The Loser Mysteries begin with Killing Silence, published in 2012. I’d spent several months in a very nice neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia, called The Fan. Across a main highway from the Fan’s genteel, lovely homes stood a drug store where homeless people hung out, which created a strange juxtaposition of haves and have-nots. Every day as I walked, I saw the same rag-tag group, who seemed well-acquainted with each other and the “rules” of living on the street: Hang onto your stuff, notice everything and react to nothing, and don’t bother the “normal” citizens passing by.
Thanks for contributing a post, Peg! I was fascinated by this glimpse into the lives of homeless people.
