Always a bridesmaid, never a bride, is the old saying but have you ever thought how that thought must rankle in the minds of woman to whom it is applied. Helen Liversy for instance, Helen always seemed to lose out with the men she set her cap for and who could say what emotion plagued her now she could no longer be called a young woman. She didnt show it of course, even when men came to her about their troubles with other women, like Glen Reed.

Murder is a peculiar affair. All it needs in many cases is the right pressure the right set of circumstances, the right opportunity and an otherwise respectable member of the community becomes a killer. If youd tried to explain that to Arthur Winslow he wouldnt have understood. If youd told him that he was in a fair way to become a murderer in a few months he would have looked at you strangely for Arthur was respectable, solid exactly like a hundred thousand other respectable solid Jersey commuters. His life was a pretty drab affair, part of it the office J. Simmons and Company, Investment Brokers.
