An Issue of Women and Money by Michael Stanley
by Barb Goffman
24/366 From the anthology Once Upon A Crime edited by Gary R. Bush and Chris Everheart (Nodin Press 2009)
Most of the stories in this anthology are set in Minnesota, which makes sense since the anthology was designed to honor the owner of the Minneapolis bookstore Once Upon A Crime. This story, however, is set in Botswana. Two men were involved in a fistfight, then one is found dead with a knife in his chest. The other man denies being the killer. Police detective Kubu is on the case. The key clue to solving the puzzle is right there, yet it’s hidden so well in plain site that I missed it. Good thing Kubu didn’t. Will you spot the clue?
