer to use ... Sept. 11, 2001 as the background for a crime novel. But the images of pain, loss and fear on every page of Absent Friends are so strong that the book will probably be remembered for them, rather than for the intricate and heartbreaking story of her characters ... Rozan, who has justly won every mystery award going for her series about Bill Smith and Lydia Chin, knows how to balance their pasts and their presents without trivializing anything that happened ... guts, brains and heart ... are present in abundance."

I've just started a book...about the shadows."

In the top left portion of the drawing is the phrase et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum, which translates and I expect (await) the resurrection of the dead. The phrase is found at the end of the Credo (Nicene Creed) of The Ordinary of the Mass (Roman Catholic). It is also the title given to an orchestral work by Messiaen (1964), dedicated to the memory of the dead of the two World Wars.
