Thankfully you are still writing and this story is terrific. Can you at least confirm that in the last chapter that Pauline is spying on Perry, Lorraine, and her daughter?

Laura, laura-how I dislike that snide woman. Perry should know better.

A cliff hanger will NOt suffice. Is there a follow up to this story? I do not believe I could stretch my imagination that far. Why was this criminal out of prison? What she did deserved the death penalty.
Did Perry and Della get married or did they have the baby in secret? Readers would like to know more about Perry and Della and the birth of her child.

can't believe this is a cliffhanger. i thought you were jesting. and a thought pauline was dead.
are you telling me that i won't know whether della married perry of not?

not sure if ben is the good guy or nemeses.
seems to me that someone should make a phone call before laura returns and causes big trouble.

Loved it! Great suspense, very romantic. Just wondering how they worked out the could-Della-still-work-for-Perry-as-his-wife issue.
Also, did she "use" Ben? She denies it, but did she? Is that supposed to be ambiguous for the reader?
Part of me couldn't believe she would kiss him if she were in love with Perry. Maybe vulnerability could lead to her failing to avoid his initiative-taking good-night kiss, but would she go into his house and stay there to make out with him? I know that part was important for the alibi part of the plot, and the jealousy angle, but I was unconvinced that Della would do that. Even if she likes Ben. Maybe I'd buy it if she and Perry hadn't ever acknowledged their love before this, hadn't made love. Even though they resolved to put that behind them (to preserve their working relationship, I assume) she wouldn't have stopped belonging to him in her heart enough to canoodle with Ben, I don't think...My only qualm.
I love when Perry rescues Della. That rarely happens in the TV series. Very good rendering of Perry jealous and Perry protective! One quibble: shot guns shoot shot, not bullets. The shotgun shot is in shells of specific gauges. Rifles shoot bullets of a specific caliber. Sorry to be such a fact fiend.

Holy shit... okay. This is unexpected. Very unexpected indeed.

I'd be having nightmares too - Della's been through some shocking things and pile some pregnancy hormones upon those it's a sure-fire way of getting terrible nightmares. But she's told him. In a very un-Della-esque roundabout way. She must have been so terribly worried to not just have come out with it.

Oh good she'll make it. That is a great relief and oh Perry you are good. You are a good man. I think Aunt Mae knows. And then there's a confession, all in good Perry Mason style. Well done you!

Plot twist done right. Absolutely so well done - I am in awe of you!
| kouw chapter 16 . 10/6/2015
Ghaaaaaaaaaahhh this is killing me!
| kouw chapter 15 . 10/6/2015
Okay now I am scared. This is worrying.
