"This is murder," Lindsay Gordon complained, leaning back in her chair and putting her feet up on the desk. "I can't bear it when there's nothing doing. Look at us. Eight p.m. on the dynamic newsdesk of a national daily. The night news editor's phoning his daughter in Detroit. His deputy's straining his few remaining brain cells with the crossword. One reporter has escaped to the pub like a sensible soul. Another is using the office computer to write the Great English Novel..."
"And the third is whingeing on as usual," joked the hopeful novelist, looking up from the screen. "Don't knock it, Lindsay, it's better than working." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
