Getting to know more about Malachi. He seems like a minor sleuth. He thinks more than he talks. I'm glad to have a Black sleuth in on a major case with a White reporter. This brings up Branigan. She really seems to go along without much help from the police. Of course, there is Detective Scovoy. Have many thoughts. Will bring it down to the fact that I'm really liking this mystery. For once, I can't figure anything out. Who murdered Maylene and Janie Rose? I do believe a young woman drove the hearse that fatal night. I'm thinking this because of Charlie's dream about Mrs. Santa driving the sleigh.
