Does it sound a little strange that a character like Chile Charlie should embark on murder mystery business? It is not only correct, but he has researched this change to its fullest. He is now on his way in his El Cameo truck to Madrid, New Mexico, to see if he can solve the mystery that happened over 170 years ago.
Chile Charlie was tired after his all-day drive from Las Cruces to Madrid. He took refuge in the only facility open on this sunny day — the Old Boarding Mercantile House. The building was rebuilt to the specifications of what it would have looked like in the 1850s.
He found Avery Smart, a historian of sorts, in a relaxed mood at the Chamber of Commerce building in Madrid. Mr. Smart was a short man with a potbelly that would make Buddha proud. His deep-set blue eyes pierced you when he looked directly at you. His voice came from deep in his throat and sounded like he was speaking in a cave. Chile Charlie asked Mr. Smart if he ever heard of five white males’ mass killings years ago.
