Title: Opening to Payback
Post by: BobbyS on November 25, 2021, 12:39:19 AM
Here is the opening to my next mystery.

This Oxford Hedgecock's days are numbered.

Ba-Boom.

It deafened an otherwise Sunday morning.

"Gretchen, do you know anything about this?"

"What is it?"

"It's a cheque for twenty-five thousand dollars."

"It seems like a lot of money. Maybe the bank made  mistake, and it belongs to someone else. If that's the case, then I suggest that return it." She then left.

Who would send me twenty-five thousand. Maybe it's from uncle Jack, but we're not even talking. I'll find out who the money belongs to and return it.
