Of All the Gin Joints

“Bloody hell Edwards, where are you?”
The literary terrorist had escaped her capture and the plot hole was beyond repair without him. In a drastic twist, she conjured up a copper.
“When was the last time you saw the subject?” the constable asked.
“Chapter 13, but he always comes back by 17.”
“Do you recall anything suspicious?”
“Now that you ask, yes, he was wearing a fez.”
“A boozer, eh?”
“Quite the contrary. You Sir are in a Victorian romance and Mr. Edwards is never in his cups.”
“So you say but I’ll still check all the gin joints in all the world?”

  1. As if writing a novel wasn’t hard enough without that dastardly Mr Edwards causing mischief all over the place 🙂

  4. Seems I recall one of Mr. Edwards previous adventures. Literary terrorist is a tough job. Fortunately, no one has ever labeled my writing as being “literary” even though some of my stories have been known to bomb.

    It didn’t realize until today (I’m a little slow) that you had another blog. The recipes sound delicious. 🙂

  5. Love the quote from Casablanca… I guess in the end you have to “round up the usual suspects”

  6. This is delightful with its “plot holes” “coppers” “Chapter 13, but he always comes back by 17.” Thanks for the afternoon smile.

  7. Dear Tracey,

    i’m not sure what to do about Mr. Edwards. There’s simply no controlling him. 😉 Fun romp through the back alleys and gin joints.

  8. I agree with the others, it was a fun little romp. As I’m sure you know, it’s never lucky to have someone disappear in Chapter 13… Anyway, here’s looking at you, kid.

  11. That Mr. Edwards is just full of trouble, isn’t he? And a mystery, too, I think. A delightful read, Tracey.
