"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

“She reached inside her blouse to reposition a bra strap …”
“…crossed her arms, pushing her black bra and its mounded contents into sight…”
“…leaned in, her breasts and white bra showing…”
“… and more active breasts than Lauren Bacall…”
“…and crossed her arms, elevating her cleavage…”
Nora is quite developed, it seems, and likes to cross her arms a lot. She also owns many different bras. I’ve heard of breastworks but I thought that term referred only to military fortifications. It appears that it can also refer to bad novels. I’ve been known to dump on female mystery writers who spend half the book describing their heroine’s outfits. Bishop does the same thing with the undergarments … and their mounded contents. As a retired FBI agent, I can attest that Bishop knows zero about blackmail or law enforcement.
Jack McCall is a former U.S. agent who is now a partner in McCall Investigations with Nora, a former police officer. Jack has been away investigating whether the hit and run death of his wife, Rachel, could have been because of his past employment. He returns to the apparent suicide of a good friend and psychiatrist, Chris Anduyar. Chris' death has been ruled a suicide, but his wife believes he was being blackmailed. If that was true, the blackmailer would be guilty of murder. Jack and Nora take the case and begin to pull threads, knowing it could be as ruled, a simple suicide. Then Jack is attacked and badly beaten. And the theory of blackmail becomes much more probable.
David Bishop has a way of injecting humor in what could otherwise be an ordinary mystery. His talent adds a fresh note to the genre, and I had a good time reading this book. I highly recommend it.
It's elementary, David. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship ... okay, a delightful reading experience. (With apologies to Sherlock and Rick....)
