Light was fading fast outside when the terrible thing happened.

“How long was he in the water before you found him.”

“Not more than 15 minutes inspector” answered Erick. “I saw him on my last round.

“No witnesses I assume?”

“He always swam late at night and always alone. Except last night.”

“Except last night Erick? Who was with him last night.”

“It was a lady. There were lots of laughs and horseplay. Then I heard angry shouts and then silence.”

“Erick, do you think he was having an argument with his wife.”

“Inspector, I know one thing. It wasn’t his wife.”

    A good mystery Danny. She, whoever she was, turned out to be a deadly companion. Well written. 🙂 — Suzanne

    Moral of the story – don’t swim alone at night if you have enemies! =) A cliffhanger for sure and nicely done.

    This man Erick knows something. He may have seen things. Definitely he has heard noise. Probe him for answer. He will talk.

    I reckon Erick knows and is covering for the man’s wife. A tricky one for the Inspector to solve.
