Murder Is But A Memory

by

"Yes, Mr. Randolph, Vic here is a very bad boy. He's being investigated by the city of Las Vegas, the state of Nevada, as well the FBI for a veritable cornucopia of criminal activity: money laundering, racketeering, grifting, bribery, fencing, prostitution, extortion, coercion, and a little matter of several unsolved murders in and around the Las Vegas area."

Stane seemed agitated, "Lanyard, I highly doubt you'd ever be mistaken for Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm either!"

Lanyard smiled, "Indeed not. I kill people for money. Or... kill the people that hired me when I don't get full restitution for services performed."

    An honest, decent killer; that's Mr Lanyard. Rebecca he may not be, but refined he certainly seems!

    Thanks, Neville. I liked the idea of an erudite hit man; well read, well-spoken, properly attired as a gentleman should be. Kind of like the James Bond of hired killers.
