Murphy's Law : Book 2 | Red Harvest

Murphy's Law
Book II: Red Harvest
By Josie

Jack Murphy once again delves into the murky underworld to find a missing girl. Armed with only his dry-wit and cynicism, he journeys to a quiet little farm town called Waterston. It’s a beautiful place, renown for its cherries and the orchards that dotted the landscape against the rolling green hills beyond. But it’s also a world where the hunter becomes the hunted and where the forces of good collide with the evil cloaked in the myth and mysticism of an ancient belief.

It’s also a place where some find the "Red Harvest sinfully wild to enjoy, while others find nothing more than disappointment and regret . . ."

Murphy's Law (Revised)

Murphy's Law
Revised
By Josie

“Murphy understood the law and knew justice. He also knew that the two were often not the same. To catch the bad guy and win a confession, you had to be willing to step outside the box and take chances. That’s what made him a great cop. But that didn’t give him the right to take the law in his own hands. All he had to do was have a boy examined to confirm his true gender and now his mistake was going to cost him. Maybe his job? Maybe a demotion?

But then nothing in this case was turning out like it should. He should have seen this coming. He should have known that you can test the odds and you can test your resolve, but never pit your luck against Murphy’s Law. Because sure as the devil will get his due, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong!”

I was about to call everyone together, when Chris turned up with the mayor of Wiesbaden and the minister of the interior of Hessen in tow. It was two in the afternoon. He introduced me to both of them and I asked them into Wagenhuber’s office, where they wanted a short summary of what all this was about, so I gave them an abbreviated history of the case against the Russian gang, the violence of them and how Holtusen’s intervention had led to Angela’s assassination. I gave them the details of how Marina and I had arrested the pimp in our effort to gather material against Holthusen and how that had led to the discovery of the corruption and the involvement of internal affairs. Finally I advised them against a press conference.

The next morning, waking up in the arms of Grishka another time, was bliss. He was awake already, having been able to sleep on the plane, so I was looking into his eyes lifting my head from his chest when I woke up. He smiled.
“Good morning little woman,” he said softly “You went out like a light last night.”
“Things rolled over me like a run away freight train, after Marina and I arrested that pimp at the casino.” I replied yawning.
“Well, nothing that a bit of a cuddle and a good breakfast wouldn’t cure, I am sure.” he said, pulling me back into a loving embrace.
“Hmmm.” I hummed into his chest, relishing his smell.

I did not take long to get back to the station, where Sasha and Anna were waiting for us anxiously. Sasha was more afraid for Sergeij, I thought. I was sure she had not planned for to him take any part in this. And, what I expected, she went to embrace him first, but Anna went straight for Marina, seeking her protection. Geraldine was smiling as she came to look into my eyes saying:
“If your daughter is to be believed you are an angel in disguise, Monika.”
I could not help some tears ruining the rest of my make-up.

Never Wanted To Be A Girl Chp.10

Rebecca, Chilly, and Dorothy all meet at Rebecca’s place. They didn’t want to jeopardize or compromise their covers. So far, things were going well with the investigation. Chilly had been accepted at the prison as the replacement guard. Dorothy had replaced the nurse that had been there.

Marina’s encouragement really helped. She was becoming such a lovely friend.
“Honey,” I said “Kathrin has called Sasha, who is now on the way here with Sergeij. She should be meeting with Kathrin in an hour or so. I want you to go and be there for Anna and guide Sasha in what we want to know. And, of course, to give Kathrin my heartfelt thanks. If you can, please give a short report to Harry over the phone? The situation here seems under control. The pimp and Wagenhuber are being locked up at the MEK under Geraldine’s control. She has been put under my command until this is sorted by her boss and so has Joachim.”
“Wow, Moni, you have more people under your command now than your previous boss, I suppose.”
“I hope he never hears of this. He’d have a stroke now, if I was still under his command.”
“Just as well that the President, Dr. Heemann and Dr.Winter trust your instinctive decisions as much as the logically reasoned ones. How did you find out about the corruption here?”
“Pure intuition, Marina.”

The sergeant sorted and the station sealed I decided to ring Kathrin. She obviously had been waiting for a message as she picked up the phone and said:
“Hello, this is Kathrin, is that you, Marina?”
“No, Kathrin, it is me, Monika.”

All three of them, Gerhard, Karl and Martin seemed for the first time to get a glimpse, of what we had been through in this case. Karl shook himself and looked into my eyes as he asked:
“Who trained you, Monika?”
“Well,” I replied “There is a who and also a what. I was on loan to NYPD once, due to my good English with a proper UK accent, posing as a European buyer on a drug bust. The who is Special agent in charge Washington Farmer, who’s called ThreeB in the NY underworld as in Bad Black Bastard.”
“I see,” Karl said “that explains the Smith and Wesson and the Glock and ammo.”
“That was also where I got my first experiences of violent and heavily armed gangs.”
Karl smiled.
“Well, girl, things fall into place now.” He paused “Where do we go from here?”

Scott looked over at the mousy brunette seated across from him and sipped his coffee.  It was hard to believe it had been two weeks since he’d seen her last.  She was dressed in a light sundress and sandals and had applied makeup for the first time since Scott knew her.  She adjusted her sunglasses and took a sip of the mocha leaving bright pink lipstick on the rim. 

“This is nice.”

The shadows were long and dark drenching the landscape and giving the estate a gothic old world feel.  Solomon standing on the mansion’s third floor veranda looked up at the moon with unseeing eyes. 

“How is it possible?”

