Once again, this bit is directly after last week’s.  No one is eating, but they are gloating a little bit over finally trapping the man who has been dogging their steps since the murder*—and who might have committed it . .  .

 “Some people,” the Pressman said with something approaching relish, “prefer not to carry identification on their person.”

“And I’ll bet he refused point blank to give his name,” I added.

Charlie nodded.  “Yeah—pitched a real snit from what I heard.  You know him?” he asked.  “’Cause if you do, you know I’ll have to call it in.”

The Pressman and I shook our heads as one.  “We’ve never seen him before,” I said, widening my eyes as far as they would go.
