Reviews for TCOT Midlife Crisis
Salysha chapter 1 . 9/11/2012
As I reached the last line, I still kept expecting Della to be there! I figured she'd left the earring as a bait and as waiting for Perry to catch up, silently watching as he indulged in a few drinks. But no Della - only Perry who's picked up through silent introspection and remembered who he is: a man won't go down without a fight.

Some lines I liked particularly: "talent for subtle censure" (ooh, very nice!) "mated glasses" - "visceral response" - "transition from seedy to purposeful." This was done with a good touch, and the air was definitely contemplative, even mournful. Fluent work! T.B.C. in TCOT Another Chance?

He better just go get her. Got the infamous earring, one of those she's always losing. Do continue on with this.:)

This promises to be a very good story. One that I will certainly be following.

Very well done Capt :-) You definitely have a way with words! I'm looking forward to him making it right!

My fave line was: "Still dumbstruck by her appearance and more than a little threatened by his own visceral response to it, he managed only marginal participation in the verbal intercourse."

Very nice way to say "practically speechless!" LOVE it! :-)

I am so happy to see a new story from you. It's been far too long! This is wonderful. It really gives us another insight to what happened after Della is aquitted and the answer as to why she wore "that God-awful dress"...The cranberry dress sounds gorgeous! No wonder he was speechless when he saw her in it and, as always, Della Street is the only woman Perry Mason will ever love. They belong together and I hope that will happen in the next chapter so please, please hurry and post it.

Nicely done as always. :)
