I have Iris, the main character, on the blog today and I asked her to say the first thing that comes into her mind when I say a particular word. It's actually fun and if you've read The Girl is Murder (which you should!) you'll understand her answer better.
Character Word Associations: Iris

Iris Anderson and her father have finally come to an understanding. Iris is allowed to help out at her Pop's detective agency as long as she follows his rules and learns from his technique. But when Iris uncovers details about her mother's supposed suicide, suddenly Iris is thrown headfirst into her most intense and personal case yet.
