The Amethyst Knife
Deep in the hills of Southern Gyrah, an old lady lay on the ground in a pool of her own blood. An amethyst knife stuck out of her back. Next to her lay a shattered glass goblet. Droplets of wine stained the floor. The glass shards bent the light from the open window, casting eerie rainbows on the dead woman’s face.
It was a headline in all the papers. Marylynn Layborne, millionaire, found murdered only hours after a party held in her home to celebrate the marriage of her only daughter, Vienna Layborne, and her husband Robert Hudson.
