Wreath for a Lady

By John Glasby

The fun times are over…

Mike Torlin takes on the job of investigating the peculiar happenings at Pete Donati’s carnival ground.

He figures it must be a straight forward case of somebody wanting to put Donati out of business, but through multiple strange occurrences, he soon realises it’s going to take a lot more work to uncover the truth…

In the final act on stage, a peculiar chicken is produced out of an egg, when a dead girl, shot with slugs from her own shooting gallery is revealed instead.

The investigation is intensified when Torlin gets targeted twice and it is made clear that somebody must think he knows too much.

Whilst trying to save himself, discover the murderer and prevent anymore killings, Torlin is at high risk, feeling no closer to the truth.

Things are made even more difficult to understand when his attempted killer is revealed and it was not on his list of suspects…

It seems that no killer can sidetrack Torlin for long however, and when the final showdown comes, he is forced to stand his ground and face up to the killer…
