The Death of Betty Pinto

Some time ago, I told you that Amazon had accepted my short mystery, "The Death of Betty Pinto" and would publish it as an Amazon Short. It has now been published and is available on Amazon. Below is a discription of the story.
Years ago, I worked as a volunteer in an inner city soup kitchen. There I met a variety of characters both admirable and disreputable. This provided the background for "The Death of Betty Pinto". When the story begins, Betty and Rose are two elderly friends who run a soup kitchen in a building they both own. After a rare public argument between them, Betty is found murdered. Who killed Betty? Is it Rose, who stands to inherit Betty’s half of the building? Detective Blanchard thinks so. Or is it one of the kitchen’s clientele with a grudge against Betty who wasn’t a sweet old lady?
If you are interested and would like to read the story go to Amazon.Com and type my name Judith Colombo. It will take you to my page.
You don't have to buy my short, but there are many fine stories and essays on the site. Since all shorts are only forty-nine cents, you won't lose a fortune. www.amazon.com/shorts.
I am sorry I can't provide links. I tried in the edited version of the blog, but it isn't working for me today.
