恋爱与钞票

  你是一位不错的侦察,是吗?假如是的话,那你得比沃尔什探长先找出凶手。沃尔什探长是名警探,他工作虽然说慢了点,可非常仔细。你是位“快手”吗?侦察是干什么的呢?侦察就是寻觅线索的人。而线索就是告知你谁是凶手的关键但又藐小的事物。发明线索不容易,但本故事中有很多线索。有些线索有效——它们能辅助你,可有些线索却晦气——它们故障你找到凶手。你得认真点读,不然你会错过线索。

  但请记着:你没必要信赖人们说的每件事。凶手明显会扯谎,大概其他人因差别的来由也会扯谎。或许他们期望或人死去。可是谁期望呢?谁杀的?你能找出凶手吗?

  罗伊纳·阿金耶米英国人,但在非洲渡过了很多年。《恋爱与钞票》是她为英语门生写的第一部故事。
