Michael Brown's Mom

Is/Was in a no-win situation. I really feel so sorry for her.

Michael disappointed her.

She was so proud of his starting school, his first year of college. A miracle.

Even if he hadn't been killed, the robbery would have prevented his starting school, at least not at this time.

She was in for a broken heart even if he hadn't been killed.

Raising him to have graduated and accepted at a college was no easy feat for this woman and her husband. She must feel her whole life has been wasted...

I have so much sympathy for those parents.

A CORPSE IN THE KORYO (2006) by James Church

First in the series about "Inspector O" - takes place in current day Pyongyang, capital of Korea. They have a police force that solves crimes, murders, etc., just as we have even tho they are communists, but they have a lot more "red" tape. Lots of different bureaucracies make investigating dangerous, not to mention, it makes confusing reading. (Please bring back Spellcheck)

Interesting, but I had to read up on Korean history in Wikipedia a bit to understand what's going on. I'm enjoying it.

James Church is a pseudonym of a former US intelligence agent.
