Great and Grave Questions for American Politicians, With a Topic for American´s Statesmen (Classic Reprint): Walter William Broom
Murder has come once more to the seaside town of Crab Cove, testing the mettle of ´´almost handsome” Detective Simon Grave and his ´´nearly invisible” partner, Sergeant Barry Blunt, who investigate a locked-room mystery with a significant twist: the prime suspects are in the locked room, not the victim, a logic-defying situation that challenges the team at every turn. As if murder weren’t enough, they must also investigate the simultaneous disappearance of The MacGuffin Trophy from that same locked room, the studio of artist Whitney Waters, famous for her stylized paintings of red herrings. Who is/are the killer(s)? How did he/she/they get out of the locked room with the trophy, kill the victim, and return unnoticed by others in the room? These and other questions, including the limits of logic and the meaning of life, are posed and perhaps even answered in this quirky, near-future mystery. Yes, there are robots. 1. Language: English.

Dan Edwards was getting sick and tired of everybody dying around him and having to attend so many funerals. One night, while he was lying in bed watching TV and daydreaming, he said aloud, ´´I wish there was a place where there were no graves.´´ So he immediately got out of bed, sat down at the computer, and searched for hours. Then just as he was about to give up he got lucky. There was a small island barely on the map that never buried their dead. Dan just had to find out for himself if this was too good to be true, so he got on the next flight the next morning. Dan boarded the plane, put on his headphones, and listened to Drac Von Stoller´s audiobooks on the way to his destination. The plane finally landed after 13 hours, Dan removed his headphones and looked out the window in the plane and said ´´Wow! This island is beautiful. I can´t wait to get off this plane, meet these wonderful people, and ask them why there are no graves anywhere on the island.´´ Dan stepped off the plane and was greeted by a tour guide, so he wouldn´t be lost and have to find things on his own. Dan boarded a bus for his tour of the island. The tour was very interesting and helpful, but Dan still wanted to know what happens when their loved ones die. Dan tapped the tour guide on the shoulder and said ´´Could I ask you a question.´´ ´´Sure!´´ replied the tour guide. ´´If someone dies what happens to their body?´´ Then all of a sudden the bus swerved avoiding a collision with an animal crossing the buses path. Dan lost his train of thought so the tour guide didn´t get to answer his question... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ted Brooks.
