Eric Jerome Dickey died three days ago. I found out last night.
My mother had one of his books -- one of the ones with the animated covers -- and that's how I first knew about him. I didn't follow his work much, but I read A Wanted Woman on audiobook at the time it came out. That was about six years ago.
The story wasn't bad. It was even a little edgy, especially the language. A couple of things about the book (well, the audiobook) that stuck with me were the repeated references to "the Kiwi" -- the main character -- and the narration. Zoë Bell performed some of the best voice-over work I ever heard in fiction, and Eric Jerome Dickey authored its script.
He was 59.
