Max's Mystery Novel - Episode 9


If you are new to following Max's Mystery Novel... you'll find Episodes 1 thru 8 by clicking on the picutre like this one in the column to the right. All the episodes except this one are there.

So, during Episode 8 we left it that Max was dancing around on HH's desk to show her a key piece of evidence. Max was sure the murderer had stolen something out of the folder on that desk... So we pick the story up in Max's own words...

Thank goodness HH finally recognized that I wasn't dancing on that folder for my health. The folder was much thinner than it was before Fred was murdered. I was positive that the murderer had stolen something out of it.

"What is it Max?" HH asked. Then she moved me aside

"The pictures...? Where are the pictures Fred had with his manuscript?"

Now, we're cooking, I thought. HH was finally catching the drift of my message. She picked up a yellow sticky note that she had stuck to the pictures. It read... "Two copies. One for office and one for Stefanie."

"At least Stefanie has a set of those pictures and we can look at them to see what the murderer was after," HH said to me.

I followed her to Stefanie's desk. You have to understand that Stefanie had just started and wasn't completely moved in. She rented one of the office spaces in Writer's Creative Studio from HH and paid part in money and part by doing the photography and design work for HH.

I jumped up on Stefanie's desk to get a better look, but at a glance, I knew that the pictures weren't there. There wasn't a folder fat enough to contain the pictures. I thought she had put them in her briefcase to take home, but I didn't know how to convey that to HH.

HH pulled out her phone and called Stefanie's number. I watched her intently as she waited. Finally she said. "Oh... who's this?"

"Yes, I'm the owner of Writer's Creative.... Yes, yes it is.... Sheriff Johnson? Stefanie what? Okay. We'll be right there.

HH hung up the phone and turned to me. "Max.... Stefanie's been kidnapped. We have to go over there. You think you'll be good on a leash? You can find clues better than anyone."

I didn't wait to answer HH. I ran up the stairs to get my leash. Of course, I'd be good on a leash. Detective Max was ready for action....
