Writeup for The Amaryllis Murder Mystery
Whodunnit Mystery Series
Albert Thomas, the owner of Albert's Variety Stores, tried to take advantage of one of his young single women, Loueva Jennings, who was a clerk in his store. Unlike others before her, she stood up and got in his face and afterward ran out the door, never to return.
Thomas had earlier called on famed detective Billy Bob Thornton and his sidekick Chinaman, who only knew him as 'Weida de Zhentan,' (the Great Detective,) to come and investigate John Pilkington, his manager over the cashiers for theft. However, he was still red in the face from his anger over Loueva Jennings shutting him down, so he turned the force of his detective over to investigating her after framing her for the thefts.
However, at the close of the meeting, Billy Bob Thornton and the Chinaman refused to take the case knowing that something was fishy.
Later, they paid a visit to Loueva's apartment. Out in the hallway was a man, the Chinaman called Scarface, a convicted felon and protégé of Thomas. Earlier in the day, he had picked him up after an eight-year stay from the state prison.
The next day Billy Bob Thornton discovered a body. The victim was holding Amaryllis flowers in his hands crossed over his breast.
Billy Bob must work hard for the woman he was falling in love with, Loueva Jennings. She became the Black Rock Cove Police Department's number one suspect. He and the Chinaman must hurry and unveil the truth before Loueva pays the ultimate price.
As Billy Bob Thornton's investigation leads to Black Rock Cove's darkest corners, what will prove more dangerous… what Loueva knows of the past or what she has yet to discover?
This is the fourth installment of the Whodunnit Mystery Series chock full of suspense, mystery, and action that will keep you glued through the final pages of the story!
