In loving memory of my mother, A. Carman Clark. She modeled courage, tenacity, faith, and character and inspired a generation of Maine writers.
Thanks go, once again, to the Portland Police Department, and especially to Deputy Chief Joseph K. Loughlin, for all his years of advice and support and to Detective Scott Dunham, Mark Teceno and an unnamed MDEA agent.
I have been the fortunate recipient of so much good advice. Thanks to the Learning Center for the Deaf, in Framingham, Massachusetts, and all the students and staff there for their willingness to share their world and culture with me. I am indebted to Dr. Honore Weiner, for giving me a reading list and answering my questions. To Dr. William F. Hickey for his detailed information and insights.
I will never finish another book again without a nod of gratitude to Joshua Bilmes, who taught me so much about editing and rewriting. Nor can I finish a book without advice from my readers—Joe, Diane, Jack and Nancy, Brad, and my brother John Clark, the world's greatest librarian. I couldn't write without the generous support of my husband, Ken, who really likes Joe Burgess.
I have been well advised. Despite their best advice, I have taken liberties, both procedurally and geographically, and perhaps even botanically. Any mistakes are my own.
