I am so glad Anne Cleeland found an answer to her publisher challenge. It is wonderful to have more stories about Doyle and Acton. I think Cleeland would be a consummate chess player based on her books. She has moves in mind way in advance. Even books ahead! The wonderfully complex relationship of Doyle and Acton continues to be marvelous to behold. And one can never be sure if a character is truly "good" or "bad." The grey area is very large! Williams? Savoie? Start with the first book to better appreciate the development of this relationship.
