Sixth Mention Of The Teitelbaum Divorce
“Got much goin’ on these days?” Luxton said.
“How do you mean?” said Bernie.
“We’re pretty busy.”
We were? First I’d heard of it. Hadn’t done a stitch of work since the Big Bear Wilderness Camp Case, for which we’d been paid, yes, and plus there’d been the bonus of that gold nugget, now at Mr. Singh’s on account of some tax bill coming due, not something I’m clear on and neither was Bernie although he finally gave up on getting an explanation and just cut the check; which bounced, so he cut another one. In short, our finances were a mess. There hadn’t even been any divorce work, which we hated, me and Bernie, but took when nothing else – mostly meaning missing persons cases, our specialty – came along. The Teitelbaum divorce! Mrs. Teitelbaum at the wheel of that fork lift, crushing Mr. Teitelbaum’s classic car collection! And what he did to her boyfriend right after that! Only it wasn’t her boyfriend! I gave myself a good shake. Meanwhile that Luxton dude was talking again.
