By the Killer Who Wishes to Remain Anonymous
From Treacherous Toys
By Joyce and Jim Lavene
I don't have long to talk.
Lady Jessie Morton has been snooping around, as usual, trying to figure things out. She wasn't even supposed to be here over the holidays. She usually comes to Renaissance Faire Village and Marketplace over the summer hiatus from the university. Not for Christmas.
She's here to help the toymaker in his workshop. How sweet! She'll have a hard time doing that with him in the grave, which is where I mean to send him! I'll lay her out right beside him if she doesn't leave me alone.
All of this forces me to sneak around the Faire, but I'm good at blending in. I know my way around, you see. She won't find me an easy catch.
The Village is filled with lighted windows and singers wandering the cobblestones with their merry tunes. There is even snow falling from the castle every hour! A perfect Christmas postcard for our visitors.
I have to go.
That bloody Lady Jessie and the Bailiff Chase Manhattan might be on to me.
But I have a few tricks up my sleeve that they won't see coming!
