EDITORIAL REVIEWS


Product Description
It is early January, 1929. This is the twenty-second Cyrus Skeen detective novel. It covers the time after Skeen has married Dilys Jones, his intrepid and lovely secretary, and after he has formed close friendships with Mickey Kane, Lieutenant Raggio, and Lieutenant Donovan. Sergeant Hieronymus, his ally in Beginnings, will be making a parting appearance. Linda Bolding, Lucy Wentz, and Clara Reyes, who figure largely over the next twenty cases, have yet to appear as his secretaries. Dilys is settling into her new life with Cyrus. While he has afforded her every comfort, luxury, and advantage imaginable, she still regards herself now as his slave, as his concubine, and she does not mind it in the least. In Reciprocity, Skeen investigates the kidnapping of the wife and teenage son of Keith Plouffe, a wealthy manufacturer with homes in Pacific Heights and the coastal town of Pacifica. But Skeen senses there is something wrong about the crime, and the deeper he digs into it, his life becomes imperiled. Skeen wonders now if the kidnapping was a real crime.

#509 Anisogamy: The Beginning of Male and Female
This week we discuss how the sperm and egg came to be, and how a difference of reproductive interest has led to sexual conflict in bed bugs. We'll be speaking with Dr. Geoff Parker, an evolutionary biologist credited with developing a theory to explain the evolution of two sexes, about anisogamy, sexual reproduction through the fusion of two different gametes: the egg and the sperm. Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
