A Novel Death by Tyree Campbell


Wishing to give his wife a commemoration of his love for her, the Sultan of Hadhramat hit upon a novel idea.  He would purchase from a reputable company a greeting card containing an amorous poem, and sign it, and give it to her along with a ruby tiara, the gemstones in the color and shape of a heart.

The heart you have stolen, the Sultan thought fondly, as he searched through the Hallmark card catalog. 

There was only one problem:  he had not foreseen that he would perish from writer’s cramp.
