Ariana Franklin died earlier this year.
How did I miss that?
I wish I still didn't know.

I am so sad that she died. I was really enjoying her series and kept waiting for a new book to be announced and then someone told me she was ill. Next thing I heard she was ill...

I know, it's devastating every time I think of it. I haven't read the most recent Mistress of the Art of Death novel, and now I can't bring myself to, because I've heard that it ends on an unhappy (or unsatisfactory) cliffhanger, and there might never be another....

I'm gutted! I love the series and the last book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger. How sad that such a marvelous talent is no longer with us.

Fortunately no tears, just bewilderment and acute disappointment. Thank you for your concern. I did a lot of sanitized swearing as I was at the front desk at work. All I could think was 77 is not really old and "no more Mistress of the Art of Death?"

I was distressed to hear that as well a couple weeks ago. I don't know how I didn't notice that earlier in the year. I am disappointed to not be able to read any more Mistress books.
