I see you are back! Welcome back to the addictive fun of Friday Fictioneers! You know the best fiction can be found right here. Led by  Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, we take the photo and weave our magic with prose and poetry to entertain you. All around the world writers eagerly await their weekly tonic.

Many times the photo featured for the prompt comes from one of the writers involved in our ever enlarging circle. This week, Kent Bonham is the photo provider. I hope you will check out her blog with the link in her name .

Due to a popular requests I am keeping Detective Sophie Marcus as my main character for these weekly photo adventures. In previous installments Sophie is brought in to investigate a murder at a writing conference. You can catch up by reading “The Hornet Chronicles” and “Not the Usual Suspects“.
(Genre: Crime Fiction) (103 words)


Sophie stared at the front of the hotel while waiting for her partner.

“Go ahead, tell Detective Marcus what you overheard.”

The maid fidgeted, obviously uncomfortable with her knowledge.

“I heard guests promise to be coartada,”the Spanish speaker said.

“Alibi,” Sophie translated. She crushed the coffee cup in her hand, the warm liquid splattering on the floor beneath. Hours of work rendered useless.

“Men or women?” Sophie asked.

“One Senor, one Senorita.”

“What now?” Tom Bray asked.

“We start over, with malice!” Sophie spat. Eliminating suspects was hard enough without distrust. She had six suspects identified, but now she would look harder.
