I'm busy with too many things, so Dick Tracy is the only strip I read regularly these days.
So there’s still hope? LOL
It could still be a book, even though she called it a “toy.” Considering how expensive such things can be, it makes sense that it’s a sort of “plaything” in some sense, even if she appreciated the idea that the visitor was going to only touch with gloves.
Good morning™, everyone!
Lee Ebony is on the job! Your prayers have been answered, those who were missing her. It might only be a cameo, but at least she is there. We’ll see if she has more to do in this investigation. I wonder what was in volume IV. Maybe (I hope) we’ll find out later.
So… a stab wound to the chest. Ms. Caxton was also killed by stab wounds to the chest. It does seem like the same M.O.
Good point. It would make more sense to me if both were murdered within a short time, although many questions remain. Where was he all that time?
I’d say that would be a fairly good bet.
I mean that the story so far has gradually focused on manuscripts or books. This library sure is slow doing anything.
Manutius got his name scrambled again!
Medieval manuscripts. It was all leading to that up till now.
11:35 on what day? in what month? what year, in fact? We can’t really draw any conclusions from that information, except that the Institute doesn’t keep good records. I still think that a series of murders is not likely to be 11 months apart, but then we have to puzzle over how the body got there recently or if Manutius went into his office recently without even signing in and was murdered there. That’s definitely a possibility.
We don’t know, but they were on their way to Europe the last time we saw them. It’s very possible that we won’t see them again for a very long time, if ever. I think that sending them to Europe very much ends their story, at least for the time being.
I don’t know, though. So far, he doesn’t look any more suspicious than anyone else. I’m not inclined to start a suspects list yet. I think we need a little more information.
