Murder at the Margin: A Henry Spearman Mystery

By Marshall Jevons | Go to book overview

14

THE NEWS OF THE CONFESSIONS of LeMans and Harbley lifted the pall that had enshrouded the hotel. Many of the guests did not want to show how concerned, even frightened, they had been by the tragic events that had taken place during their stay. But the glib facade they donned only served to accentuate the great feeling of relief they actually shared. That morning there was much goodnatured banter as a number of the guests were gathering at the hotel's open-air foyer in front of the entrance to the dining room. This group was waiting for the arrival of the Park Service Ranger, who each week at this time conducted a nature walk in the Virgin Islands National Park adjoining the hotel's grounds.

Meeting that morning for the excursion was a larger crowd than usual, owing no doubt to the feeling of greater freedom the news of the jailings had brought. Among them were Mr. Jay Pruitt and his bride Pamela, Mrs. Felicia Doakes, the Spearmans, Professor Matthew Dyke, Harold and Cynthia Mullens, Dr. and Mrs. Douglas Clark, and Miss Laura Burk.

“I guess I'm no longer Public Enemy Number One!” Jay Pruitt chortled to no one in particular. He had seemed to relish being a suspect in the Decker homicide and did not want to relinquish his notoriety.
