    I got it right, but am wondering why the author would use wrong door. Even from the inside the one with the handle would be easier .

    This is the worst one yet!! Not only does the left door not
    have a handle, it also does not have the cut out for the bolt
    from the lock on the right door or the bolt at the top or the
    bottom of the door! He must be one fantastic author if the
    publishing company would pay that much for the book
    sight unseen!! Why is He using a typewriter? He should
    be using a computer or lap top where He could save what
    He had written! The whole computer or lap top would
    have to been taken to loose to manuscript!

    The side without the handle is held by the one with the handle. Thief breaks glass, looks for handle, opens both sides. Then enters and steals manuscript. After he leaves door with the handle closes. Again, the Inspector is a numbnut. After all, to open the door without the handle, you would have to open the one with the handle first anyways.
    And yeah, the author is an idiot too. Even I, as simple fanfic author I’m using a wordprocessor and save the files on Dropbox.

    Some authors prefer all the clicks, clacks, and dings of a manual typewriter. To each his own. I know someone who prefers to completely write out a manuscript in long-hand before typing it into his computer.

    Publisher can sue to get his advance back. It’s the author’s responsibility to deliver the manuscript on time. Now if he had insured it, we’d be reading a typical case of insurance fraud.

    To her dying day Ann Landers preferred her typewriter & never used a computer to type her column. But using the computer is far preferable since the manuscrpt can be saved on disk and mutiple copies can be printed without use of carbon paper or photocopier. This is also advantageous to college students whose professors never return term papers. The student can still have a copy of an A paper. ☺

    Looking at the position of the rock and the glass fragments, the rock was indeed thrown from outside the glass door. So, the thief broke the door then walked around to the front of the house and rang the doorbell.

    Also, writers who can command a million dollar advance can be idiosyncratic about their choice of writing instruments. Consider George R R Martin who is famous for using an older word processing program for his writing — one without modern features. The rest of us do whatever the publisher asks.
