In the third chapter of the very bad book I have finally finished, the detective is told ‘Something terrible happened when the dentist lived in Des Moines.’ Then the detective totally forgets to look into the ‘something terrible’ until 250 pages later. Of course, the ‘something terrible’ is the key to the whole mystery. So now I think the two countries that made the book an International Bestseller are Bangalla and Bezerkistan.
One thought on “STUPID AND STUPIDER”
I just read a novel in which a seemingly off-hand comment about something that happened in the past was ignored until much later in the book and it, too, proved pivotal to solving the central mystery. The book is currently (barely) in Amazon’s top 1,000 for all books.
