Kate Ross: The French Edition

We met recently with Kate Ross’s dad and stepmother, at their home outside of Boston. Our first stop was the cemetery, to pay our respects: Readers may like to know that Kate Ross’s (large, handsome) gravestone features the profile-image of Julian Kestrel that was designed for the books’ original editions, and the phrase “Whom the gods love die young.”

After a lovely lunch, we went back to Chez Ross, where there is a complete set of the Kestrel books in all their various editions and translations. It’s nice to know that the French consider Ross one of les reines du crime (the queens of crime), but in my world, royalty gets a fancier cover. And I can’t for the life of me figure out which of the books was translated as “La Maison Sans Joie” (The House Without Joy). Any bets?
