Opening to Payback
« on: November 25, 2021, 12:39:19 AM »
Here is the opening to my next mystery.

This Oxford Hedgecock's days are numbered.


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.
