Techies On The March

“Here’s a link to the company that supplies high-tech canine gear to the SEALS,” Admin says. “Do you think this is something Chet and Bernie would be interested in?”

“I don’t know,” says Spence. “Chet and Bernie run kind of a low-tech operation.”

What was this? Something about the Little Detective Agency? We’ve taken down lots of perps, me and Bernie, and yes, there was one name of Tek. Mirolsav Tek, in fact, who was in the truck hijacking business and is now in the breaking rocks in the hot sun business. The look on his face when he saw that the steering wheel was missing! We still have it, up on the patio wall. What a life!

Welcome Chianti and Watson.

Happy Birthday, Dad. And many, many more.

“How did the talk go?” says Spence.

“No one threw anything,” Admin says.

“Always a good sign.”

It was? Not to me. I almost always like when people throw things. Because then I go get them! Dudes throwing knives? That’s a little different. Once there was this perp, name escaping me at the moment, who had a real pointy nose that reminded me of a knife and he turned out to be good with knives, kind of an interesting something or other. But Bernie can be quick, and he shifted his head just in time, the knife sticking deep into the wall of the shed. After that the pointy-nose dude – what’s that expression? – got what was coming to him. That’s how we do things here at the Little Detective Agency.

From Admin: Here’s Ian once more, Friend of the Month. Ian’s human associate can get in touch with Spence (spence.quinn@gmail) and the prize – a signed copy of To Fetch A Thief – will be winging its way.

Welcome Tigro (who has good taste in literature), Becca, Daisy.

“Here’s something interesting from the inbox,” says Admin. “‘We are pleased to inform you that To Fetch a Thief has been nominated for the Left  Coast Crime 2011 Watson Award, for the mystery with the best sidekick. The awards will be voted on at the convention and presented at a banquet on Saturday, March 26th, 2011, at the historic La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico.'”

What’s this? Sidekick? I hope Bernie won’t be too upset: I’ve always considered him a full partner in the Little Detective Agency.

Ray looked up. When humans are confused they get this expression on their faces, and Ray had it now. Here in the nation within the nation, as Bernie calls it, we’re not quite so easy to read when it comes to confusion. Only my opinion. But our faces, yours and mine, are different. You’ve noticed that, right? Noticing is important in our work – we’re partners in the Little Detective Agency, me and Bernie. Bernie says you can look us up in certain books. Their pictures are down below.

But forget all that. Right now we were on the job – a paying job, and the client was Colonel Bob, father of Ray, the young guy sitting so confused by the pool. What were those things around him? Red-splotched towels? A reddish color, I was pretty sure, although I can’t be trusted when it comes to colors, Bernie says. But the smell: he trusts me on that. And the smell of blood: well, that’s an easy one.

“Ray?” Bernie said. “You’re not dropping the gun.”

Ray glanced down at the gun in his hand, like he was surprised to see it there.
