Sitting in the main branch of the Vigo County Public Library (their WiFi connection outstrips my eensy weensy mobile phone, so they are aces when it comes to, ahem, acquiring the latest episodes of Doctor Who in a timely fashion) and someone's left a book at the table where I'm sitting. I just had to share the title and back cover synopsis:

A Murderous Yarn, by Monica Ferris

"The art of needlecraft requires patience, discipline, and creativity. So, too, does the art of detection. Just ask Betsy Devonshire--who's learning that life in a small-town needlecraft shop can reveal an unexpected knack for knitting...and a hidden talent for unraveling crime.

Heavens to Betsy Devonshire! She never intended to get so caught up in this year's antique car race. But as sponsor of one of the entrants, she can't help but keep a close eye on the outcome--and it's not pretty. One of the drivers never makes it to the finish line. His car is found exploded in flames. Now Betsy and her crafty friends must determine if it was an accident or the work of a jealous competitor. The answer may be in a piece of needlework, but pinning down a suspect won't be easy..."


Unraveling crime. Pinning down a suspect.

I don't know what I love more: the blatant use of knitting-related puns as a selling point, or the fact that the book itself comes with a free cross-stitch pattern of a car's wheel axle.
