She’s suspicious that her nephew Arthur may have had something to do with it. He returned from the war with a bayonet as a souvenir. It has red stains on it so she hides it. She doesn’t tell him. Then another roomer dies.

About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
