Did you notice Mrs. Shipton's son had a different last name?
Miss Worthington's a big mucky-muck in the historical society, he said, for Edith Shipton's benefit.
As he rose to answer it, he couldn't help noticing Edith Shipton's alarmed reaction to the ring.
However, she said nothing in deference to Edith Shipton's son who remained engrossed with his puzzle.
Edith Shipton's rental car, blanketed in six inches of fresh snow, remained out front.
She claims Donnie isn't Shipton's son.
While he wanted to avoid further involvement in Edith Shipton's troubled world, he felt proud of his wife inherent sense of compassion toward anyone in trouble.
I don't have Shipton's dough or his connections, but I'm not going away either.
I guess I just automatically think the worst of anything that comes out of Shipton's mouth, regardless.
Edith Shipton's jaw dropped and a panicked look spread across her white face.
Jerome Shipton's smile disappeared.
He too was troubled to distraction by Shipton's presence, enough to pass up such an obvious chance to pull Fred's leg.
Dean, crossing his fingers at being on a roll, decided to ask about the death of Shipton's son.
She was all a-babble over Shipton's fall and dismayed that she couldn't find her sister.
Not only did the intensifying snow make climbing even more dangerous than usual, but Shipton's accident had cloaked a pall over everyone's activities.
And worse yet, he felt a strange shiver of discomfit at Cynthia's odd reaction to Jerome Shipton's death.
Gladys is happy as hell about Shipton's swan dive.
Dean knew the old man was itching to raise the more important topic of Jerome Shipton's death.
I was on the scene of Shipton's swan dive with Mountain Rescue but it happened inside the city line so it's the City of Ouray's territory.
I thought you said they were getting ready to spread Shipton's body parts around to the sick and needy and then plant what was left.
Dean managed to whistle down a young boy who agreed to use his snow blower on Dean's unfinished sidewalk, for an amount Dean considered ridiculous, but he knew he needed to get up to snuff on Shipton's fall before he was totally on the defensive.
Dean frowned, perturbed at being discovered scrounging through Shipton's belongings, but he continued.
While she denied any knowledge of her phone number being in Shipton's room, Dean questioned if she was telling the truth.
As they came in sight of the building, two men were lugging Shipton's belongings to a waiting car.
Mick, trailing behind with Penny, called over his shoulder, "Why don't you just round up all of Shipton's enemies, rent a stadium and interview them?"
Have you been in Shipton's room?
Dean remembered Shipton's luggage and the container that held the rope.
That, coupled with Cynthia's strange behavior at the news of Shipton's fall bothered him far more than he'd allowed himself to believe.
But then he pictured his beautiful wife, her unfailingly sweet and kind nature, and refused his mind's picture of her kneeling there in the snow, calmly sawing Shipton's rope until it parted, plunging him to his bloody death.
I wish I knew Shipton's condition and what, if anything he saw or told them he saw.
Let's look for the person who would either benefit from Shipton's death or hated him strongly enough to cut his rope.
My guess is someone did a bit of planning for Jerome Shipton's big fall, and Edith hasn't demonstrated any real talent for long-range thinking.
No, whoever sliced Jerome Shipton's line did so after he'd partially descended.
Then Fred asked, "What did she have to say about Shipton's fall when the two of you drove to the airport?"
Shipton's told them I'm in bed with you against him and if they haven't bought what he said in total, they've sure banked the down payment.
Why the lack of candor on Shipton's condition?
There was evidence of her reluctance to discuss some element of the accident.
Dean felt the beginnings of a headache creep along the base of his neck as he tried to concentrate on who, among the cast of characters cloistered snugly in Bird Song, might have been responsible for Jerome Shipton's fall.
I got the poop on Shipton's condition.
Dean thought about it for all of ten seconds after Weller left, but once more on his bicycle, all thoughts of his future were restricted to immediate concerns of removing himself and his wife from the list of prime suspects in Jerome Shipton's attempted murder.
As he peddled the road to Ouray, he tried to formulate a scenario of Shipton's ice park fall that made sense.
Shipton's fall did not fit either category.
Dean hadn't been in the vicinity of Shipton's fall.
Fred's life was a mystery in some respects but he was honest and his report of Cynthia after Shipton's fall was certainly not a fabrication.
While he hated even speculating about a child murderer, it was the first time Shipton's attempted killing began to make any sense.
The police are already investigating Jerome Shipton's accident and—" "Accident?
I'd like to hear Donnie's side of the story about the drowning of Shipton's son, too.
"Well," he said, little-kid excited, "I got the real poop on the death of Shipton's son!
Dean's mind churned the details of the recent happenings, trying to make sense of Shipton's orchestrated plunge to the river, and the strange reactions of those still sleeping beneath Bird Song's roof, and elsewhere.
Dean leaped from his bed and charged up the stairs to Edith Shipton's room!
