And congratulations to the winners and mostly to those who found the solution. I stopped tracking the killer at some point just happy to have a laugh...


Alex! .... thank you...
I believe I agree wholeheartedly ....

Yes you did, Geoff! Thanks for that!





(Geoff posted a note of congratulations on my member page, leaving me curious as to what he was congratulating me for!)

And a big thanks to Alex for creating this marvelous website with all of it's wonderful camaraderie and contests!

Congrats to the winners. I'm available to investigate the process for all the losers.

$50 a day plus expenses.

I can see it now, the latest MR ebook/Drink.

You just got back from vacation, and you already want to take an R&R? And why VRC? Not too many folks vacation at the Vaccine Research Center!

Farking Social Workers! Stop trying pshrynk's last nerve!

Rock & Red --- that sounds like Creme de Noyeaux on the rocks. (That's Cream of Almonds, and it's red colored). I'll have one tonight, to celebrate!

My OFFICIAL solution to the Rock Lobster - PI for Hire mystery
by WT Sharpe

Nekokami killed pshrink.

* She had motive: Not only was she incensed by pshrink charging her $300.00 for advice she considered unnecessary, but she may have been jealous of his success as a writer as well.

* She had no alibi. No one saw her during the time of the murder, and she avoided the question when Rock asked her.

* Pshrink implicated her by the Yellow Star with the Red Q he was clutching. She said, “I’m a BLOODY QUAKER!”, and what better way for the dying man to implicate a Bloody Quaker than by pulling out his old avatar? Red Q = Bloody Quaker. Oh, what a giveaway!

I chose Nekokami as the murderer because she had motive, no alibi, and was a “Bloody Quaker” who was implicated by pshrink by his clutching of the Yellow Star with the Red Q.
