Ed Tejaabout this book: Not every crime is a mystery, even if the truth never becomes clear, officially determined. And some crimes, possibly evolve from other crimes. Before a person can be blackmailed, they have to do something they want kept hidden. Blackmailing might cause the victim to be the perpetrator of another crime. Surely that is no mystery.
Even a murder might be confused with something else, something unfortunate that makes perfect sense to the authorities. This is a story of such a crime.
This is a short story that explores such a chain of events. There is nothing to solve here... and in that sense it isn't a mystery. But there is the unfolding of things, the natural and seamless way that things evolve.
I wrote this story after reading news items about several suspicious deaths. The offical explanations struck me as mundane and dull. After pondering alternative story lines for the events I came up with several that turned out to be far more sinister, far more interesting. But the cases are closed, the evidence stored in boxes in some police warehouse. Who is to say which story, mine or the official version, was actually closer to the truth?
