Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 33
…A simple 2×3.5” handout gives them their first truly tangible clue…
The good news: Fanny is set free. The bad news: her hands are tied and they have pushed her out of the car, somewhere near a rail yard.

“There is a list of names in here… and my name is on it.” Martin Kamen swallows hard upon seeing his name right below Willard Libby while above Fermi and Sam Ruben.
