Trudy Roundtree -- the only woman on the Ogeechee police force -- is not exactly excited about Hen Huckabee's request that she investigate Tanner Whitcomb's report that "he's run over somebody" given that Whitcomb is one of the town's odder oddballs: he doesn't have a car or a driver's license, he simply walks/putt-putts around town holding his hands at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock on a hubcap. |
But when Trudy finally interprets Tanner's rambling, and the man leads her to a dead body with tire tracks on his shirt, Trudy has to think twice about the ability of a car-less weirdo to do someone in. Tanner's also "driving" with a brand-new hubcap, has the dead guy's watch and cell phone in his ever-present plastic bag, and swears he "bumped" the dead guy when he was "driving" the night before.
Could it be that Tanner was actually the killer?
