It had been three weeks since I solved Courtney's murder. I puffed on a cigarette as Neil stumbled into my office.

"Remember that Spanish chick – Rose Blossom?" Neil looked pale.

"Yeah. Why?" I leaned forward and snubbed out my cigarette in the ash tray. I should really quit.

"She's dead." His voice cracked – we went to school with Rose "And she needs you to solve her murder."
