Ross Macdonald and Iggy
And yes! Iggy was out! Out and free! Out and free and running around crazily, his huge ears flopping and flying. I hardly heard what Bernie was telling Suzie, maybe something like this:
“The long-ago violent act was this killing – almost certainly an accident, but a killing just the same – of a young woman who was in the wrong place when Louis B. Mayer and Erich von Stroheim were struggling for the gun. That struggle got captured on film, film that might have been shot by Ezra Printz, PR flack, but for sure ended up in his hands.”
“How do we know it’s a real killing,” Suzie said, “and not some kind of scene?”
“If it was just play acting there wouldn’t have been all this effort to find it,” Bernie said. “Also, it was labeled ‘The Greed Murder’. But the main thing is you’d have to see it. It’s on the desk in the office.”
Suzie went that way.
“I thought you said it was in the safe,” said Trimmer.
“Caught in a lie,” said Bernie.
And meanwhile, Iggy was zooming around, making lots of sudden stops to mark every possible object.
