Series description

When the series starts, Starletta "Star" Duvall is a police lieutenant in charge of homicide in Brookport, Massachusetts. Her mother, originally from Chicago, died when she was 12. Her father Leonard "Lenny" Duvall was originally from New Orleans and was a police sergeant. Captain Lewis was originally her father’s partner, unti he was killed, and later Star’s first sergeant. Star is in her late 30s, tall, dark-skinned with amber eyes that make a dramatic contrast, and very short hair. She is involved with Medical Examiner Mitchell Grant, a 6’7", basketball-loving, Harvard edicated blonde from an old-money family in Boston. He is divorced and has a teenage daughter. Mitchell’s assistant is Jason, recent graduate of the exclusive Bromleigh Academy, where he was a scholarship student. Jason has golden-brown hair, hazel eyes and very long dreadlocks.

Her partner is Sergeant Dominic Paresi. He is of Sicilian ancestry and has dark hair and startling blue eyes. He is a devoted uncle to his sister’s children. He is dating Star’s best friend Vee, whom she has known from babyhood. Vee has three children: Roland, 17, Cole 15 and her daughter Lena.

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
