Riktor is a seriously disturbed loner who works as a nurse at a senior citizen home. He delights in flushing the residents' medicines down the toilet and other far crueler acts. When the police arrest him for a crime he didn't commit, although there are others he did perpetrate, Riktor is stunned. Will he be found guilty or will the authorities find out about his other crimes? In I Can See in the Dark, Fossum delves into the mind of a social misfit who's unpredictability is frightening. The book will be published in August.
I'm a librarian with a background in Reader's Advisory who left librarianship for domestic...uh...bliss.
From 1992-2003 I worked at the Downers Grove (IL) Public Library. I served on YALSA's Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults (1998-2000, chair 2000) and Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers (2001-2003, chair 2002). I wrote the article "Zap! Woosh! Kerplow! Build High Quality Graphic Novel Collections With Impact" (School Library Journal, January 1997). I am a substitute Reference Librarian at the Indian Prairie Public Library.
