“Who Shot the Smart Guy at the Blackboard?”
is the quick story about an encounter between Cassie Blondell, a federal attorney and political operative, and Derek Mainly, a newspaper reporter.
The is a fun story: quick, funny, sexy and tongue-in-cheek.
The title was suggested by Dave White, a New Jersey mystery writer (http://www.davewhitebooks.com/) at a panel run amok at this year’s NJBOOKS2017.
A sample: “Cassie Blondell stood alone in the driveway, bathed in the soft combined glow of a streetlight and house-mounted spotlights. Her hair was golden and her figure was framed so perfectly by the lights Mainly dwelled on the thought of how beautiful she was, and forgot for a moment that she really disliked him, having once ordered her staff thugs to throw him out of her office. It was something about a story that included her, a campaign donor and a missing check.”
The authors and designers alley will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
