Neal Black's first day of retirement could've gone better. It began with Neal shot in the chest and left for dead.

Now, after decades of bringing hundreds of the nastiest elements of South City to justice, Neal is back on his feet with no leads and only a stray black cat that refuses to leave his apartment. Who would want Neal Black dead? A better question might be: who wouldn't?

In Nine Lives Lost, Neal is at the service of the most endangered and murcurial client he's ever had. Himself.

The gripping finale to Crime By The Numbers

Ten names, all sure to be dead in forty-eight hours.

When a full-page ad is taken out in the South City Chronicle with the names of ten citizens, none connected, and three already dead, it's clear to the city of 1.5 million what is going to happen to the last seven.

Closing out Richard Sturgeon's decalogue of thrills, Neal Black has two more jobs to do: find the killer and save South City from itself. Making his task even harder is the final name printed in the paper: his own.

Ten to One is the climax that readers deserve and a fitting end to a fifteen years of Neal Black mystery.

Too bad they're not real books except for the Jane Ayre one you can find. I'd read 'em all.

I did not know you could use the top shelf too. Maybe that is for the better as I saved myself a lot of time thinking my bookshelf was full and just leaving the rest of the books where I found them.

I couldn't shake the feeling that there was something you could do with the Crime By Numbers series. Line them all up on your bookshelf? Is that even possible?

I find it very interesting that I never noticed the link between the book 'The Singular Mind', a book apparently about the "power of an isolated psyche" that is appropriately located in Two Forks, and the game's themes of solitude and its effect on the mind.

I forgot to mention it earlier, but Glory's blurb has been updated thanks to developer Jake Rodkin, who helped me out with some of the bits that were difficult to read/transcribe.
