As you know by now, I don’t just write a murder scene and have the characters begin to solve it. That’s typical of a one-hour TV series episode. My approach is more like a rollercoaster ride, we’re going to get to the end, but, in between, you’re going to experience a few twists and turns. Having said that, The Case of the Antiquities Collector, the main plot was dropped in my lap by a good fri...
