Man, this summer heat is ridiculous! It’s too hot to do anything but sit in front of the fan with a tall glass of iced tea and a book. Fortunately, I heard that the book I’d read has a sequel. I went back to the library, so now it’s just me, my fan, my tea, and book two!
It was a bright and sunny morning. That in itself was odd. Two men came through my office door. Oddity number two. They brought a peculiar smell into the room with them, but there the oddities ended. I recognized that smell.
They introduced themselves. “I’m Reed Mark Lern”, said the first.
“& Ward Lee Digest, here,” said the second, as they shook my hand.
“You gents lawyers?” I asked.
“No,” said Lern, “but you could say we’re on a journey of Law.”
“And good news, too,” added Digest.
“Well, what can I do for you?” As their tale unfolded, it was as if Onaleah Laymen had walked back through my door all over again.
“Two days ago….Dr. Knott…..his ES-V2004 on overload….” Then they said something that shocked me to the core. I had to take the case.
I’m Luther N. Pastor, Private Eye.
