One of the most delightful parts of writing this book was in playing with character tropes.  When faced with the introduction of Officer Krum (a.k.a. The Cookie Cop of Ralston’s Cookie Crisp cereal), I knew I had to use the hard-bitten cop “voice-over” so over-used in fiction, TV and film.  He’s the world-weary cop who’s seen it all and who maybe should’ve retired years ago.

And we also get to see his eternal nemeses, the Cookie Crook and Chip the Cookie Hound, in action.
