Patrick in New Mexico and Norm "Uriah Robinson" in Devon were the first with the correct answer that Dave White's novel When One Man Dies
, featuring private investigator Jackson Donne, takes its title from John Donne's "Devotions upon Emergent Occasions":
"When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language."
They each win a copy of When One Man Dies.
Norm also knew which other Shamus Award-nominated novel took its title and its protagonist's name from the work of an English poet: Richard Aleas' Songs of Innocence, featuring investigator John Blake. He wins a copy of Dave White's newest novel, The Evil That Men Do (title from Shakespeare).
