Welcome to Mysteries to Die For.I am TG Wolff and am here with Jack, my piano player and producer. This is a podcast where we combine storytelling with original music to put you at the heart of mystery, murder, and mayhem. Some episodes will be my own stories, others will be classics that helped shape the mystery genre we know today. These are arrangements, which means instead of word-for-word readings, you get a performance meant to be heard. Jack and I perform these live, front to back, no breaks, no fakes, no retakes (unless it's really bad)This is Season 1. This season comes from my book Widow’s Run, which was published in 2019 by Down & Out Books. If you love clever, sharp-edged mysteries and thrillers, check out Down & Out on the web. www.downandoutbooks.comToday’s episode builds from the previous.

We’ve listed a cast of characters in the show notes to help keep track of the players.To recap, our hero, Diamond, has faked her death, burying the mainstream, suburban professional she was to resurrect her CIA cover. Why? She needs to do what the police won’t, investigate her husband’s death. In the last episode, Diamond discovers the money behind Gavriil’s death was a woman going by the name Chrysanthemum. Andrew Dix and Ian Black use video footage from a security camera to put a face with the name. Dr. Quili Lui. Today’s story is about tying up loose ends and just desserts.

Having grown-up in the rarified atmosphere of the well-born of Roalton, Tennessee, Thorwait must now confront the fact of his birth-mother’s Appalachian heritage—and he goes in search of her, and her meaning.As he discovers more details about the Morelock family around Glade, Thorwait finds they have been involved, for generations, in moonshine, and, more recently, drug traffic, throughout the area, reaching back to Roalton, Tennessee, itself. Engaged in digging-up the past, Thorwait finds himself inexorably drawn into present-day passions, pent-up violence, and crime. Carolina Blood is now available through Down & Out’s website, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, indiebound, and all your favorite independent booksellers. www.downandoutbooks.com******That’s it for this episode of Mysteries To Die For and it also concludes Season 1.

She drops in on Irish, collecting the bounty herself, but this is not class reunion. A drink at a bar has Diamond and Irish diving for cover.

She murders the elderly, seeing it as compassion against their suffering. The police can’t curb her ritualized, angel of mercy rampage and as every new victim falls, the distance between the police and her increases. Then the killer is caught in the act by the young, pregnant wife of Norm Braden. There is no option but to murder her too. As a widowed Norm struggles to return to his family, to his new normal, he is joined in grief by his wife’s twin sister. But, the killer is also having a difficult time recovering from the startling break in her ritual. Killing Norm’s wife has affected everything.So, one day she visits Norm, offering an olive branch. Maybe they can help each other move past it all. Their co-dependent, cat-and-mouse game begins. Revenge is within Norm’s grasp, but his religious beliefs force him to see the killer’s humanity despite her horrific shortfalls. The killer, a strange and exotic woman with a singular fixation on Norm, thinks she has found more than just the solution to her problems. She’s found her completion, her other half—if only she can replace the memory of his dead wife. If she can do that, she can continue murdering.Together They were Crimson is now available through Down & Out’s website, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, indiebound, and all your favorite independent booksellers. .******That’s it for this episode of Mysteries To Die For. In two weeks, we’ll pick up the story with the next chapter That’s SWAT I Call Awesome.If you enjoyed our twist on storytelling, help spread the word by telling a friend or leaving a review.
