Genres: Mystery, Amateur Sleuth, Cozy Mystery
A Murdered Judge. A Dark Secret Silenced.
Rookie reporter James Lalonde is bored. And, he isn’t a journalist. He’s an all-round dogs-body, to editor-in-chief, Rhys Kelly.
But, his luck has finally changed.
After eavesdropping in on the morning editorial meeting, James learns he has his first-ever story. There’s one catch. If the story gets too complicated, it will be taken away from him and given to another journalist with more experience.
Sure it’s a boring interview with the soon to be sworn-in magistrate, Albert Harrington, but it finally gets him out of his six-month slump as an editorial research assistant.
He finally has a chance to prove himself.
The following day, James turns up to his interview with Albert to discover a trail of blood smeared through Albert’s house, an empty safe, the murder weapon on the floor, but no body.
Detective Anwar Khan turns up to the crime scene, puts two and two together, and believes James murdered the controversial magistrate.
Can James clear his name and write his first-ever story before his editor takes it away from him?
