Don’t forget the power of the Press.
Newspaper accounts, obituaries, local television coverage are overlooked (and woefully underused) weapons in the Cozy author’s arsenal.
Seasoned readers of Mystery will question every word coming out of every non-sleuthian mouth. However, the wily writer can slip misleading mistruths into the story by having them spoken by the supposedly objective Press.
The maneuver is sneaky and underhanded… and priceless.
