" Stephen ! i must rejoice and open two bottles of brandy"

Rachel Bad cock made himself comfortable on his chair facing the snow covered hotel grounds .he felt London was better than Canberra .

He had just turned 21 and was in the city to celebrate the occasion . in two weeks of his stay he had made friends with Arthur Jackson who was the same age as he was.

As he was sipping his coffee he saw Jackson walking towards the cottage creating footprints on the snow.

"whats up mate" asked Rachel " you give me a mixed expression"

"Two news to be given"said Arthur " but first would you not offer me some coffee "

"ofc come in"

Rachel poured some coffee in a mug .

Arthur spoke up " First news i got a job in Wales sadly nothing related to writing and the second piece i wouldn't care to tell if i hadn't spot you with the person of whom im to speak,

patricia was in her room . She opened a box and took out something and hurriedly left.

Rachel Badcock walked back to the cottage .

"Rachel! i dont get it !"

"simple Arthur asked Friedrich for a chance and he said i can try on the first case that came up"

"lucky you"

" why only me you are coming with me"

"me?'

"yes you my dad wants a person to write his biography . He is ready to make the person an author"

"is it a deal?"

"absolutely"

"i agree"

I

[two days later]

there was a knock the door the person who opened it introduced himself as the butler Edward Strete and escorted the party consisting of badcock,jackson, inspector dove and constable pitt .

They were greeted by Franz dove spokeup " Id like to begin right away this man will be with you" and left

Franz rung the bell and ordered coffee.

"May i come in" asked Kate

"yes ma'am" said Rachel

"well it seems on one told you Mandelins got another son called Alex Carson who lives in Russia he's got a russian wife called Ashlina Petrov . He s come . He s in the library .

Oh! another might help Mandelin played with venom "

II

Alex and Patricia sat face to face . "i need to see where ash is " and he left

{ fifteen minutes later}

there was a knock on Badcock s door Arthur opens to find Alex and Franz "another murder gentlemen"

"who" rachel glanced at Alex

"pat doctor says taxine "

"ask the family and the police to assemble i feel i can edge out the case "

"please have a seat er-" said kate

" Rachel Badcock and Arthur Jackson "

"Yes"

Edward arrived with coffee which patricia distributed . Rachel said to Kate "tell me something of dominic carson "

"Dominic was 5 years younger than me. i didn't expect him to die so soon at the age of 50"

" and you madame" he said turning to Mandelin but to the horror of the family her eyes were shut

Franz shook her , her lips parted "What the devil" she paused "into the coffee"

she stopped to sleep a swift dreamless sleep

II

"hemlock "said the physician

*******************************

it was the day of the funeral . Constable Pitt asked "found any clues yet "

"no but i smell murder"

"May i come in" asked Kate

"yes ma'am" said Rachel

"well it seems on one told you Mandelins got another son called Alex Carson who lives in Russia he's got a russian wife called Ashlina Petrov . He s come . He s in the library .

Oh! another might help Mandelin played with venom

"

II

Alex and Patricia sat face to face . "i need to see where ash is " and he left

{ fifteen minutes later}

" i accept this case as a failure said rachel as the key was opened by patricia not me Patricia gave me two letters the first one a typed one says

KILL OR DIE

Alex Carson

Next letter to me

M rachel,

i know i killed patricia and will be killed soon

now a letter from Dominics room

D carson you are under my eye

a copy of carson s will

" i leave my wife a sum of 50 thousand pounds son a 20 thousand pounds and my estate to my daughter in law"

so it seems no sum has been left to alex now making my points clear Alex is not the killer "

" what! one moment you say he is and the next moment he is not" shouted Franz

" yes sir the she or the killer is dead"

"she "

"yes Patricia Carson is dead by now .Mandelin & Patricia have played an equal role in this .

You might wonder how i found out two phone calls a page from a diary and a telephone recording told all The first one that is Mrs Mandelin Carson is a murder second is

a suicide Patricia carefully chose Alex as he was kept out of the will . Patricia Carson and her brother Stephen Johnson the manager of the hotel in which i boarded faced a financial crisis .

she and her brother Quite wistfully killed dominic okay, then why Mandelin because it was she who supplied the venom.

And with this i say goodbye to buckinghamshire and the case
