She gave me the rundown on Scarlett Wilcox. She was a platinum blonde that, according to Deborah, looked like she should be starring in one of those stag films that you wouldn't find showing at your neighborhood theater. She drove a 1948 red convertible Buick Roadmaster and lived in an apartment house on Hawthorne Boulevard.

"Thanks, Deborah. I'm going to get to the bottom of this soon."

"Mmhmm," she mouthed sarcastically. "Just make sure you don't get to the bottom of Scarlett. Or the top. Or the in between bits."

"We'll see," I said as I hung up the phone...

    Thanks, Neville. It's drawing to a conclusion but there's still a ways to go (and I haven't even finished writing it).

    I was torn about introducing Scarlett and wondering if Jake should get involved with her. But, he's not married to Deborah or anything. And he did save her from being murdered by her husband, so I think he deserves a reward.

    There ya go Jake... Daddy Christopher says it's OK for you to have a bit of rumpy-pumpy with Scarlett. (and if you don't mind me asking, can you give her one for me too!)
