Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 81

…Agent Daniels – The Man of Many Hats…

The OSS (Office of Strategic Services) forerunner of the modern CIA, had served its purpose during the recently concluded world war; somebody had to keep the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines on the same page. There is a danger when separate organizations do not share intelligence and the OSS virtually forced them to. If that essential fact is a lesson learned, then it becomes an important memo to the future and heeding it is highly recommended.

In the case of the Libby Affair, the military plays no part. Domestic matters are left to people like Agent Daniels, who operate on the opaque fringes of the world stage; no first names required.

As Cephus, to Forever Mastadon, Agent Daniels is a Vatican insider who leaks PapalWorld Agnostica-001 matters. He provides advanced notice of where the Pope is going and what his agenda is. Keeping track of the Pope is one of “their” obsessions. And it is because of this usefulness, that Cephus/Daniels/Rogue is being brought into the inner circle, not of FM but the mysterious World Agnostica Unlimited.

Agnostica has not made the connection between the name Cephus and the bible; had they dug a little deeper they would have discovered that Cephus was Noah’s fourth son, Noah representing God’s greatest display of omnipotence; all of Satan’s (best) vanquished in favor of God’s (hand picked), i.e. The Flood.

Inside an innocuous building on Via Catone,  in not one of Rome’s finer neighborhoods, Cephus has been summoned to the top floor. There is no elevator to confuse what number that floor would be. Elevators were not invented in the 19th century A.D. and judging by the well-worn Italian granite steps, by centuries of heavy use, it is in accord with the outwardly abandoned appearance on this sleepy public way.The_Great_Deception

Be it at four or five stories, the steps end at the top, yet the mean temperature has dropped with every level, from a moderate 16 outdoor degrees Celsius to minus 2, below freezing, without the assistance of compressed ammonia.

Daniels/Cephus will set aside any possible explanation for later, having been met in the hall by Canisso/Wolfgram, dedicated defender of “The Great Deception”.

…the patient does mention one incongruous word – wolf …

Wolf by Mark Adlington

“We’ll be there,” Constance bursts into the conversation from the 2nd floor at 6137 Kimbark, “first thing in the morning!”

“Who is that intriguing new voice; does the university have a party line?” asks the curious psychiatric professional.

“That would be Constance Caraway. She represents the private investigation firm we hired to help locate Willard Libby,” injects Martin Kamen.

“Well yes, by all means Miss Caraway, I will be at my office at 5:00 AM, our Rise and Shine time.”

“One quick question, Doctor Steinberg, has our mister Libby had any visitors?”

“My no; we believe someone dropped him off at the front gate… though he does mention one incongruous word – wolf … we are out in the middle of nowhere, but there aren’t any native  gray wolves, perhaps deer and coyotes.”

“Wolf,” Constance makes eye contact with her two allies, both of whom were thinking the same thing; not the four-legged mangy predator, rather the two-legged variety in sheep’s clothing. “You have been an unexpected pleasure Doctor and we will see you at Rise and Shine!”

“Wow, wow, wow, how about that!” This afternoon turns out to be that Christmas morning now passed, Constance Caraway Private Investigation had missed out on; Santa had just arrived a week late.

“Eddie!” she calls out mockingly! It is one thing to have steady work, but the way he has been “on-call”, there is no rhyme or rhythm to this arrangement; but he’ll be there bright and early, though having do dip into his road atlas for their upcoming expedition to Elgin, Illinois.

“It is as important as ever for you to find Libby’s completed work, Martin. Agree with it or not, it appears that your friend’s findings are currently hidden away in a jumbled brain. We owe it to him to preserve it… so no offense, but we’ll be leaving you behind this time.”

Martin David Kamen takes unusual exception to Constance, assuming an upright assertive position, “I am paying the bills and I will be going to Elgin; Will needs to see a familiar face!”
