Released Friday, 10th April 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
I am TG Wolff and am here with Jack, my piano player and editor. 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.
This is Season 1. The first half of the 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.com
Today’s episode builds from the previous 2. Really, you have to listen in order for the story to make sense. Start with the first episode called “What a Lovely Corpse you Have” and catch up to us. We’ll be here for you. 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, between a carjacking and a serenade, Diamond discovered the quinoa her scientist husband had locked in a bank box the day before his death. Interested is a big agriculture lobbiest, who just became suspect #1. We join her now as she is blackmailed into doing a little favor for a friend. 
Today’s story is about a cheater, disappointments, and direction. This is Episode 3: Wanted: Sophisticated Slut, Must Have Three-Inch Heels.
