The Domino Conspiracy
from the Costume Shop Mysteries
by Diane Vallere
*****CONTEST IS CLOSED! Congrats, Sue Leis!*****
There's something fishy going on in Proper City, Nevada, and I'm not talking about the specials at Catch-22. I'm talking about who killed Ronnie Cass, the lead dancer for the Domino Divas, and why everybody in this town is pointing the finger at me. Ronnie and I are old news--have been for decades. Sure, I loved her once, but that was a lifetime ago. That was back before Elvis "died." (I don't believe for a second that Elvis is dead. Between you, me, and the lamp post, I'm pretty sure he's still fighting the drug war as an undercover agent working for the DEA, but I don't want to be the one to blow his cover.)
Back to the case. I've read everything about Ronnie's death I could get my hands on, and considering my role as watchdog in the community, I've got sources that would have made Agent Fox Mulder jealous. And every time something new comes to my attention, I call the local police and tell them what I know. It's the job of the police to investigate leads. I can't help it if I turn up more in a day than most people could find in a year. Just because some of my theories sound a little out there doesn't mean they're not true.
The only people who are willing to help me are my best friend Jerry and his daughter, Margo. I know Jerry doesn't like it when Margo puts herself in danger, but this time he--well, I can't really tell you what he's doing about it. Let's just say we're working together in ways nobody expects until I can expose the truth. I'm not going to be the object of a conspiracy. No way. If the police aren't willing to dig into the evidence I keep finding for them, then there's only one thing left for me to do: Contact Oliver Stone. He worked wonders with the information I gave him on the JFK assassination. I'm sure he'd be interested in the Domino Conspiracy taking place right here in Proper City.
