In the city of Jackson Heights many things were going wrong. The city had the highest unemployment rate, the highest crime rate, and on top of that they were just going through a public transportation strike. On a serene, peaceful evening chaos broke loose. A very well-known, distinguished lady, Mademoiselle Pierre, had been murdered. Two men had been arrested. One was Jean-Philip Dumoulin. The other was Thomas Curdilack. Jean-Philip's story: "I was walking down the street to get a bite to eat when I heard a lady scream. I ran around the corner and I saw Mademoiselle Pierre lying on the ground. Standing over her was Thomas Curdilack. As soon as he saw me he turned and ran away. I then called the police." Thomas Curdilack's story: " I was taking the bus down to the Lakeshore Club to play poker with my buddies. As I got off, I heard a scream from around the corner. I ran around and saw Jean-Philip stabbing Mademoiselle Pierre. I chased him, but he got away. I then called the police." The chief detective told the police to arrest Thomas Curdilack. What made him so sure it was Thomas Curdilack?

The general construction of the teaser was promising, but the mention of a transportation strike along with the perpetrator so obviously admitting he took the bus made it too easy. You're on the right track...just work on making us think instead of stating the obvious! Keep writing...I look forward to your next teaser!

thnx...tht kind of feedback helps a lot

easy but fun! Good job!!
Jun 15, 2005

You made that one a little too easy
but great teaser.
Jun 15, 2005

I agree with the others, it was a bit easy but i found it really fun. Good Job!

P.S. I often find hiding things in a list (the city was going through problems like transport strikes etc. etc.) helps because no one ever reads lists lol.

I didn't get it right. Great job
Jun 16, 2005

This was generally a great brain teaser which made me think, except, like the others have said, giving the hint that the city was going through a lot of problems gave it away! Great job! I can't wait to see your next teaser!
Jun 16, 2005

That was an easy one, But a very fun one!

A second, though completely superfluous, clue was that the second suspect said he saw the other guy "stab" the victim, though the police had made no mention of how she had died. I echo the comments made by the others. Good start.
Jun 16, 2005

I got that one immediately. Even though it was easy, it was a good teaser.
Umnesq, i agree with you on the second clue. I was thinking the same thing.
Jun 17, 2005

Beside the strike thing, I thought, who would chase someone he saw stabbing someone (unless he has a death wish) without attempting to aid the victim by calling 911 or the police first? .. also pretty fishy part .. keep up your mystery writing .. I had fun
