Murder Is But A Memory

by

I sat at my office desk, bowling ball bag in front of me. I had asked Kerri if she'd been to the depot to see what was in the locker. She told me if she had it was before she lost her memory.

I pulled the money out, counting it twice. $250,000 even, all in thousand dollar bills, which Uncle Sam decided to stop minting in '45. The bills here were so worn they looked like they'd repeatedly gone over Niagara Falls in a fat guy's pockets.

Why would Kerri have possession of the key to a fortune like this?

    I had to laugh at "repeatedly gone over Niagara Falls in a fat guy's pockets"! This has a superb blend of intrigue and humour, nice one :)
