Story from Music. The Ronettes had it all wrong. The best part of breaking up is not the making up. That rarely happens, and when it does, it often leads to more breaking up. No, the real pleasure in having your soul shredded by another human being comes in the days, weeks, months, or maybe even years of wallowing that follow.
This journey into the self can be scary, but luckily, generations of musicians have written songs to soundtrack the plunge. What follows are the saddest and therefore finest breakup songs of all time. A few days later, Marjorie Empson, the lead of a local ladies reading club, is battered to death with her walking stick, shortly after its latest meeting. The members of the reading club were secretly investing in the stock market and their investments were doing rather well.
Barnaby and Troy investigate whether both incidents are linked. When two more murders slowly follow the first, they encounter lots of personal secrets of many in the village and a pool man who seems to be everywhere.
