Favorites from: The Baffled Beatlemaniac Caper

The four of us gathered in the front of the stage. "Are you all right, Sandy?"  Grant asked. "You look like you walked in from a haunted house." 

Braxton had that effect on people - five minutes with him and you're scared senseless. "The detective's trying to pin Dana's death on me." 

"Why does he think you did it?" Scott asked. 

"He doesn't have a lead and he's fishing for a scapegoat. Just because I was the last guy to see Dana alive, he thinks...I don't know what he thinks." 

Scott's eyes burned into me. "Did you kill Dana?" 

"No, I did not." I met his gaze with equal fury. "Did you?" 

One of my favorite aspects of The Baffled Beatlemaniac Caper was the mystery. I really loved not only how Carpenter kept me guessing about who the killer was, but I also enjoyed how she was able to pull so much Beatles trivia into the story. I have seen the documentary about the "Paul is Dead" hoax, but I don't know a lot about the Beatles. Carpenter was able to bring in things like Blue Meanies and Apple Bonkers in a way that even those unfamiliar with the Beatles could understand and enjoy.
