Looking to the Future
from Peg Cochran's Murder, She Reported Series
New York City, where I live, is buzzing with excitement. The 1939 World's Fair has just opened! It's a peek into all things future--nylon stockings for women, air conditioning, which will be heavenly in NYC in the summer, talking robots, the city of tomorrow.
Ralph--that's Ralph Kaminsky, veteran reporter for the Daily Trumpet, and I are heading out there on the subway this afternoon. Supposedly there's been a robbery and the editor wants the story.
I hope to get a glimpse of some of the attractions although my friend Irene Nowack and I plan to go back on the weekend and do it up right.
Looking back now, I have to shake my head. I had no idea we'd be on the scene when a body was found--in the pool at Billy Rose's Aquacade no less! It was great timing and wonderful luck for us. We scooped every paper in town.
**The editor wants us to stay on top of the story. I wonder if we will solve the murder before the police?
Would you like to have a peek into the future?
**Find out more in Murder, She Encountered due out in December 2019! or catch up with Biz and Kaminsky in Murder, She Uncovered.
