Just started reading Sleeping Beauties. Got confused on pp 24-25 as to how Truman went from wearing "cowboy boots and boxer shorts" "and nothing else" to "feeling the grip of the Bowie knife tucked into his belt" as Eve squeezed his throat after he opened the door, just seemingly seconds later. Did anyone else catch this? What am I missing?

I always wear a belt with my boxer shorts. ;-D

It's very hard to find boxer shorts with belt loops.

lol... I'm still giggling :) I don't keep up with most of the threads... Is Joe always this funny? :rofl:


I emailed all the appropriate parties and was told this had been caught by someone else a couple weeks ago and an edit will be in future printings--that may not be until the paperback edition comes out, though.
Edit as in mentioning that Truman's boxer shorts had belt loops and he wore a belt with his shorts?
