This incredible e-mail came through on Marg’s iPhone shortly after Angelo had spotted Colonel Tom on the river-bank in France. Marg was both puzzled and annoyed about this as she had never had any “art” as grotesque as the two pictures Hillary had forwarded. Marg called Hillary, who was also mystified, and reported they had been delivered the previous day in a large white van. Leaving Colonel Tom with Angelo in France, Marg caught the next flight to London, to investigate.

Arriving home, Marg was greeted by two even more grotesque objects than she had imagined. All became clear when she had opened a huge pile of personal mail. The two objects were a legacy from the late Diamond Jack’s estate and had been shipped from the USA by the executors of his estate.

  1. Love it John! Now I wonder why he tells her to guard them…Suspenseful as usual! Thanks again for participating and I cannot wait for the next installment! Be well… ^..^

  2. Aha! We need to know more. I’m a bit concerned about Angelo’s alibi around the time of Diamond Jack’s demise. Does he have one. And who is the mysterious Colonel Tom of the river bank?

    • Choose them with care Kate! I am sure your beneficiaries will be delighted with your obviously excellent taste ~ Thanks for reading and commenting on this 🙂

  3. Hope she doesn’t have to destroy the art. We all know that art is subjective – Maybe after getting the ‘treasure’ maybe a hidden microfiche or maybe diamonds (a currency that never goes out of style 😉 … the art can be donated to where it might be better appreciated 🙂

    Thanks for your visit and kind words for my series.

      • I have always just written because I like to.
        Haven’t made a profession of it… yet 🙂

        Best to you and yours.
        At least for us spring seems to have sprung. Soon it will be time to mow the lawn again.
