I got this email today from someone who read DIAGNOSIS MURDER: THE LAST WORD and wasn’t too fond of it:
The reason why I like reading DM is because I enjoyed the television series. I, too, did think your recent book was a little "dark". I personally would prefer no changes and enjoyed reading about the one demensional tv character Dr. Sloan solving cases. If I wanted to read a novel, I will buy James Patterson.

Ha! Was that from Ted Nancy?
Germany reminds me of a TV show on DVD I watched yesterday — Flash Gordon — filmed in West Berlin in the 50s. Dale Arden (sci fi script writers in the 50s 60s stereotyped women as Playboy bunnies) flitting about in a Santa’s helper outfit. Except for the Flash, everyone else sounded like recent members of the gestapo or SS. I took a class on Berlin and not much left there after the war except Brandenburg Gate and a couple of churches. Love Dr. VanDyke.
Everyone has his own vision of perfection, it seems.
