After reading Maureen Corrigan's review in the Wash Post this am, I want to read "The Shanghai Moon" by S.J. Rozan. After relating her own failed attempt to write a Nancy Drew book, Corrigan hooked me with:
"Rozen's Lydia Chin is a private investigator very much in the Nancy mold (that is, if Nancy were grown up and Chinese American)...Despite her longings, however, ladylike Lydia keeps Bill at a chaste distance,allowing only the kind of hugs that Nancy Drew would permit from Ned Nickerson."
Looks like fun - it's on the reading list. (BTW - Did Nancy and Ned EVER kiss?)
