Cool. I'm a Paretsky fan. Of the triumverate of female-tec-series novelists still active, Paretsky's the only one I haven't met; my null-fannish housemate Alice chewed me out for not telling Sue Grafton how much she liked her novels when I rode an elevator with her one time at BoucherCon.

The period at the end of the first CLUES link makes it inoperative.
