Well Donne

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).