After the call back to ThreeB and Grishka Marina and I took Anna back to the lovely little pension we had found and she was over awed about the way we treated her. She was a lovely girl underneath, but well and truly not quite fifteen yet. I wished my Sasha was here, but she needed her undisturbed time with Sergeij. To my surprise Marina took me aside, once Anna was comfortably settled in my bed.
“Moni,” she started “I think I am beginning to understand, what makes you so happy to have Sasha. Anna is such a lovely girl, really, I fear I am developing motherly feelings here.”

The case of the Grimwood girl's school

The case of Grimwood Girl’s School

There are several cases involving Mr. Sherlock Holmes that for one reason or another, I was not able to release near the time that they happened.

Usually, this was because of the sensitive or possibly embarrassing nature of the case, especially when it involved a person of higher standing.

This is true of the case I’m about to relate, but the person who was most affected by it was myself.

Harry and Annmarie left soon after that and Marina and I spent some time with my love, before it was time to go home.
“What are you going to do tomorrow, my love?” Angela enquired.
“I am going to the airport to meet the US-Marshalls, who are coming to collect the assassin. I think they are going to be very happy to have him finally. He must have quite a list of kills they want him for.”

The rumble of a truck moving past the van woke him and for a moment Scott didn’t know where he was.  Then he remembered yesterday.  He reached up and felt the soft flesh on his chest.  Fatalistically he slid a hand between his legs and found his sensitive feminine sex.

That organised I sat back to think about Mrs. Myers. How could one be so obedient to stupid religious rules? Was there not enough evidence in the world, that giving the other cheek never led anywhere good? Vlad would have loved that. In fact, I thought, he was the perfect example of the flaws of that kind of thinking. I could relate to Gandhi's passive resistance, but Catholicism had always seemed bordering on silly to me, be it the interdiction of the pill or abortion or the infallibility of the pope, after centuries of corrupt and lecherous ones … but well, belief you cannot discuss, not like knowledge. And that humanity seems to have rejected now for millennii.

Another night in the arms of my friend and future lover did wonders to my spirit. It was so nice to be able to move freely without any fear of causing a strange reaction seeing me naked. Grishka was a wonder of patience and I actually surprise myself, too, being so very restrained with anything but and occasional kiss. But both of us knew it was worth the wait. When he had showered I sent Grishka into the kitchen to make coffee so that I’d have the opportunity to put on Frau Holzer’s dress with all the appropriate undergarments and surprise Grishka with it. The guys at Davidwache, too were in for a surprise. I could not help giggling.

The news about Mrs. Myers was not good when it came. Her husband had seriously injured her and she would need to stay another night at the hospital. I told Kerstin to take a statement and ask her, if she wanted to press charges, then come back with the result. As soon as I had put down the receiver I picked it up again and called Winston. He was all but pleased at the news.
“If the wife will press charges, I think we can send him back under guard.” he said “So check with her on that. Otherwise you’ll have to charge him here under German law and see where that leads, I am sorry to say.”
“OK, I replied, I’ll ring my DA.” and as an afterthought “Have you heard anything about the American assassin we have caught here shooting at Angela, my sidekick?”

The Hero, The Mouse & The Cheshire Pt. 4

Tizzy and her partner stand in the living room of the girl that had been killed. They were informed that the detectives that had been assigned to search the place, didn’t find anything. Tizzy moves from room to room examining each room. Her partner was examining the other rooms. She finally makes her way back to the bedroom where the girl had been found.

Tizzy glances around the room and as she was thinking where she would hide something to keep others from finding whatever it was, she had.
She spots the large collection of shoes Malia Napua collected.

‘Sorry, Jennifer, I’m a bit nervous. I always start giggling when I’m nervous. How are you both?’

Hmm, so she assumed that I now was Jennifer and not Jason. Maybe my voice sounded girly – I hoped so...

Veronika and Oleg arrived about half an hour later. Veronika was still not quite calmed down, but Oleg had at least gotten the fact across, that Angela was alive. I hugged Vroni as she stood in the door and kissed her last tears away.
“Vroni, I am so sorry to have forgotten about you coming back and to have missed informing you!”
“It’s OK, Moni, you probably had a lot on your mind. How did you cope?”
“Well, there was Professor Doehn, to start with and everybody else was just marvellous, too. But it was hard nevertheless. But now she is on the mend and will be home in a couple of weeks. I’ll tell the whole story tonight at Wohltorf, where you will meet some very interesting people. But I invited you not only so that you hear the story, but also to get a bit distracted, too.”

Biggi showed up soon afterwards and had to be told what happened. I had decided not to tell her the whole truth. I did not want her to worry. Sasha – of course – had already heard it. When Grishka and I had finished the tale as a natural death Biggi was relieved in two respects: I had not killed the bastard but he was dead nevertheless.

The drive was uneventful and appeared very long, but we reached Berlin at about six. Grishka wanted to go to the embassy first, to make some calls and so pretty soon the embassy's gates closed behind our car. As we left the car and entered the building we almost bumped into a man whom I took to be Alexander Saitzew, the ambassador, but I got some doubt when he greeted Grishka with:
"Grishka, you old scoundrel, where have you been?" and then added with a significant glance at me "And who is your pretty friend?"

The press conference over I had a bit of breathing space. Sure, I would have to work with Wolfram on the paperwork for the demand for extradition from wherever he might get apprehended, even though we were both certain that once he got to Russia he'd be out of reach. I introduced Grishka to him and Wolfram was impressed. Grishka confirmed that once in Russia the guy that called himself Vlad Dracul would be free to do what he pleased. But we could make it as difficult as possible for him to get there. Wassilij was a major trump in our game, he said.
