The Manhattan Murder Mystery

A Manhattan financier has a bad day trading, and returns to his penthouse and drowns his miseries in a bottle of scotch. While drinking, he dozes off, and his five year old daughter makes her way to the pool and drowns. When he awakes and discovers her body, he and his 2nd wife at the time panic: he’s drunk and she’s high. They think the police might hold them accountable. They decide to bury her body out on the Island and make it look like a kidnapping: he takes the body alone. While he’s driving, he’s pulled over by the police and his daughter’s lifeless body is found. He’s eventually sentenced to twenty years in prison. While in prison, he discovers an article about his 2nd wife’s old roommate, a woman who died of a drug overdose. Because he’s a wealthy man, and because of that article, he believes maybe his 2nd wife (now divorced while in prison), might’ve killed his daughter and made it look like an accident, to get his money. He calls upon the two prominent lawyers from the Drayton case in Montauk, Long Island (The Montauk Murder Mystery), William Parkland and Catherine Huntington, to see if they’ll take his cause up. But many obstacles are standing in his way: he gave away all his money and assets to his 2nd ex-wife—so he has no money to hire them out, William’s not sure if his 2nd ex-wife is innocent or not and has major issues with him because he was drinking while he was on his daughter’s watch, and his 2nd ex-wife turned out to be a lesbian whose fake alibi for the night the drowning took place is a highly suspect woman. Catherine wants to get to the bottom of things, but there seems to be loose ends everywhere, and because of this, it might cancel out his chances of them taking the case. When things come to light—when the facts of the case are laid out plain and simple, it’s a matter of interpretation as to why such an event could’ve or would’ve happened—to the undiscerning mind. But to the discerning mind, it makes perfect sense. Literary fiction; mystery, suspense and law: with philosophical, psychological, social and theological arches.
