I just got an email from a reader who GOT IT. !!!! She got to the end, twigged as to what was happening and then read back and spotted some of the clues in a delighted excited rush. She knows who she is so I won’t mention her by name, but I’m SOOO delighted. Nine Planets is just a thriller in disguise waiting for keen attentive readers to look beneath the disguise to see the hidden story.
Read it. I dare you.
