So now that you have some information about the heroine, Kendra, let me tantalize you a bit about the murder victim, Cloud Nicholson.
She was the only child of well-to-do parents. They were not strict disciplinarians and Cloud’s appetite for adventure often landed her in trouble. She loved playing pranks on people, using language that shocked her listeners, and dating much older boys. Was her hunger for thrills what got her killed? Perhaps.
