Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 13
…Nagging questions; we all have them…
Nagging questions; we all have them.
- Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
- Which falls faster to the ground, a bowling ball or a ping-pong ball?
- Is gray really a color?
- How many scientists does it take to guess the age of the universe?
Answers: 1. no one knows 2. the bowling ball hurts more if it lands on your head 3. no, unless it’s your favorite 4. three, if they live to tell the tale
The last question is different from the others and the only vexing one that concerns Constance Caraway, even though she has strong opinions about the others. When you are starting from the ground floor, it makes no sense to be standing on the roof.
( Cab driver Eddie has been sent home, mercifully, for the remainder of Christmas Eve and may even make Midnight mass with his family at Saint Stanislaus Catholic Parish. He then must explain why he has to return to Lemont Township to pick up a fare early on Christmas Day.)
None of this here all exactly has that holiday feel for anyone involved; while the rest of Chicago celebrate Christmas and the folks back in Tallahassee, for that matter.
The detective duo is moving at the same brisk pace of their current employer Martin… or whoever came up with the 50 grand… you can take your pick. He is leading them down into a series of hallways that have a subterranean feel to them. Hansel & Gretel would be leaving breadcrumbs behind so as to find their way back out.
It is entirely possible, from what has been gathered so far, that Kamen’s colleague Libby seems to have developed a theory or come upon some information that someone definitely does not want to see the light of day.
“You are saying that this is the building, here at the lab, that Willard Libby was seen last?” Constance is piecing together the man’s last known moments.
“Alright, then! All we have to do is interview everyone who was on the grounds that day,” Fanny’s simple solution may have some holes.
