The book I'm currently reading is proving rather mind-blowing.  It's a simple enough roman policier, as the French would say (I think).  In other words, it can be found under "Crime" on the library shelves.  What makes it a bit weird is that so many of the characters have names from my family.  There are my (late) mother, my elder son's ex-mother-in-law, my younger son's first wife, my daughter and her partner, a cousin's husband, another cousin's daughter.  Even our one-time cat gets a name check, even though he has metamorphosed into a human being!
