Hallopalooza Time!

This weekend Jungle Red Writers is delighted to participate in a Hallopalooza, sponsored by The Stiletto Gang. If you're starting here, please go back to the Gang's blogsite to read the beginning of the Halloween mini-mystery. Then you will follow the clues on each of the blogs to solve the mystery at the end for a grand prize. You may also enter comments along the way to win other great prizes! (Right here, win signed books from the Jungle Red Writers!) Good luck and have a spooky good time...


Clue #2: "I was hoping to speak with Mr. Howard before conducting any other interviews." Milla frowned at the petite man wearing a court jester costume. He'd just informed her that G. Winston Howard was otherwise occupied.

She glanced at her notes. He was Walter Jester, possibly the victim's last dance partner. "How well did you know Miss Jordan?"

He shrugged, the tiny bells sewn on his costume tinkling. "Very well. I facilitated her work for Mr. Howard."

"Facilitated?" Milla's pen hovered over the lined page. "You mean your job was to run her errands?"

"Yes." Walter blinked several times. "I didn't mind. It paid well."

She could tell from his tone he was lying; that he had minded. He'd minded very much. "What will you do now?"

He smiled. The bells tinkled again as he answered, "Her job."

Taking a old quote that seems appropriate, "The games a foot."

Oh, boy. I hope I can figure this out. Maybe the Sherlock Holmes costume I'm wearing will help.

Killing billionaires seems to be fashionable this year. That's the theme of our annual party.

I love the line about rich people using another name for a greenhouse. Conservatory, me thinks. And I want one desperately. I have it planned in my mind: ten foot ferns, trailing vines, blooming orchids, stocked wine cellar, heated spa. Paradise.

This is great fun. Count me in!

I'm only onto my second clue but enjoying this a lot. This should be an annual thing! Have to say, love that Walter Jester is dressed like a Jester, but he's too obvious to be the killer!
