Zoe 

I got the three A.M. call no one ever wants. After I fumbled and dropped the phone, I finally heard the news I’d always dreaded. My father was in the hospital. And I was in Europe six thousand miles away from Los Angeles. 

I hopped one plane, then another. Then I was on a city bus to the hospital because I was stuck in L.A. without a car, which was like being in a river without a boat and without a paddle. The city wasn’t looking like it was going to be so lonely once I got the bus driver Max’s number, though.

Zoe actually asked me to let her know which stop was hers. None of my riders talked to me unless it was to get out of paying the fare. This one did. She was tall, pretty, and looked upset. So I gave her my number. Never expected her to call. But she did, and I brought her home, and then…I helped her feel better. 

But her father got well and she wasn’t planning to stay. She was ready to go off on her next adventure when all I wanted was for her to remain in Los Angeles—for me. I hugged her, let her get on a plane…and now all I have to do ispersuade her to come back to me. Convincing a woman with wanderlust, that’s not going to be easy.

 Although best known as an author of crime novels like the Dr. Siri and Jimm Juree series, Colin Cotterill is also an accomplished artist and illustrator. He has designed many book covers for other authors and this new book of cartoons allows you to perhaps see a little bit more into how his mind works.

From Colin: The premise to this book is simple. What if, since the beginning of time, and a few weeks before, every living creature had access to a cell phone? What if every human, real and fictional, famous, infamous and unknown, every animal, fish, insect, deity and US president was in a position to take an instant snap of their defining moments? What if the very act of taking those photos was, in itself, responsible for their demise? This book is not all about death although death is the pervading theme. I'm a mystery writer so it's unavoidable. I've been making money out of murder for a while. Dying isn't funny. We'll, yes, sometimes it is. But, at least it should be thought provoking.

The way to best enjoy this collection is to not only suspend your disbelief but to embrace it. In these pages, insanity prevails and I ask you to bask in its ridiculousness. My publisher said it took him several days to understand all the pictures. I think he meant it as a complaint whereas I saw it as success. We live in an instant world where everything is on tap and you don't have to think anymore. Take your time with this collection. Look up the names and the dates. It could be a research project for your kids. They probably won't learn anything useful but they'll notice things. Eventually, they'll get it. These are cartoons. Cartoons aren't meant to change your life. It's all about having a chuckle here and there, a nod or two, an 'aha' of realization, an 'ahh' of sympathy, an 'unh' and empathy.  

But most of all, I want you to pay for the download and not get it free from some cheapskate. That would make me happy and get the dogs fed.
