When Eddie Mayford was killed, everyone was shocked. Eddie was the nicest one in our entire town and now he was dead. Dead and nobody knows why. The police released a statement of ‘no comment’ so I know that must mean there is something going on they don’t want the public to know. I have been in love with Eddie since I was five years old and I am determined to find out what happened to him even if the police won’t tell. I knew it couldn’t be anything good if they were keeping the information about his death so close to their chest.
I often pretended to be Harriet the Spy growing up so I didn’t have any qualms about snooping and knew how to flatter those around me just enough so I could get information. I have always been told I am beautiful and have used this to my advantage in the past. The benefit of having lived in Pryor most of my life, I know many of the police officers who are assigned to Eddie’s case. The newest and (hopefully) shining star of the police force, Johnny Stout, is a newly promoted detective as well as newly single. He lives in the apartment complex down the street from me and I intend to accidentally bump into him this afternoon when I get home from work. I need to learn quickly about who I can enact my revenge on. Before it’s too late and they find me first.
