In New York City to finalize a deal for the Museum of Contemporary Culture, Jessica finds herself trying to solve a murder. Her friend Floyd Larkin, owner of the venerable Larkins Department Store, is preoccupied when someone is found murdered on the premises. Things seem to go from bad to worse when Larkin tells Jessica that he's backing out of his promised support for the Museum and is selling his store to a rival chain owned by Clint Hallowell. It's a bitter pill, especially for long-time employees who worry about their future. When Hallowell is also killed - by a crossbow - there is no shortage of possible suspects.
Victim(s): Henry Wilson and Clint Hallowell
Killer: Floyd Larkin
Cause of Death: Axed in the back; shot in the chest with a crossbow
Motive: Discovered he'd been embezzling from clients to keep the store afloat; to obtain a file from him revealing his motive for Henry's murder.
When Jessica learned of the new addition to Ernie & Sharain, & brings up Ibrihim Abraham Fishman, she brings up the only difference is the spelling, some one needed to tell her that the other difference is the pronounciation of Ibrahim.
