Dear All,

Thank you to everyone who has contributed advice. This is the third group that I've asked, and all three are astonishingly consistent: 'The Improbable Remains' wins. It wasn't what I was expecting, but I think I've got to listen.

I do like the ambiguity in the phrase: is 'remains' a verb or a noun? And I have noticed that recently detective novels seem to using more and more allusive, vague titles. In fact, there have been a couple I've read where at the end of the book I'm still thinking 'but what did that title mean?'.

I'm still picking away at editing. I'd like to finish this month, but I'm not sure.

improbable wishes,

N.

You should post your cover, when it's done. I'm curious about the eventual use of the title in the cover artwork and whether your cover artist will also use allusion or not.

Sounds like it was written by Enid Blyton!

I doubt Enid Blyton would have used the word "campus".

Thank you for the suggestion, Crich. but in some ways I'd prefer to come out of the 'detective story' genre. 'The Improbable Remains' is nicely ambiguous.
