The Plot Thickens



Hamberg issued a firm "no comment" when reached by phone in New Orleans. Asked about Reardon's work at Gotham Writers' Workshop, a woman named Linda who answered the phone there said she would have to check with the director and then returned to announce: "I'm supposed to say we have no comment." Harrington, who described himself as Reardon's partner, insisted he couldn't comment because "it's not time for that yet" but promised "I've got a lot more" to say.

But while no one is speaking for her directly now, Lisa Reardon's version of her motivation is an open book: grist for her novels, hinted at strongly in Hamberg's letter of support, referred to by her psychiatrist--and spelled out more specifically in Reardon's letter to Hamberg that was introduced into public record not by the defense, but by the prosecution.

The accused in the shooting is also an accuser.

Reardon's mother won't discuss her daughter's allegations. Reached by phone at their home in Dexter Township, George Hicks initially says "no comment" as well. But when asked whether he is aware that his daughter's accusations against him are part of the court record, introduced in their clearest form by the prosecution, he volunteers: "That's because I told them--the prosecutors--that it never happened. I've told everyone that." Asked to explain, he adds: "She didn't bring it up until she was twenty-eight years old. Maybe somebody did something to her, but it wasn't me."
