“Anybody seen my shirt with the red checks?” Admin says.

“For God’s sake,” says Spence.

“I want to wear it for the signing,” says Admin. “What happened to it?”

I open my eyes. Do I have vague memories about that?

“Why don’t you wear that T-shirt Lily brought back for you from the running of the bulls?” Spence says. “It’s red.”

“But it has a bull on the front.”


Today 10-noon, Spencer Quinn at Brewster Books, 2648 Main Street, Brewster, MA 02631.

Spence: As for the 400 signed copies, Nick and the Atria people are still working on this. Was Admin, let’s say premature, to mention this whole thing before the details were set?

Why not? I’ve actually got one or two things on my mind. Maybe just one. But everyone’s in a big hurry around here. Where, for example, is that shirt of Admin’s, the one with the red checks? I sort of know the answer to that one, if we mean what’s left of the shirt with the red checks. But what’s wrong with the one with the wide blue stripes?

“What’s wrong with the one with the wide blue stripes?” Spence says.

“Can’t find the stupid thing.”

“Are you planning on telling the pre-school story?”


“The one-review thing?”

More silence.

“You could always do the sharks. Or what about the Mounties?”

A crashing sound, maybe from something getting thrown. I head for a nice quiet spot under the kitchen table.

Focused Like A Laser (Whatever That Might Be)

“Son?” said Bernie. “I thought you had twin daughters.”

“I do,” said Colonel Bob. We were in the bar at the Dry Gulch Saloon and Steak House, the patio part, one of my favorite places. We’re partners in the Little Detective Agency, me and Bernie, maybe something I should mention from time to time, and this is a time, so how about now? Colonel Bob is an old pal of Bernie’s from the war, but I only got to know him later – that’s all in Thereby Hangs A Tail. Before Thereby Hangs A Tail was Dog On It. After Thereby Hangs A Tail comes To Fetch A Thief. There’s also the other guy. Some talk went on that he started a new book yesterday, a new kids series. About what? Not sure. I just know the first sentence, because Spence and Admin were batting it around yesterday. Not really batting like baseball, although there is a bat in To Fetch A Thief. Bernie’s hoping to get it after the trials because it’s a Willie McCovey model. Not sure who Willie McCovey is. A perp? Possibly. There’s Willie Mungrew, for example, now at Northern State Correctional, but also Willie McTell, who we listen to sometimes in the Porsche. Have I mentioned the Porsche recently? Maybe tomorrow.
