The Poisoned Martini – VI

It’s time for Part VI of The Poisoned Martini, an original eStory written by yours truly.  With the introduction of Thaddeus Alcott in the last installment, the focus of the story begins to shift.  To protect his grandson, Thaddeus will investigate a murder…

Recent college grad Rick Gray met an intriguing and pretty co-ed who invited him to a party at her sorority.  The next morning, Rick woke up and discovered a young co-ed dead in the bed beside him.  He fled the scene and went to his grandfather’s house where he’s been staying since graduating college.

Thaddeus Alcott had seen that look before.  The nervous, involuntary shifting of the eyes.  The facial muscles trying too hard to maintain a façade of calm.  The slight trembling of the hands.  Subtle signs of guilt.

His voice suddenly hoarse, Thaddeus whispered, “What have you done?”
