The Investigators, Inc. The Dead Lawyer Case. Chapter 12. Found.

We got back to the hotel and found out that Rock had returned. It seems that Sky was getting a bit worried about me with all the action we have seen so far, plus knowing that Crystal and Macey had both been kidnapped, though Crystal was back. So was Macey now, but Sky did not know that yet. “Man, that boy is bigger than me,” said Tiny. Rock just laughed and said he had a brother that was even bigger than him. Tiny just shook his head.

“I have a job for you Rock,” I said, “but it will mean flying back home again.” “Hey, I just got here, do I get to rest a bit first?” he asked. “Yes, you can wait until tomorrow to leave,” I said, “but this paperwork is getting too much attention, so I want it back home where it will be safe for a while. And I want to send Macey back home with you too. She seems to be well known here so we will have to do something about that.”

I called Annelie and asked her to get busy with a new identity for Macey. Then I asked to speak with Sky. “Cannot do that Lieutenant,” she said, “she is not here.” “Oh, out having fun while I work,” I said laughing. Just then our door opens and in comes Angel, Crystal and…Sky! All of them looking identical. “Can you pick the right Sky?” they all said together. “Not a problem,” I said and went over to Sky right away.

“I lost,” said Carver. He thought Sky was in the middle. “You will be heading back too,” I said, “too dangerous here.” “That is exactly why I am staying here,” she said, “you need more protection.” “Better listen Lieutenant,” said Carver smiling. Just then John called, they had followed some of the clubhouse boys to see if they might go to warn Cam, and they did.

He gave me the address and we were soon on our way. We left the girls behind this time though, except for Sky and Kristina, they might be helpful in dealing with Cam’s girlfriend. Seems she is with Cam at the moment, might even be her house. Clarence had gone around behind the house while the clubhouse boys were there, and had made sure the car in back would not be usable for Cam. There was still a car in front, but John and Clarence would make sure he did not go anywhere in that car either.

The clubhouse boys left after a short visit, with Cam and his girlfriend standing on the front porch. They then went inside and we showed up shortly afterward. Again, we surrounded the house, not knowing how many people might be inside. Clarence had a briefcase with him, so he took it and went to the front door. The briefcase was just in case they saw him coming, he would have an excuse to be someone else.

He put our little device on the door, then started to walk away. One of the other guys did the same on the back door. He called when he was finished and I set them off. Nice explosions followed and everyone rushed inside with guns ready. We took Cam by surprise obviously as he was not ready at all. Some of the guys went upstairs to make sure no one else was around. Sky and Kristina took the girl into the kitchen while we questioned Cam in the living room.

A few hard slaps and he was a bit more willing to cooperate. He admitted that he and his gang had killed the lawyer and his wife, but he was working for Carnival. Apparently the lawyer had started to blackmail Carnival with the information he had. Carnival did not like that, naturally, so he ordered him killed, along with his wife and daughter. But they could not find the daughter.

He was about to say something else when someone shot through the open window, killing Cam. The man began to run and one of Major’s men went out after him. But someone else in the waiting car shot him. Then Rock and Tiny went out shooting with their big guns. The car had every window shattered and two men inside killed, but the driver escaped unharmed and just yelled do not shoot while keeping his hands in the air.

They were men from Carnival and had a warning from him to me. Just simply leave while we still could, or die. I never did like ultimatums. But, it might be a good idea to leave and search through all this paperwork at home with Baldwin’s lawyers. It would be safer too. Then we can come back and give certain paperwork to the police to use against Carnival. We can also give some, that pertains to Victor, back to the Major so they can deal with it. Hopefully leaving is the right choice…

To Be Continued.

  1. Hard to know if that is the way to go…going home would be a break for you and the others ! ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฐ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฑ The body can only take so much punishment and that goes for the mind as well ! ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿค”โ—๏ธ

    • Yes, there are pros and cons to both going and staying. But, our main objective is done, we found out who killed the Kathee’s parents. It would be good to get Carnival too since he ordered it done, but that will be much harder. We shall see.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ


  2. Although Cam killed the lawyer and his wife, there seem to be more involved than just Carnival. Protecting the paperwork makes sense right now. Too easy to get separated from it in a public hotel and with so many interested, probably better to leave. But there could be retaliation before you get home or when you get home.

    • Well, our original case was just to find out who killed Kathee’s parents and put those crooked cops behind bars. We succeeded in doing that and we have lots on Carnival that the police could use to put him in prison for a while too, if they can find him. Then there is Victor who wants Carnival too, so we may not need to do anything more with him. However, all of this other interest in these papers is unusual and I would like to go over them thoroughly to find out why. The safety at home seems the best thing. Since we came here as working for Victor, then no one here would know where we live. That should help us, at least for a while. Staying here I think is too dangerous and too easy to lose these important papers.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  3. It just keeps getting more interesting!๐Ÿค”
    Perhaps going home is safer? But you could also lose touch with Carnival, which might be tough finding him again! I think you should keep the pressure on him while you can!๐Ÿค” He’s already lost a handful of men and the gang has been dismantled to! He can’t have too many more loyal followers, those thatcare left have seen what happened to the others… he could on his last legs!๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ
