Part of my responsiblities as mass market managing editor of Ballantine includes handling reprints. In addition to updating front and back matter in order to keep everything up to date, I make sure that any text changes that need to be made are indeed made. This could include anything from factual information that an author wants to change to simple misspellings (although we pride ourselves in having many books with zero typos). Well, recently I received a letter that had originally been sent from a reader to Faye Kellerman, who sent it on to us. The reader wrote about how much she loves Faye's books, and she was shocked to find a few typos in one of the books. I reviewed her list of "errors," and lo and behold, a couple of them absolutely had to be changed. Whenever a reader does something like this, I like to respond with a letter of my own, along with a copy of the book with the corrections made. But in this case there was only a return address; nowhere was there a name. I looked at the address again; it sounded awful familiar. I searched the remnants of my limited brain and suddenly realized that the letter had come from one of my best friends' mothers. And I could see Mrs. R's style all over it. I immediately called my friend and told him about it; we decided to do nothing until the next reprint comes out, with the corrections. Then I'll send a copy of the book, with a note from me, thanking Mrs. R for all her help. I guess the world gets a little smaller every day. . . .

"Faye Kellerman's best novel to date: deeper, richer, more emotionally complex."
With his Orthodox Jewish girlfriend, Rina Lazarus, thousands of miles away in New York wrestling with his marriage proposal, it is a lonelier morning than usual when LAPD detective Pete Decker catches something strange in his headlights. What he discovers is a two-year-old child covered with blood, but otherwise unharmed. Decker is trying to return her to her family, and by the time Rina returns home, he's obsessed with the case. Then he stumbles onto a grisly quadruple murder scene and learns what can happen when passion turns into a fatal blood feud....
"Easily puts her into a class with the most literate, facile and engaging writers in the business."
