"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.

This time James has provided us a visit to a spooky, menacing but fascinating forgotten corner of our mountain community- an abandoned amusement park with a holiday theme. The unlikely but believable cast of circus types who have taken over the park provide an engaging mystery for Promise and our friends to solve. Along the way there are Tarot cards, ancient clocks, dangerous cable cars, and European visitors with haunted pasts.
James writes with confidence and authority as she mixes the tragic and mundane of the world with elements of fantasy and what may be the supernatural. All along it's Promise McNeal's insight and sensitivity that guides us through what could almost be a David Lynch movie! I really enjoyed being taken along.
Promise is joined with a comforting base of our old friends Daniel, Susan, and Fletcher. Mix in a fascinating cast of new characters (several of them circus characters, at that). Sprinkle on Tarot cards, circus-world insights, and a may-have-happened early 1900’s event. Then spice it up with a mysterious murder (or two). It is not long before you find yourself in the middle of a great “whodoneit”!
And I always love James’s addition of the mysterious, the perhaps other-worldly realities. And the allure of a tradition of an extra sense. It adds that extra dimension of intrigue that keeps you coming back for more.
