The Pharaoh Key by Preston and Child. Page 135 says, "Your knife." Knife? Did someone write knife? What a coincidence because I have a new(ish) Spyderco in my pocket.

The Madonna of the Mountains by Elise Valmorbida. I kinda like the cover. Valmorbida is an uncommon name. Let's see where she lives... London but grew up in Australia. Australia? Did someone write Australia? Last week I used some wooden matches I brought back from the end of my college semester in Perth. I've had those matches for 25 years. I did not have a Spyderco in Australia.

Island of the Mad by Laurie R. King. Mary Russell is married to Sherlock Holmes. I don't know anything about this Russell character except that King has written several novels. King lives on California's central coast. The owner of Ephraim Faience Pottery spoke at Rotary a few months ago. Ephraim opened a retail store in that area a few years ago and, when asked about real estate costs, said the prices were surprisingly uninflated. I doubt they sell Spydercos.

The Woman in the Woods by John Connolly. This is the Irish Connolly, not the California Connelly. I've read a couple of Connolly's novels. I just finished listening to a Tana French novel. French sets her books in Ireland and that woman knows what she is doing when it comes to novels. Her knowledge of pocket knives is undetermined.
