    Gr 9 Up—Two novellas follow familiar faces from These Violent Delights. In A Foul Thing, Roma and Juliette are trying to live a quiet and anonymous life as underground weapons dealers, but when Russian girls begin turning up dead, they can't look the other way. In This Foul Murder, Benedikt and Marshall are hunting a scientist when their ride on the Trans-Siberian Express is interrupted by a murder. To keep their mission on track, they convince the conductor they are investigators who can take charge of the mystery, which has more to do with their own mission than expected. Gong's novellas can't stand alone, but have the familiar banter and violence of her original duology. Readers may find this mini-duology has lower stakes than the original, maintaining the couples' happily ever after. VERDICT An additional purchase where Gong's original series is popular.
