MURDER AT WOLFMOON RANCH

A Murder Mystery-Romance by Sky Taylor

 

Christmas Day

The old man was dead.

The kitchen knife was dripping with fresh blood, still warm as Jack Bryant had succumbed to the Grim Reaper mere seconds ago.

What to do, what to do? It had been an accident, although the law wouldn’t see it that way. Murder - pure and simple, particularly in the small narrow-minded-thinking town of Shadowland.

There was only one thing to do - bury the body and bury it quickly. The vehicle would have to be done away with - the kitchen would need to be scrubbed from top to bottom, the murder weapon returned, but most importantly the body would need to be transferred to the ideal burial site. There was one spot that would do….perfectly…..

 

However, timing was tricky. With the impending blizzard scheduled to arrive before sunrise…..the tracks would be covered.

Yes….it just might work.

Two Months Later - Late February

Sheriff Austin Rivers narrowed his dark eyes at his two deputies as they entered the jailhouse, their entrance inviting the frigid winter temperatures into the room, Austin certain that his hat was supporting six-inch icicles by the time they wrestled the door shut.

“Sheriff,” Deputy Cletus Barns acknowledged as he scooted out one of the worn wooden chairs in front of the ancient oak desk, the legs scrapping across the floor and playing on Austin’s nerves like nails on a blackboard.

Deputy Joel Farris remained stone-faced as he slid into the chair opposite of Cletus which had ’Johnny was here’ carved into the seat. Austin had to wonder if Deputy Farris had a voice; the man had not spoken a word since his arrival to this godforsaken area of Nevada three days ago.
