A *NEW* Murder Mystery: They Clone from Outer Space

They say hindsight is 20-20, and in hindsight, we probably shouldn’t have cloned a human. But, in the year 2020, Olympic decathlete, Al Lele, was cloned and the Blender line was born. Now in its third generation, Dr. Gene Blender has defied all odds. He’s married, has three daughters, and is a lead scientist at the University that created him. The hope was that he’d outlive all the previous clones in his line, but that hope died with him.

Amid protests about clones stealing American jobs, accusations of sexual misconduct, the unexpected delivery of divorce papers, and (according to some) the threat of invading aliens altering his genetic make-up, Dr. Gene Blender was found dead in his lab. Was it a heart attack or something more sinister? Who would destroy such a medical marvel? What was in those magic genes that made them so resilient to repeat cloning, and what can the DNA evidence tell us about the murder?

About the Author: Dr. Valerie J. Mikles is a recent inductee onto the BCT Board and is delighted to debut this original murder mystery. Scientist by day, sci-fi writer by night, and theater junkie in the hours between, her motto in life is “I can be everything I want, just not all at the same time.” Valerie’s novels will be available for purchase and signing by the author herself at our March Murder Mystery at Wendy’s! The paperback books are $15 each, and cash/credit are accepted.

Murder is a Fine Art!

Libby LaBelle, art critic for the influential “Graphic News,” used her vitriolic columns to destroy the careers of many artists. A good review from Libby meant instant success. A bad review could signal the end of the line for the career of even the most talented individual. And, Libby didn’t limit her critiques to the art world. She’d regularly write scathing comments about the events she’d attended, panning the planning as well as the cuisine and wine selections. That’s why, over the years, her list of eminent enemies grew. She was loved by her adoring fans and hated by the targets of her poisonous prose. When it was announced that impressionist artist Pete Casso was to preview an upcoming exhibit at the Creative Connection Art Gallery, Libby made a point of letting everyone know she’d be there to, once again, pen a negative review of Casso’s latest masterpiece. Who would have suspected that the review would never be printed? For, in the middle of an acerbic attack on both the artwork and the occasion, Libby collapsed in a heap on the floor of the gallery, her worrisome word processor silenced forever. Did someone take the opportunity to do away with her explosive expletives? And, what past unknown indiscretions could have prompted the passion? It would take a palette of investigative skills to solve the case and identify the murderer.
