Detective Marsh leaned forward. “Are you sure?”

    I’m not sure that her being blind or a psychic were doing much work in this. You could eliminate both details and the story would be unchanged. But perhaps this is an excerpt from a longer work

    I’m not sure it would stand up in court, I hope she picked the right one, or an innocent man will find himself in a lot of bother!


  3. Dear Shirley,

    A blind psychic picking the perpetrator’s photo? Hm. They might want to find more evidence. Intriguing story. You left me wanting to know more.

    I suspect her attacker let her live because she was blind and couldn’t tell. How wrong he was – he might not be convicted for attacking her but if the police suspect him of the other crimes/murders – well justice will follow.
    Clever story.


  5. I believe her, but will a jury I wonder? Hopefully, this is one more link in a chain of evidence. Nice one Shirley.

    Here’s my story
