Deadly Error

by Jan Hurst-Nicholson
Originally published by on 07/04/2017

The bestselling author was now frail and aged, but still producing books. Her only relative, a niece, moved in to help the old lady.

Three months later the author was found dead, an empty bottle of painkillers beside her. It seemed she had committed suicide. To support this theory the niece produced a suicide note typed on the author’s aged typewriter. On reading it the detective arrested the niece.

The note contained the phrase ‘I’m afraid my latest titel won’t sell.’

The niece was a child of the computer age. Unfortunately for her there is no spellcheck on a typewriter.
