    1. Not your average challenge this why not base a large part of your next crime fiction novel around the story of a disappearing camel Then set it in a Victorian seaside town, with some tenuous connections to a murder victim discovered along the Murray Luckily Dorothy Johnston seems to be made of stern stuff and great skill as she has taken this most unlikely scenario and created a page turner in THROUGH A CAMEL S EYE that, frankly, was a standout read.Introducing two new characters local man, long [...]
