"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.

Midori plays and teaches violin, and she likes sushi. She's single but there is a Danish man who is interested. She's from Vancouver, where the tale is set. Unfortunately the Dane had argued with the late cellist and the police are very interested in the pair of them. Midori doesn't want to think the maestro could be involved, but if he is she might be in danger. Then she starts receiving harassment like a break-in. In theory this is exactly what a killer would not do, because every crime scene means more potential clues for the police. But there is more than one unsavoury issue.
Classical music fans will enjoy the regular name dropping about composers, concertos and symphonies. The book tends to dialogue rather than strong action and the minutiae of lives are explored in the search for the killer. The mystery is on the cosy side and suitable for teen readers if they choose.
I was sent an ARC for unbiased review.
Life is good for Midori Bishop, a violinist with the Point Grey Philharmonic Orchestra. Her relationship with the handsome and charismatic maestro, Hans is moving forward, and the renovations of the Abrams Center are almost complete.
After Midori discovers the strangled body of Jeremy Ralston, a cellist with more enemies than friends, suspicion falls on Hans. Earlier in the evening, Midori witnessed the two arguing, but she cannot believe that Hans is a murderer. Determined to prove his innocence and point the police towards the real killer, Midori starts asking questions – questions that point her towards the killer, and make the killer aware of her. If Midori isn’t careful, her investigation may mean its curtains for her.
While Midori may be clueless in love, she is good at asking questions. It is easy to understand how difficult it is for her to leave the investigating to the police, particularly once she has begun. Her actions are believable, if at times rash.
Dead Ringer is an entertaining cozy with just the right amount of suspense. It is a great choice for reading on a lazy summer afternoon.
