Something for Nothing marked man. Too many people want him dead. T o o u t l in e t he st ory f ur t he r would be to spoil the climax of the tale, but it’s a shocker. No matter how clever a sleuth the reader considers him/herself, the author has made the title apt. “Something for Nothing” is an expensive game. The book is new, just published in June, and the publisher calls it “The Big Summer Read.” Your critic suggests that the reader slog through the first three chapters, nodding off for naps from time to time, but don’t toss it aside. You won’t want to sleep again until you’ve been as frightened as poor

blundering Martin is during his ordeal. Which he knows could be his demise. I’m not telling. Just be careful what you wish for. Highly recommended! Anne Stinson began her career in the 1950s as a free lance for the now defunct Baltimore NewsAmerican, then later for Chesapeake Publishing, the Baltimore Sun and Maryland Public Television’s panel show, Maryland Newsrap. Now in her ninth decade, she still writes a monthly book review for Tidewater Times.
