Detective Mitchell, who considered himself a connoisseur of shoe fashion, boasted he could solve any crime simply by looking at the victim’s shoes.

Expensive shoes meant the victim was well-off; the killer’s motive was obviously money.

If the victim wore stilettos, undoubtedly the motive was sex.

Scruffy shoes destined the victim to crimes of opportunity.

Motive was only part of the puzzle, he admitted. But knowing the ‘why’ always made finding the ‘who’ easier.

Mitchell studied the man lying in a pool of blood.

Steel-toed boots. An ass-kicker this one. He got what was coming to him.
