“How’s that new trainee cook coming along? Will there be cake for dessert tonight?”

Here is my story: a further installment of the Shark Cove tale


Roger came back in wiping his hands dry and showed Detective Inspector Stanley Grace and Detective Irene Fargo into his evidence room where he proudly displayed boxes of files arrayed in alphabetical order according to year of production. In almost no time at all, Stanley and Irene were opening boxes of files on missing persons from fifteen years ago, with more boxes going as f…
