Midnight Ink Monthly's October Edition featured an excerpt from The Question of the Missing Head by E.J. Copperman and Jeff Cohen.
Can Samuel Hoenig Solve The Question of the Missing Head?:
"It's a cryogenics lab, Jesse," she said. "It's legal."
"Cryonics," I corrected. "Cryogenics is simply the science of very low temperatures. Cryonics is the activity practiced here."
But the officer named Jesse, whose name tag read "Crawford," pointed at Dr. Springer's body. "What about that?"
"That is one of our doctors," Ackerman said.
"She's dead?" Crawford asked.
"Call it in," Crawford told his partner, and she reached for her communications link on her shoulder.
"That might not work down here," Ackerman told her, and pointed to the phone. The female officer started to call to her headquarters.
"You were coming out of there when we came in," Crawford said to me. "You shouldn't have been in there."
"We weren't sure she was dead," Ms. Washburn explained. "Mr. Hoenig was trying . . ."
"I answer people's questions for them," I told the officer. "I needed to be in there to answer a question for Dr. Ackerman."
"Did you touch anything?"
"No," I said. "I was extremely careful."
Crawford leaned into the preservation chamber, and Ackerman looked nervously after him. I think he was nervous—it might have been an expression of disapproval.
"No blood," Crawford said. "Looks like natural causes."
"Oh, no," I told him. "Dr. Springer was murdered."
