Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 35
…I may need the back-up, but stay 20 feet behind me and let’s pretend we’re not together…
Once the initial shock of discovering Fanny safe ‘n sound has set in and the requisite debriefing is out of the way, Constance leaves her in Martin’s care for the remainder of the day. The excitement meter needle has been redlining for the last day. It needs to return to normal levels.
Eddie is re-gathered for the task of taking his employer to 33 N. LaSalle Street. She is going to see what she can find out about World Agnostica, at the address listed on that fortuitous business card. What is their deal?
“That building at 33 LaSalle is one of the last skyscrapers built before The Depression. I don’t get many fares from there… bankers are cheapskates and their secretaries are heavy smokers. I pretend not to see ‘em.”
“That’s a bank building, interesting?”
“Thanks for the tip in higher arithmetic Eddie,” she looks up at the top of the building. “If I’m not back in 30 minutes, call the Coast Guard.”
“If anyone asks me what I’m doing, I’ll tell them I’m here for a mortgage on my house.”
“Meet me on the 39th floor and don’t talk to anyone,”
“You’ll need a lock for that Eddie!” the out-of-town sleuth quips.
