Just in time for the upcoming July 4th, here's an excerpt from "Murder, She Wrote" Murder on Parade.
Following my hometown's festivities and a picnic shared with friends, I decided a little exercise was in order. Joining me were former Cabot Cove Sheriff Amos Tupper, back for a visit, and Rick Allcott, an FBI officer, now retired, whom I had met several years ago at a crime conference.
I estimate that we’d gone almost half a mile before Amos suggested we turn back. Now, we were walking toward the Lennon-Diversified building, whose marble façade caught the moonlight, giving it an ethereal aura, like some religious temple in another part of the world, or an imposing marble government building in Washington, D.C., home of many such edifices.
