In last month’s chapter, Mr. Spryke and Cliff Roles disguised themselves as gay German tourists to escape discovery by the police, who were searching for them in connection with two Sarasota murders. Mr. Spryke and Cliff were trying to find the real killer; and after spotting amateur actress Hailey Harper Howe with art dealer Marco Massima, they realized that the two were in cahoots and that their next victim would be rich widow Doris Dickens. Mr. Spryke tried to call Mary Alice to tell her, but she was headed to The Colony for a tryst with Rick and did not answer her phone.
“What are you doing?” Mary Alice asked as she watched Rick walk the length of their room at the Colony. His back was so beautiful, so broad at the shoulders and then tapering down to that narrow waist and that firm and shapely butt. So different from Dr. Wiggins’ fat ass.
