Murder Is But A Memory


I had a date to meet with Kerri. I was going to tell her what I had uncovered, which wasn't much. Harrigan dropped me off at the Seaside Inn on Route 101 in Santa Monica. That's where I stashed Kerri.

I told Harrigan I would keep him abreast of things, not true but I wanted to say "abreast," and went to Kerri's room, lucky number 7.

I knocked on the door and I heard a plaintive voice say, "Who's there?"

"Humphrey Bogart, shweetheart," I said playfully.

I heard a giggle as she opened up the door. I couldn't breathe again...

    'Just wanted to say abreast'...cheeky; love it...great stuff. Sounds like some serious love interest for Randolph, but probably doomed! Can't wait! Thanks Christopher.

    Thank you, Neville. Who knows what fate has in store for those two? (Besides me!)
