Myrtle pits her sleuthing skills against her police chief son's to find the killer....if the killer doesn't find her first.

He crashed to the floor in a heap and Myrtle quickly stooped and picked up the knife with shaking hands and backed up to the telephone to call Red. Pasha looked at the unconscious Simon curiously.
