Seeking inspiration, hack writer Hector Mortlake embarks on a journey across late 19th century Europe. He invites the people he encounters to submit short stories to a contest but soon the travellers find themselves at an isolated hotel and caught up in a series of suspicious deaths.

When the recently departed start getting up and walking around Dedley, the detectives of the Serious Crimes division are plunged into their most gruesome case so far. Meanwhile, Brough and his boyfriend hit a rough patch and Miller is laid low by a mysterious illness.

William Edgar Stafford (January 17, 1914 – August 28, 1993) was an American poet and pacifist. He was the father of poet and essayist Kim Stafford. He was appointed the twentieth Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress in 1970. Stafford was born in Hutchinson, Kansas, the oldest of three children in a highly literate family. During the Depression, his family moved from town to town in an effort to find work for his father.

William Stafford taught for thirty years at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. The book chronicles Stafford's experience as a CO and is an example of how thoroughly his gentle sense of being permeated his writing and his life. Also, Stafford's sensitivity to details shines through.

William Stafford’s most popular book is The Way It Is: New and Selected Poems.

William Stafford's biography and life story. William Edgar Stafford was born in Hutchinson, Kansas, on January 17, 1914, to Ruby Mayher and Earl Ingersoll Stafford. His master's thesis, memoirs of his time spent as a conscientious objector, was published as a book of prose, Down in My Heart (Brethren Publishing House, 1947). In 1948 Stafford moved to Oregon to teach at Lewis and Clark College. Though he traveled and read his work widely, he taught at Lewis and Clark until his retirement in 1980. His first major collection of poems, Traveling Through the Dark, was published when Stafford was forty-eight.

For me, a crucial sentence there is, 'A writer is not so much someone who has something to say as he is someone who has found a process that will bring about new things he would not have thought of if he had not started to say them.

I love William Stafford's writing and this is my favorite.

The last book of William Stafford's from Harper is perhaps not the best first book of his to read - but, as one might expect given his maturity, these poems are sparser and even more apparently simple than some of his earlier work. As always with a William Stafford book the poems range over a variety of styles and although the poems are not directly linked, as you read more of Stafford, all his work in a sense forms one whole. Perhaps more than any review it is better to offer the title poem:
Passwords
A PROGRAM OF POEMS
Might people stumble and wander
for not knowing the right words,
and get lost in their wandering?
So--should you stand in the street
answering all passwords
day and night for any stranger?
You couldn't do that.
But sometimes your words
might link especially to some other person.
Here is a package,
a program of passwords.
It is to bring strangers together.
