His flight was so sudden and short, and it was for less than a second that she saw him, hair tousled, upside down, his shirt and jacket up around his chest so that his midriff was exposed. And then, striking the edge of the grand circle, he disappeared headfirst towards the stalls below."I've been reading a lot of nonfiction lately, so it's time for a novel. Occasionally, I like to read a mystery, and this one is by the author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Sounds good to me.
