Excerpt from Alexander Steele Death on the Delaware
A short Story from the Alexander Steele Murder Mystery series
"The gray-haired retiree had no idea that she would soon feel a different chill, one she would never forget. As she walked along the frozen dirt path Gladys began to bark. Mrs. Ferguson looked in the same direction as the little black dog. Dawn was breaking. It was difficult to see. She squinted as she peered towards the water. Gladys tugged on her leash causing her master to leave the path and tread closer to the river.
Mrs. Ferguson caught a glimpse of something floating in the murky water. An old rotten log she, though. The elderly woman’s curiosity had gotten the better of her. She inched closer to get a better look. Seconds later Mrs. Ferguson screamed so loud she could have woke up the dead……….well almost.
