Before winter arrives in the United States, let’s take one last shot at Summer. Take a moment to think about how a hot, humid summer night makes you feel. The evening air is so close that something feels as if it is just around the corner. Your skin is moist and almost feels as if it is someone else’s. The cicada song gets louder and feels as if it could overwhelm you. Doesn’t that sound for the perfect setting for some kind of crime?
