The Chihuahua saw his opportunity and took it. What I don't get is why Bugsy didn't notice that the Chihuahua was carrying a shotgun.

Maybe he hid it under his coat.


-reads a lot-

A mark of a good detective novel writer is misguiding the reader so the denouement comes as a surprise while simultaneously realizing the clues were evident all along. To this end often spurious ‘clues’ are made further misguiding the reader. All this is done so the final chapter of the book must take place with all the book’s participants gathered together in one room while the protagonist gives a detailed explanation of all clues (real and surmised) and unveils the killer.

The Name is Marlow – no e, written by Agatha Christie under the pen name of Miky Spillaine and in the style of Dashielle Hammett with a whiff of Raymond Chandler, follows all the necessary procedurals of detective writing but for exotic locale as found in Christie’s earlier works: the potting shed. I believe she left out that location because walking a Chihuahua in one is restrictive.

I am pleased you read Marlow. Since the story has so many recs I am now editing a story in the same genre but updated. It concerns the British MI6, the US’s CIA, the Canadian RCMP and how a British agent, 006, infiltrates the present low-quality loans fiscal problem. It is titled: The name is Bond – Municipal Bond.

Look for it at a Jester Board near you.
