CONGRATULATIONS TO MARY WRIGHT, of Central Florida, the $1,000 winner in my THE DEVIL ORDERS TAKEOUT contest! She correctly answered the question, “How tall is Misha?” (4’ 10”). Mary’s name was drawn at random from a group of readers who had the correct answer. But I’ll admit, I was a bit sneaky when crafting that question. To answer it correctly, you needed to pick up information in the middle of the book—and at the very end.
Mary says her favorite books are mysteries, thrillers—and non-fiction. When asked how she learned about the contest, Mary jokingly said, “It pays to listen to your sister.” Mary and her sister enjoy swapping books, discussing plotlines and recommending authors to one another—and Mary’s sister tipped her off about the contest. I’m guessing that Mary will have her hat in the soup (contest)—and be a viable contender!
