Murder in G Major (2016) Alexia Gordon (Gethsemane Brown)

Murder in G Major

“I’m Gethsemane.”

“A nice Biblical name.”

“Grandmother’s idea. Father wanted to name us all after Nobel laureates. Mother just wanted the names to be pronounceable with no unnecessary apostrophes.”

(M)y career plans don’t include a scorched earth policy. I want to leave on a high, not sneak away in shame like the Colts out of Baltimore.

“The church has a poison garden? As in Arsenic and Old Lace poison?”

“More like Socrates. Arsenic’s a metal.” The cleric removed his cap and scratched his head. “We’ve got foxglove, hemlock, belladonna, aconite, Jimson weed, oleander, some others.”

“I’ll rephrase. Why does the church have a poison garden? Incentive to tithe?”

“The Church hasn’t been that severe since the Inquisition. Our garden’s of historical interest. The nuns of the Sacred Society of Apothecaries had their abbey here in the fifteenth century. They planted the garden for medicinal purposes.”
