Mr Wallace had a sister who was very different than him

Where he was short and fat, she was tall and slim!

But the differences did not just stop there. Oh no, there were more.

Where he was slightly diffident she was confidently sure.

They went to the pub one night to have a drink or two.

There was a quiz going on so they stayed for quite a few!

They won the prize that night and went home to bed,

But in the morning the maid found one; laid out dead!

Mr Wallace was dead in his bedroom,

But the prize and his sister were gone.

She was last seen on a boat

Sailing on the Amazon!

Now the reason behind his murder was the prize of which I’ve not told

It was the millionth copy of The Desolate Garden that Danny Kemp had sold!

I wish!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
