It’s really the title that gets me. Motive: Secret Baby – it’s supposed to be dramatic, but it’s like they couldn’t think of a title, so they just lifted something off the smudged corner of the author’s brainstorming notebook. Whose motive? Whose baby? Why is the baby secret? I suppose we can infer from the picture that the man carrying the baby has the motive. But just what is he motivated to do? Carry the baby away from the stormy lighthouse where it was secretly raised to age of seven months?
Thanks, Kenneth! From now on, whenever anyone asks me to justify something, my answer will be "Secret Baby."

"Why are you shelving Bibles in the Fiction section?"
Why were you getting fatter for the last nine months and suddenly you are so slim?"
