  1. Definitely tempted. A baby surrounded by dead bodies? I would be picking that baby up, and no doubt damaging the crime scene without a thought...

  2. Five bodies and baby? Quite a start.

  3. What a gut-wrenching beginning to a novel, Mason! It's certainly attention-getting. Thanks for sharing.
