Everyone loved and appreciated Bernie, so it came as no surprise when he befriended Marjorie Nugent, an affluent widow who was as well known for her sour attitude as her fortune. Bernie frequently traveled with Marjorie and even managed her banking affairs. Marjorie quickly became fully dependant on Bernie and his generosity and Bernie struggled to meet her increasing demands. Bernie continued to handle her affairs, and the townspeople went months without seeing Marjorie. The people of Carthage were shocked when it was reported that Marjorie Nugent had been dead for some time, and Bernie Tiede was being charged with the murder.

Synopsis: Everyone is searching for something - and Stu Preissler, Brad Harris and Kenny Bostick are determined to not only find their "something," but to be the very best at it. Like this intrepid, continent-trotting trio, most of us dream about being at the top - whether it be as the supreme athlete, the best-selling author, or maybe the award-winning artist. It can be anything, but ideally it’s something you're passionate about. For Stu, Brad and Kenny, that means being the world's greatest....birder. In THE BIG YEAR, an extraordinary race becomes a transformative journey for wealthy industrialist Stu, computer code-writer Brad, and successful contractor Kenny, who race across the continent on a Big Year, a whirlwind competition to see who can spot the most species of birds in North America within one calendar year.
