The Arrogant Author
17 February 2016 | by pattersonrosSee all my reviews

Whenever you hear that someone has been murdered, you like to think that maybe it was for the inheritance through a will or something. While investigating the murder, we find that writer Julian Buck had quite a few enemies/people with a motive to do him in; the list includes Terry-Thomas, Rita Moreno, Ed Begley, Karl Boehm, Corinne Calvet, and Keenan Wynn.

Marissa Mathes, Rita Moreno, and Rebecca Welles are still alive.

Burke's Laws: "You can't solve a murder without first finding a suspect." "Never call your captain unless it's murder." "Never punch driver in nose; see how big first."
