The Book with the Good Intentions is a detective story in verse. Used bookstore owner/book detective Perry Cassidy aims to find out what happened to the woman who wrote inside an old book of Ogden Nash's poetry. "Please baby, let's change," Gloria wrote. It was a plea written in red ink and mirrored in other notes throughout the book, desperate words of love and regret penned inside a book of nonsense poetry. But Gloria's life was not nonsense, and Perry set out to discover the mystery of Gloria's life, even if it took her down some dark alleys and dangerous avenues.
