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.

Musical Comedy Murders of 1940
Feb 9-24, 2018
Play by John Bishop

2nd Star Productions at the Bowie Playhouse

The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious “Stage Door Slasher” assemble at a Westchester estate for a backer’s audition of their new show. The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways, and a German maid who is apparently four different people, all of which figure diabolically in the comic mayhem which follows when the infamous “Slasher” makes a reappearance and strikes again and again. Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is an ingenious and wildly comic romp which pokes antic fun at the more ridiculous aspects of “show biz” and the corny thrillers of Hollywood’s heyday.

Tickets for shows at Bowie Playhouse are $22.00 for General Admission, $19.00 for seniors (60 and over) and full time students, and $12 for Children 11 and under. Buy tickets here.

Death is a Cabernet, Ol’ Chum

It was an evening of wine and cheese at the Melee Vineyards in Nippy Valley, celebrating the winery’s tenth anniversary. Owner Malcolm Melee took great pride in pouring his world-famous Melee Cabernet, the wine that tickles the palates of wine connoisseurs around the globe.
Over the past decade, his small operation has built a record of supplying a quality product, even though Melee’s surly personality had produced more adversaries than advocates.
The celebration was open to the public and the assemblage included both his supporters and detractors, some of whom openly expressed their opinions about his business practices. Melee simply laughed off all negative words, even dismissing the notion that someone was determined to end his reign as cabernet king. As the gathering broke up about midnight, Melee bade “farewell” to everyone and said he would stay around to turn out the lights. But this morning, it became deadly obvious that someone had planned lights out for Malcolm Melee, for his body was found at the bottom of the staircase that leads to the oak casks in the wine cellar. Someone had put the cork on Melee and taken action that would squeeze the winery’s reputation.
