“Open and Shut Case” by Richard F. Yates

The case was open and shut! The Shampoo Bottle was murdered by The Ketchup. We had the smoking gun—HOWEVER, Detective Skipwilly suspected that The Ketchup might have been a mere doop, an innocent victim of a brainwashing plot who was triggered by a third—as yet unidentified—party to bump the old Shampoo Bottle off. A LOT of folks had plenty to gain from the old lady’s death: Mr. Lamp, The Brush, even The Orange Pillow on the living room couch…

Skipwilly needed to hit the bricks and grill his informants… And he needed to watch his back. If he was RIGHT then anyone (or anyTHING) could be out to kill him at this point. He was going to need help, and the only creature he could trust…

…was Lemon Lizard!

Unfortunately, nobody had even SEEN the Lizard Wizard in over four years…

P.S. – Lemon Lizard was last seen HERE and/or HERE. The historical records are a bit fuzzy.
