The year-old retired lawyer was hospitalized in London in March, and within days he was on a ventilator in intensive care. Then sons Nicky, a year-old journalist, and Sam, a year-old actor, had an idea: Maybe literature could help him and other patients.

Much later stories claim that each of three Gorgon sisters, Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa, had snakes for hair, and that they had the power to turn anyone who looked at them to stone.

Nor does the book offer anything substantial in the way of basic information on the. My new novella TURN TO STONE is half the length of an entire novel. It's the perfect opportunity to meet Jonathan Stride again as he tackles one of his most shocking cases ever.
