Tuesday Tales May 15th, 2012 Theme The Arch in Central Park.


      New York City Homicide Detective Rosalie Grimaldi took a walk in Central Park to clear her head from what had been going on with some of her cases.  She kept hearing crime was down in New York, but you wouldn’t know it from the files on her desk.  She and her partner, Maria Poniatowski thought the body count was high.

     Rosalie loved walking under the roadway on the path.  It was so quiet and peaceful.  Well, normally it was quiet and peaceful, until she tripped.

     “What the hell?”  She got up and saw the body.  It was a good looking young male, who had been badly beaten.  She called the station and got the sergeant on duty, John Kearns, a grumpy older man, who was cynical and should’ve retired years ago.  “Sgt. Kearns,” He barked.

     “Kearns, it’s Grimaldi, I need uniforms and crime scene techs in Central Park.”

     “Don’t you have enough to do, Grimaldi?  We’re supposed to go to crime scenes, not find ’em.”

     “Yeah whatever.”  

      “They’re on their way.”

      “After a long evening with the crime scene, Rosalie headed to the station.  Captain McCann greeted her, “We’re supposed to…”

      “Yeah, I know, Kearns already said that to me.”

     The trail in the park had now become another trail; toward a killer.

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.

    Love this! The language of the cop is terrific and you’ve piqued my interest, Mike. Now I want to know what happened to the young man and who did it. Well done!
