The girls are back in Omaha in 1898 when it was known as a "dirty, wicked town". They are in the Trans-Mississippi Exposition and Marge Aaron sees a big man in overalls. She recognizes him as Dastardly Dan Digswell, a criminal she put away when she was an active homicide detective. But how can Dastardly Dan be here, in 1898? Marge leaves her friends to find out and discovers he is Despicable Don, Dan's grandfather. He is as mean as a cold rattlesnake and decides to do away with Marge so she can't arrest his grandson. He chases her through the tunnels beneath the massive exposition. It is shadowy and downright pitch black at times. Water from the canal in the middle of the exposition splashes through vents and soaks Marge. Her red cane is useless in 1898. She stumbles, falls and after a long time is exhausted, all the time hearing Despicable Don's footsteps getting closer and closer.
He will kill her for sure.
Finally, she leans against the slick, slimy wall, her dress ruined, her hair soaked and she slides to the floor where she wait for Don to find her
and silence her forever.
Book XI will be done by early summer and you will be invited to a delightful launch at our home retirement community,
For now, we will reveal happenings in this latest adventure of the girls, Wiley Vondra, Alphonso Greatwood and of course.
