Detective Biography

When a knock came at my door one stormy Winter's eve I thought more than twice on acquiring a sudden bout of selective deafness. The matter however was taken out of my hands as Rasputin unstretched himself from his recumbent place at my feet, stood, and performed as all good bloodhounds do when trouble is afoot. That is to say, he howled like the Banshees.

Making my way to the door, I picked up as I went a stout cane from the elephant's foot in the hallway. I swung the door open quickly, hoping to catch my nocturnal visitor by surprise, and indeed I did, for there was a brief (and crude) exclamation as the rain-soaked figure of Charlie De Lacy toppled towards me. I stepped aside neatly and let him fall. There was a satisfying thud. Ras', recognising our visitor, gave him a brief look of disgust, and a cautionary growl, before sauntering back towards the sitting room.

"Very dramatic I'm sure", I sighed.

Charlie picked himself up neatly. "Hello old thing. Dashed good of you to see me at this late hour", he chimed unpeturbed (and as if I had had a choice). "Murder most foul I'm afraid. A mission of mercy no less!" He rattled off the statement so quickly that I hardly had time to decipher his words.

"Well, you're not the victim", I said calmly, looking him up and down. "Should I assume then that you have committed this terrible deed yourself?"

Charlie looked at me in a state of mock-indignance, "My word, no! I represent a friend; Tommy Clayton." I didn't recognise the name. He explained. "Tom and I have been keeping company, but well things as they are, we've had to keep it hush hush, if you catch my drift." I did. Charlie was an actor: a star of stage and screen. The people loved him, but more to the point, so did the press.

"Tonight Tom turned up for our usual tete'a'tete in quite a lather. Seems his mater has been done in!" I let the statement stand. Charlie looked at me sheepishly - if a wolf can look sheepish. "I may have promised Tommy that you would look into it for him." I raised an eyebrow. "For 'me' then old bean", he pleaded. "Besides", he said coquettishly, "You know how it is when my passions are stirred." I laughed. "Shall we be off then?" he offered. "What is it you say 'One must attend the scene of a crime before it is decimated by fat constables with heavy boots and greasy fingers!'"

To my chagrin, I found I was already pulling on my coat and searching for Rasputin's leash. Though I hadn't yet decided who I might collar, Charlie or the hound. "And where will we find this 'friend' of yours?" I asked resignedly.

Charlie opened the door and pointed out through the rain to a cab on the other side of the street, "I took the liberty of bringing poor Tom along. You can interrogate him on the way."

"I do not interrogate, I interview", I insisted. But Charlie had already bolted. I looked down at Ras', who had come to my call, "You have my permission to bite him whenever you see fit."
