Info of my choice

The arresting officer Stephen Spiro has received and replied to several letters from Mark mostly telloing Spiro to read the catcher in the rye. Spiro thinks that the book will help him find a motive for the killing, but the interesting thing is the letters are up for grabs for 75,000 dollars
