Death in Your Own Driveway!

Victoria Teasdale never knew what hit her. She was within the safety of her home, awaiting the arrival of her loving husband. She was ready to celebrate the purchase of the newest addition to his collection of classic cars: a rare 1936 Cord.
But Derek was late. So late that she passed the time by writing letters to friends. Wanting to be sure to catch the morning mail pickup, she went out into the warm night, crossing her driveway to the mailbox on the other side.
Suddenly, there was the roar of a powerful V-8 engine and in one terrible tick of time, the rich and happy world of Victoria Teasdale came to an end.
At least, that was the story her husband told. Nothing more than an accident, he said, and everyone including the local police believed him. Their hearts went out to the bereaved husband who bore the responsibility of killing his own wife.
But then, Derek Teasdale had another misfortune. He met another lover of classic cars, a very perceptive man named Inspector Cross. The Inspector took a good hard look at the "accident" scene and came up with an amazing one-word
conclusion, and that word was "Murder!"
