The Case of the Murderous Mermaid: Mystery Short Story

Miranda the Mermaid hovered in the water and adjusted the top of her sequined swimming suit. A chorus of catcalls came to her ears and she looked out the clear glass of the tank. A small crowd of young men gazed up from the dance floor in appreciative adoration of her nearly naked beauty. Miranda smiled and blew them a kiss and they shouted their approval in return.
