Casual Mention

A man is found dead at the base of a tall cliff on a coastal beach. As the tide ebbed away, so did his life. Was this a suicide, or was he pushed instead? Perhaps a fall from the cliff wasn’t the actual cause of death. With no murder weapon at the scene and any evidence of others involved covered by shifting and settling sands, it takes some time to figure out what has happened. But good detective work eventually leads to the correct assumptions. Now the only remaining questions are how did it happen, and who was involved.
