“She?”

Gangsters BannerPreviously: Black Cloud pulled out his communicator, “Don’t say anything—I’m calling my office.”

He put his phone on speaker and a single screen-touch later, “Hey Bill, what’s up?” A voice accompanied by a full-color image of the speaker filled the screen.

“Not a lot, Hank. I’ve made contact with some Minicucci enemies and am exploring opportunities with them.”

“Who is the guy standing next to you? That’s a mighty-cool suit he’s wearing.”

“An enemy of Minicucci—trustworthy but a bit naïve. Gotta run—just wanted to check-in.”

“Stay in touch, buddy.”

Liam McOsker was stunned to silence…

Meanwhile—in Moosehead City…

Adventure 5—Gangsters—Juco—Episode 9— Chris arrived at Moosehead City Farkleberry’s early—and as a bonus—Philip Marlowe was uninjured by his pedal-to-the-metal 150 mile sprint. She turned the fabled “Beagle Brigade” loose on the crime-scene. After fifteen minutes of serious-sniffing—all the beagles came-up with was the make of the tires on the suspect vehicle, “The car had Cooper tires, about the right size for a mid-sized car,” Head-Sniffer Handy reported, “After-market tires. That’s all we got.”

Head-Sniffer Handy reported to the Sheriff

Head-Sniffer Handy reported, “After-market tires. That’s all we got.”

“Thanks Handy,” Sheriff McCoy smiled (how could he not smile at the tiny dog who was the lead-sniffer), and then turning to Chris, “Thanks Chris. Take the pups home and give’em a steak dinner charged to the County Sheriff’s office.”

Chris did just that—Handy, the tall leader and the other two remaining beagles of the “Beagle-Brigade,” who all chose NOT to be adopted—and to remain together as a skilled search and rescue team clambered into Chris’ squad. Their mouths already watering in anticipation.

Meanwhile—still parked on the gravel road… we find Black Cloud and Liam McOsker… “We need more folks to help us gain control…”

“I know that, Liam, and I have an idea. I need to make a private call.”

McOsker pulled off the gravel back road

“I know that, Liam, and I have an idea. I need to make a private call.”

Liam got that message and got back in the car as Black Cloud moved some distance away—just to be sure, “Hey Wyatt, this is Black Cloud—I need some undercover help, you know anyone?”

“Me?”

“No—someone who is more willing than you to go for the gun.”

“HA! But you’re right. I hate that. I do have someone, ‘though—someone you can count-on—someone whose trigger-finger is ALWAYS itching.”

“Good. Talk to your friend Farkleberry and outfit him with an older car with a very-powerful motor. This is deep-cover, so make-sure he’s someone who won’t be missed.”

“No problem—she is often away on missions for relatively long periods of time.”

“She?”

Thus concludes Adventure 5—Gangsters…. But our story WILL be continued…
