John Brown’s Body

“Chief relayed the message. Told them there was nothing he could do about it, budgets, all that crap.”

“Here. Bottle I gave you was half full when I brought it to you. Maybe you should just skip the eggs and eat a bowl of hot sauce. Better yet, maybe you two could get out of here, act like real detectives.”
