Book Blurb Friday - 09/30/11

Linda Ricard Claro provides the forum, Anyes at Far Away in the Sunshine provided the photographic inspriation, and we are left to provide the book blurb for our imaginary book cover. 

Sleeping with the Fishes
by Terwilliger J. Cranston

A non-existent crime rate, well-manicured lawns and gorgeous views of Wallingford Bay are some of the perks of living in Stedley, where well-heeled executives and old money families rule over their empires. Boats and swimmers share the water with striped bass and world-record sized catfish.

Viewing the bay from any of the waterfront estates, you’d never imagine what lies beneath the placid surface of the water.  Maybe you should ask Police Chief Ima Pescatore, a loyal public servant who has been trying to worm her way into Stedley society for two years, without success.

Ima’s success as a police chief is lauded when she receives the Bob N. Spinner Award from NACOP. Little do they know that Ima’s been improving crime statistics by ensuring that criminals stupid enough to ply their trade within the confines of Stedley soon find themselves plunged into a watery grave.


  1. What an intriguing twist. Will Ima be caught taking justice into her own hands? I'm guessing she will and I'm dying to read the details.

  2. Ok, now I must read this truly fictional, fiction book. Great, great job

  3. I would never be able to resist a book with a watery grave! Especially one that feeds prize-winning catfish and old money families. Very clever. Even if I'm not crazy about Ima, I would love to read about her!

  4. Sounds like Ima's been a very bad girl. And this does sound like it could be a real book.

  5. Fabulous names. "Ima Pescatore" made me laugh with its mixture of languages.
    I'd buy this book based on your blurb.

  6. LOL I had to go to babelfish to look up "pescatore." Very clever! Just the fact that your main character is a good guy who is a bad guy makes it intriguing. She's kind of like Dexter! Ima may be on her way to a cable TV series. :)

  7. Sounds like a great story ... love your names. Swimming with the catfish sounds scary enough; never mind the dead bodies at the bottom.

    I think this would be a great read.
