My cousin, Frankie Neutron, is dead. I’d suspected as much, of course. The letter he wrote me that started ‘Hi Johnny, if you read this, I am most probably dead...’ was one clue.

The other was when I was arrested for his murder. While frequent Fentanyl and Absinthe neural injections did make my memory a little hazy at the best of times, I was almost 100% sure it wasn’t me.

After all, he died on Tuesday and it was an old Wishbone family tradition not to kill people on a Tuesday. Frankie knew this. Ergo I couldn’t have killed him.

    Thank you, Amphituber and everyone who has said generous things. You are all going to heaven. Or Devon. Whichever is nearest.
